    Not sure why I was drawn to that plane, must have been the prop and spinner detail?

    About now the stands would be going up.

    But thanks to the China virus they are not.

    So I decide to spent September remodeling my 43 year old kitchen.

    The best part is, it's all made in the USA, flooring, cabinets, counter and appliances.

    Walk in to the appliance store - I do not want made in "China" appliances.

    The 2021 Reno Air Races will be awesome.

    Some years past my three air race buddies (now Co-Home Pylon Captains and the Deputy Chief Judge) and I decided that if, God forbid, we didn't race in September we would get together somewhere and celebrate the best way we can.

    So, three of us leave Monday in my buddy's motorhome and we'll meet the fourth guy in Brian Head, UT., staying at a resort there but spending the evenings boondocking in the RV, watching our video's and thousands of pictures from Reno, cooking the usual dinners (Chowder, Oysters, Steaks, etc), and sitting around enjoying an adult beverage (or three) and making airplane noises! Should be a great week.

    Certainly won't be the same not being at Stead.

    Funny thing, the guy who owns the RV is driving from Calistoga to pick the two of us up in Carlsbad. He's spending tonight in Stead at St Michaels or someplace near the RARA hangar. He said he had to make that detour...the RV wouldn't let him just head straight south. That's Reno...

    Will miss the sweet aroma of sage and jet exhaust...until 2021!

    Owen,

    How fun young man. The 2020 Reno Air Races will be alive in our hearts.

    Heres a video for 5 classes of paper airplanes.

    Practice, qualifying, and 3 days of races. Longest flight from standing position buys the beer/wins gold.

    One of my favorite people!

    Pretty sure the only way I'd have been in a position to get this shot would be that it was during the shooting of Thunder over Reno. BTW, if anyone has a copy, I loaned out mine and have never been able to get it back!

    I hope I finally have my email issues checked..

    I have not been receiving email at my main address, no new message emails have gotten to me for a few days. My email digest is how I'm able to keep track of the board, I get an email each time anything happens there, I see it within seconds, that's just not beeen working and I could not even send email to myself from hotmail account.. they just disappeared!

    Borked around in the guts of the server (remote C/P) unsure what I did that worked but something, so far, worked, and I'm getting emails to my account again.

    The hand temperature gauge - is it hotter out there than in here?
