I'm mostly packed as well, but have a nagging feeling that I am forgetting something obvious.

Hi Laura, Hi Brian,

2 gerups here as we fly out on Saturday.

I'm looking forward to meeting with everyone and will not be too disappointed if we do not get the 100. <grins>

The check lists are mostly ticked even if all the bags have not finally been packed.

Safe journeys...

Felix


Hi Felix-

Awesome..... glad you're getting an early start; you have a looooooooooong haul to get there.

I'm also looking forward to meeting everyone I haven't already met. While it will be ever so slightly disappointing that there might not be 100 pilots (only time will tell), it's going to be an amazing experience just to be close to those numbers. Also, all that will be learned in attempting this is extremely valuable, too. :)

Safe and easy travels.
Laura

I guess that would be the obvious thing, but for some reason that's not the nagging thing in my head.

All but the rum, maybe that was it.

Been a big switch to rum as of late.

I'm keen on hard cider myself these days. :)

Arriving Sunday night.

You might meet my dad. From waaayyy across the pond in Germany. His first first kitfestival with age 82! Haven't posted much but I'm exited anyway. BTW everybody is talking about rum and tequilla... I started to cook my own beer 6 weeks ago. Nothing extraordinary yet but every batch was better that Budwiser. Does that count too? See you Thursday PM:)

Lynn and I got to Long Beach last evening around 8. Friends who have been here for several days have had overcast and very little or no wind. We woke up this morning to bright sunlight, and around noon the wind started and blew the rest of the day. From about 2 on it was vented time. Tom King, Bob Oliver and Bill Seward joined us at the end of Bolstad.

Nice day. Fives are fun
