    Have to wonder

    I bought my RV-8 tail kit in 1999. Didn't start working on it till 2014. I'm still working on it (now on fuselage) when I have time. Don't count anyone out till they sell out.

    Aerovee magnetrons.

    Don't Do Anything Dumb

    Wow! He's really lucky he didn't get a wooden stake up the old wazoo. Looks like San Joquin valley, around Fresno area. Those rows are propped up with wooden stakes and hog-wire. No bueno!

    Still breathing!

    Ha! I told my boss almost 7 months ago that I was resigning as of March 15th. For the past 15 years, I worked in a Level I trauma center as a CT and trauma X-ray technologist, right in what is now Seattle's "ground-zero" for the pandemic. On March 15th, I had my first and last COVID-19...
