I got my airworthiness certificate in April 2008 and have 110 hours at this point. I was at Lawrence Co last summer, but I don't like leaving the plane outside. The people at Tri-State tell me they are building some new hangars this summer and I am supposed to be in line for one, but I doubt they will do me any good this year, as I return to Peoria in late August.
I just noticed that you are in Charleston WV. My summer home is just outside Huntington. (I locate my 601 on the Lawrence Co. Airport in Chesapeake). I'll be flying there next week, as soon as the weather permits. Maybe we can get together sometime this summer.
