I wish I wuz more growed up in the 750, and I'd join y'all at 10K, as we're building the rudder tomorrow and getting the new nose-gear powder-coated for installation next week (more foot-dragging). After that, and after we get back from the Chino fly-in, we'll be heading up toward Yerington by road, then to Olinghouse, NV, Black Rock Desert, and points N and E before we head S and W. I'll try to attach a pic of the rig so y'all can pick us out from the throngs at Yerington, etc. When I get throughly wrug out, I hope to try that 10K strip someday.

Stephen, how did you get a woman and a chair into your plane and stay under 1320? Don't answer that.

Best to you all,

Great pictures! How far south you guys going? Next week, the 25th, we're going to be west of you in the Sierras looking at landing spots, and there's one you can definitely land at (10,000 elevation) close to us. We'll be higher up, but let me know if you'll be around and interested. We will be there until Sunday.
