    I think she’s pulling our legs, guys. Nobody is THAT ignorant. And the class warfare bit is pure comedy. The only redeeming part of her posts is the desire to be an ambassador for aviation. Everything else is just comedic trolling for reactions.

    CG what in 4 pages you only drop in 4 times AND MOST OF THAT WAS TO SHOW OFF WHAT WE AS REAL BUILDERS WANT TO SEE. wHY DON'T YOU GET IN THE AIR OR JUST GET!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why not show something that a pilot can appreciate like a flying craft. That is yours.

    Chops, how would you know what classes or segments of society are at Oshkosh, or in what percentages? I've only been there twice, and I can definitely tell you there are po' boys and Daddy Warbucks and everything in between... with each group pretty well represented. One of the magical things about Oshkosh is that you can find whatever side of the social railroad tracks you think you fit into, and not ever have to bother with the other folk if you don't want to. If you want to hang with the minimalist ultralight crowd, or the food stamp scratchbuiders, sharing ramen noodles with a picture of Lenin on your tent, you can. If you can stomach being around Thurston Howell III and his turbine Lancair, or those corrupt soul-less middle classes and their bourgeois RV-6's, then you can hang with them and maybe share in their joy a little. Heavens to Murgatroyd, you may just learn that we all have a lot of common interests in aviation.

    Some people should not go to Oshkosh. But how do you know if you have not been once? I have failed millions of times. The ones that stick with me are the ones where I did not try. Nothing wrong with failure if you tried. Everything is wrong if you did not. I don’t care if you miss out because you don’t care. I do care if you care. Only you can keep it in the shed or bring it out side. I think it’s too bad you did the trailer first. If you had done the airplane first, there would be lots of help to trailer it for you. Cart before the horse.

    I thought one of the "rights of passage" was transitioning through that stage in life where you believe you are a know-it-all but in reality you are a know-nothing. I went through a stage where I was pretty dumb.

    I agree with that. I would have tackled the plane first. Can photoshop a fake trailer under a plane just as easily as photoshopping a fake plane on top of a trailer.

    We had a gentleman back in my home town of Anna, IL take one of his Kitfoxes and displayed it in the Kroger parking lot. If I recall, his name was Bonn Hartline and I remember seeing one of his planes at Oshkosh in 95.

    For a 'poor girl' she can afford to build a trailer, use a welder in a shop, build (and supposedly fly) multiple aircraft... run a snazzy website, sell t-shirts and playing cards, etc.

    Took my wife robbing our budget and 5 grown kids working to scratch up enough for a plastic welding kit and some plastic welding rod, then another year to get a used Nitrogen Bottle, fill it, get both High and Low pressure regs to use the welder,...

    THIS year, I'm running a go-fund-me to raise funds to build a Biogas Digester of my own design, to consume organic wastes and make gas to run our gas stove... With luck, I'll be able to patent it and sell rights to use the thing.

    I eat a 3-egg/sharp-cheddar-cheese/1 tortilla breakfast taco most days, Chia seeds on others as a cheap, nutritious filler.

    Mind you, I LIKE beans and rice. Not 7 days a week, though,... and I prefer to include smoked ham hocks in the mix...

    $50/day at Oshkosh... That's class warfare alright...(*note: extreme sarcasm has no font) Getting TO Oshkosh has been pure fantasy, for most of my life.

    DID manage to talk to my all-time favorite ultraligh a/c designer, Robert Hovey (Hovey Whing-Ding, Whing-Ding II, Beta Bird, etc), years ago. He had retired and was into breeding Roses...

    CG has no clue what the bottom is like... Been a homeless vet multiple times, paying child support on $354/mo disability and rented a mailbox to get food stamps. Jeez, I bet the bleach and color kits she uses monthly would buy a month of gasoline for me... Meanwhile, I'm contemplating cutting aircraft-grade sheet Aluninum off the roof of an abandonned RV for my 1st build. - Just Sayin'

    Today's fun exercise...

    1. Make a list of all the girls you know who own a mofo'n parachute. You may put me on the list (see exhibit 3).

    2. Scratch off all girls names who don't have a badass pyrotechic explosive charge attached to same said parachute (leave me on the list; see exhibit 3 again).

    3. Okay, what names are left on your list? Any that are not me, shoot me their email addresses :)

    I don’t know any girl who owns a such a parachute.

    I do know several ladies who fly aerobatics in their own airplanes wearing their own parachutes.

    Well at least this is a decision I can support ;)

    Not including Cirrus owners I can think of a solid dozen. BRS has managed solid sales...

    OK, you have an old ballistic chute. Congratulations... We'll put up a statue of you in the park.

    Why are you always so upset with us trying to make sure you don't use it?
