    Well sir, if I have never before thanked you for your presence, please allow me now to thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing Reno Air Races history here!

    I'm sure you've heard my tale of woe where my 13 year old enthusiasm waned after looking at the event from the top of the last hill almost made it out on my three speed bike back in '64 when I was 13 living in the suburbs just past Greenbrae Shopping Center (going toward Pyramid Lake)

    This has fed my fascination wondering what I might have seen and experienced had my buddy and I braved it and let gravity pull us down the hill we had just climbed, toward the circling glittering dots rounding the pylons below... at the time, we knew not what we had missed by not wanting to pedal back up that darn hill! But we had run out of water and stamina and if I remember correctly, school started the next day, or, had already started and we had to be there early...

    Anyway, sorry for drifting ! It's just that I was.... there... just not... "there" and I suppose that's what has fueled my passion for all of this after all!

    Can't wait for September!

    PS! I just required my second to last laptop which has the necessary expansion slots (no longer available, that I can find) to add cards so I can read my SCSI drive array where all of everything that was not on the laptop and my "recent" (probably three years old) backups that went swimming with the fishes last year... can't find an emoji that has a dombass beating himself on the head for putting his laptop in the "basement" of a recently launched boat!

    ANYWAY, HOPEFULLY I can access about a three year old backup, plus all of my old stuff!

    Reservations made, GSR RV park, have to have hookups, small pets that don't do well in baking motorhome!

    You did well, these 2 shots are awesome. Love the paint scheme she looked nice in white. The shot with drop tanks is a stunner.

    I could look at that one everyday.

    What Wayne said x2.
