Default 46 to go to 5,000

almost sold her a few years ago but couldn't part with her. felt much better to do some upgrades and keep what i felt so comfortable with. i love this plane and where it has brought me over the past 18 years. hope to pass the 5,000 mark and keep on going till.......... fly your bird, these planes are the best.

Mercy, Ed... When do you plan to share your cloning (and currency printing) technology with the rest of us?

Default Never thought I'd say this

- but it was a strange year where Lorri and I never seemed to find time for a getaway for two, and lots of my spare time was spent building vs flying.

4.6 hrs (sic) in all of 2017.

If only my plane was in my backyard where I could access it anytime. /sarcasm/ At this rate my Lycoming will last forever if it doesn't rust.

The idea that I spent half my flight hours this past year getting a BFR or chasing a Russian away from my fly-in is quite disturbing. Even more so is the realization that I spent probably five to seven hours mowing the runway for every hour I spent aloft this year. This has got to change in 2018!

Turbo,

You better contact Oshkosh registration to get the "This plane has flown more than 5000 hours" prop badge.

I remember seeing you there & they said it didn't exist.

Congratulations on hitting the upcoming 5k mark!
You need to cross that mark doing something special.
