    Great shots!! Can't wait to get back down there.
    I wonder if that's one of the A-10s that were at the Travis AFB air show this past weekend

    Edit: Nvm, just checked my phone and it's not the same ones

    Spent a few hours this afternoon working on my friend's Quickie in Bentonville. He hasn't been getting full RPM out of it, and today we removed a microfilter in the fuel system. I had to leave for Dallas afterwards, but I just got a text saying that after cleaning it up in an ultrasonic cleaner the problem seems to be solved. :woot:

    I'll be up there Monday. Maybe he'll be doing a few low passes at full speed.

    I think he's planning to bring it back to Dallas soon so I don't know if it'll still be there by Monday. They were planning today, but the issue hadn't been resolved yet. You might get lucky though! It sure is a neat little plane

    Yeah. Looks like a lot of fun, but two up must be tight.

    The seating position is SO comfy. It's like you're in a LazyBoy recliner fully stretched out. I said he better not ever fly tired because it would be so easy to fall asleep in that thing, haha. Both of us were in it comfortably, but we aren't very wide dudes. :laughing:

    With a name like that hopefully it’s nothing to do with aviation.

I just stopped and bought a new Taco, and totally changed my life. Been wheeling, and expedition camping all over this great nation reconnecting with my family. Thanks to T world and a different lifestyle for keeping me from losing my shit. COOL thread I’ll be watching. 0458194E-EAB5-4116-9DDA-8CB170C50BED.jpg Looking forward to going back to Moab in October. We have 4 MN trucks coming down third week in October.

    I am yet to make it to Sun n Fun. Came close this year but it still didn’t happen. Wheels are turning in my head for Oshkosh though. That was a blast last year

    I recognize that place. KORL. Looks like an Orlando Aviators plane.

    Spur of the moment decision to take the Cardinal up to Minneapolis to watch the NCAA Championship. Departing in 10 hours! Got a connection for a private hangar since the FBOs are all booked up and not accepting any arrivals. I love it when aviators help each other out, if we didn't find a place to keep the plane we wouldn't have been able to make it happen.
