    Actually better than expected, which is good because the nerves wouldn't let me sleep much the night before so leaned on the caffeine pretty hard to make the trip.

    I ended up being the only airplane with a relief tube, the other planes used the disposable piddle packs or lemon jelly donuts. The problem with those being you need to minimize the number of times you go, so you end up holding it as long as you can. The result was the running joke was I was tagging all the states like a christmas puppy.

    Oh well it was nice to have one creature comfort.

    Thank you for asking.

    The arrival of you guys Monday was one of the cooler sights of the week, knowing what you were attempting to get there. It was cool to see you arrive and count out the planes as they did a tail chase arrival. The high speed pass and pull up with the Siren looked really good!
    The Wasabi Siren tent talk was also very well presented. I still wonder how you repaid the Thunderbirds for their special guest appearance...

    Wayne, well spoke. Jenn and I are trying to figure out how we can be ready to move the airplane again in a few short weeks. Thanks for the compliment on the airplane and thanks for giving us a place to talk about the airplane!!!

    Supercub,

    The trip went great! The tightest spot was initially after takeoff. There was clouds and rain from Mojave to Vegas which was the first time I had flown the racer in the rain. That combined with some of the airplanes taking on ice, was pretty aggressive for a little homebuilt like mine. But after that it was really fantastic. A five knot tailwind and not even any turbulence.

    Thanks for asking!!

    Elliot
