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,

    So very cool. Obviously, we all have someplace we would like to be in the days ahead but the underlying truth is the people and the shared experience have to be there too in order for it to be the event we obsess about 24/7/365. So glad you are going to take what life has given us for these days. Enjoy and with luck, we will all raise a glass together a year from now.

    James

    Sometimes, the shot just doesn't work out...

    Anyone think we should start a thread about the "ones that got away shots"?

    I certainly have a ton of them!!!!

    I can sort of imagine racing this thing, but what about landing it? As soon as you flare, the world ahead (including the runway!) is just going to disappear...

    Love this shot. I’ve tried to shoot it many times. Never captured one that pretty. Thanks.
    You'll get your chance, smart guy!

    Careful what you ask for, Wayne. You just got the server issue settled down. This would likely leave ther server farm a smoking hole in the ground! ;-)

    Could be a very entertaining thread tho!
