Wow! What a project :grin: :thumb: It must be so light and I can imagine it being covered in fabric like a WW1 airplane. Good luck Chuck :thumb:

Well, yeah. Fabric covering is still the most practical skin for certain brand new airplanes, even for new designs going into limited mass production.

Rode the Mille over to Aspen for a few days catching up with friends. Today was beautifully cool -- afternoon thunderstorms now brewing:




Lots of loaded bikes coming through, bound for or coming down from Independence Pass. I wonder about the guys standing up on $18,000 ADV bikes to massage their butts. Is there no such thing as a stock all-day saddle?

We went to Marin County last week, where it looks like every 20th car is a Tesla, and the rest are hybrid SUVs. Change is coming fast.

Just back from a four day vintage car rally around the Otago region.  mainly gravel roads and mountain passes.  Nothing younger than 1931 allowed.  About 160 cars all up.  Other than drowning in a ford, splitting a rim 1/4 of the way around, one puncture and having a distributor cap arc all over the place we had a pretty uneventful time. :rolleyes:

Great fun, and had a great run home.  All the bugs from a fairly new build ironed out now. :thumb:

A short shakedown cruise into town after working on my Roamer. No parts left over, nothing fell off, it got me back home, and no rain encountered. Overall it was a good day.

I know that mural. The one on the other side of the parking lot is pretty cool as well, assuming it is still there.

I went out Sunday morning before it got too warm and killed bugs in Ohio as well as PA. 120 miles on mostly secondary roads.  :grin:

Great day on MO State Hy. 38 from Marshfield to Houston. That stretch seems to have an equal number of tight twisties and 80 MPH sweepers. The traffic was so light, I turned around and took it back toward the house!  :thumb:

Have managed to create the environment that allows fireflies to thrive in the back yard , so walking out there at night is a treat , like being a kid again. The rabbits seemed to have disappeared , which makes me sad , at least there is a pet goat in the yard behind .

This no place like home.  I am so lucky to have bought 2 acres of estate lots covering over 2000 acres with a 50 mile view. 27 years ago in the metro Loisville-So. Indiana.  And the fire flies are out. 

The salamander that crawled into the man cave to visit. And a skunk.

Pretty sure your rabbits are just summering here in SC for a change, enjoying playing around the muscadines & choke berry bushes in my back yard.  We've never had this many out back, relaxing in the afternoons and acting the fool in the mornings before it gets hot.    I could probably catch them and ship them back to you...?

Long long day at work today, but 10 minutes on the small block winding it out in the dark on the way home erased everything.

Rode to Vail (135 miles) Monday morning, back Tuesday morning. Not too hot if you leave early and are off the road by 11am. Mille, back on points after the Dynatek business, ran flawlessly and did 50 mpg.

B-  work was sucky for no particular reasons so I came home for some wrench therapy.  I then trashed a set of lower triple clamps and chipped my newly painted frame in the process. But Iím alive and my family is happy and healthy...
