I was not planning to fly there. I only live about 20 minutes away, and my hanger is 20 minutes in the opposite direction. However, if there is going to be some kind of event where they try and gather as many Decathlons as possible, I am definitely up for that.
I used to enjoy fly-ins. My last three events soured me - at two I found kids in uniforms moving my Cub by the tail brace wires so they could put a more important antique in my spot (a Stearman).
The third, and last - I was in a Stearman with engine running and a taxi clearance when some super self-important folks pulled a B-25 out, blocking me, and proceeded to do whatever it takes to get a B-25 ready. They were simply more important than me.
Have fun. I will be flying.
I'm advised my last comment came across as a bit assholish. Sorry Bob, I was trying to make a bad joke about you being an older dude, and those B-25 young'uns being in your way. I suppose would have been funnier if the taxiway had actually been grass. Anyway, no offense intended, and I hope I'm still flying anything 20 years from now, much less upside down!
Not by me - I got a kick out of it. You may color me amused! That is exactly what I did - otherwise I would still be there.
It is really easy to get mis-interpreted on a forum. I get attacked regularly, but so far never here. I had one guy over on the J3 forum tell me I was faking it, that the FAA had no record of my existence, and everybody on the forum hated me. Then he left in a huff and hasn't been heard from since.
