Default DFW visit in July

Hi guys. Seems I posted this in the southern region instead of here.

Am an RV8 owner from down under attending the CAE Sim centre in Dallas early July for a few weeks, just wondering if there are any RV drivers in the area?
Thanks.

I'm surprised you haven't had any responses.

VAF central is 25 miles from DFW. There's plenty of activity here.

Perhaps ask again on arrival.

I'm not from the area but I know that there's an -8A at Hicks Airfield just west of Fort Worth. I bought my RV-14 kit off of him. My impression has been that there's not a large percentage of VAFers that pay attention to regional forums.

Going for a new type? Did my LJ45 recurrent there (at their satellite facility next to the terminals) in May.

Default North Texas RVs

SabreFlyr may be on to something... try reposting in the 'General Discussion'
area instead of the regional thread.

North Texas has to be in the top two or three areas of the largest concentration of RV's of any place in the US maybe the world.

I have an 8 based Very close to the "Vans Air Force" world headquarters

Send me a pm... Maybe we can get together. I have very few days off in early July so that I have the end off to go to Oshkosh
