    "Will probably stop at Moriarty. Don't they have a glider museum there?"
    Moriarty, New Mexico, is glider heaven. Yes, please visit the museum there. I flew to the Land of Enchantment fly-in a couple times.
    And I second Billski's suggestion to get a professional look at those linkages. Try to find a wrench with Cherokee experience. `Zis ride new to you?

    My neighbor didn't have any input other than get it looked at. The situation still scares me a little...

    Better luck tomorrow with the winds and the cielings...

    I thought it was something like that. I'm going to get an A&P to look at it tomorrow.

    If you can, borrow a car and go through one of the Antelope Canyon tours. Most require reservation, but this time of year, you can probably get in now.

    I'm just trying to get back to Idaho. But I think I'll come back to spend some time.
    Today is the day to complete the trek. Btw... Hotels here are cheap this time of year.

    Made it back to Idaho after 22.1 hours of flight and $828.36 of fuel. Don't tell Greta.

    It’s like childbirth, you’ll soon forget how painful it was and want to do it again. Cheers!
