Avisim Reno adventure

Recommended Posts

How many of you ProPilot fans are going to the Avsim event near Reno? I need to know before I start the process to get there. If the "family" is not going, well...Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN.

I had originally planned to go, Jerry. But three unexpected and expensive problems popped up for me just a few weeks ago. So I can't go either. :'(-Lindy

Jerry:I had not as yet made reservations, but I am leaning very strongly towards being there. At this point in time, it is highly likely that I will be there. Too bad about the Captain not being in attendance. Doc Bryant

Thanks Doc,Short odds. I wonder IF my boss has something planned for me that would keep me out of there too?I went to a meeting of the Tennessee Valley RV Builders Group (TVRVBG) over in Hartselle, Alabama tonight and discovered more details about the plane I am planning to build. I could see just how much I learned at OSH and how much more there is to prepare before taking the plunge. The folks are great, pilots all! Each with stories to tell of building and flying. A good evening, worth the 2 hours drive each way (145 miles).Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN.

I had planned on going -- it's going to be a great event. But, we're getting a free week at my Dad's condo in Pagosa Springs, CO the same week. And, free wins, even though we already did a free week in July at his place.Dan

Doesn't look like I'm going to be able to get up there either Jerr.I got me a softy-more starting school again this year and something tells me I'll be a tad more involved in "Band Dad" things on the weekends this season.Plus, I need to save some cash for a car. Alli turns 16 this year too and I don't want to have to drive her to work.......:-zhelpPork

And I found out there are no seats on the flights from SLC to Reno, so I am not going either. Oh, well....Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN.

I should have read this before making my reservations, LOL.Oh well.The Horizon was booked at the super good rate. I got a room for 159 a night. Or I could have chosen the elevator room. Which was nice of them.Doc BryantMaybe I ought to try Harrah's across the street and see if I can get one comped for the weekend.If I can't snag a freebie, don't set a place for me either Tom.

I had to decide whether to spend for a backyard fence, Reno, or the RV. My neighbor wasn't ready to "split" for the fence, so the RV won. Two instruments to finish the panel, exaust pipes, and other odds & ends. Another measly four grand (that I don't have) should about finish it. Transceiver, transponder, altitude encoder, antenna's, and prop governor. L.Adamson

I understand that trade off. The Reno adventure takes funding away from my restoration of my 1952 Dodge M37 truck.Doc Bryant
