3 deaths, each worse than the first. Followed by Divorce.
I have already died twice, got one life left.
Tried before I went to NJSKF at Liberty State Park NJ. One Death.
Called while at NJSKF. Almost died twice. 2nd death.

Still married and with 1 death to go.

I was there last year with the team but it is very expensive to travel to the USA West Coast from the UK.

My first visit was by invitation in 1994. I was there with my family in 2001.

Let's hope that some of the USA and Japanese fliers can come to Europe in 2012.

We ran out of excuses years ago. When you get older, you run out of lots of stuff. This is our 9th year at WSIKF.

Just learned about WSIKF this year!
Dropped a chunk of change on 3 Revs. Skipped going to Cali a few months ago to get the collection off to a good start! Posted Image
Have family to visit in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and we will be attending the International Balloon Fiesta while there! Posted Image

I'm already making plans to attend next year! Posted Image

In the meantime, I must live vicariously through everyone's pictures! Please, take and post lots of pics!!!

Have Rev, Will Travel

Two years ago my friends Rich and Paul called me from the beach at WSIKF and said I had to get out here.

So, I did last year and I get on the plane tomorrow morning to do it again.

Maybe next year I'll have an excuse for not going...

We'll miss you Paul!

Hi Guys....

Had every intention of going (would have been my third year in a row) but......

a broken hand and recent knee surgery has put me out of commission for a bit.

Sunfest is coming soon and I WILL be there with the Rev Riders.... and I can't wait!!!

Have a great time out there.... will be thinking of you all.
Laura

He's welcome to come to the festival here in Cape Town late October and beat some skill into me with that SLE like he keeps promising :P

I guess he could nominate a sufficiently skilled substitute with sufficient finances, but it's just not the same if it's not a monkey
