Default How to Get Your New RV12 Home

That was a big problem I had, and was rescued right here on VAF! I thought many would probably like to share the adventure of getting one home, enjoy!.

Thanks for sharing, really enjoyed following along and has me itching to see the country similarly when mine is done.

I too agree, there are some strange people on the planet when they have a window seat on an airliner and keep the shade shut, i just cringe. What a shame.

No, have sold it. The great photos and the narrative was all provided by Bob Bogash.

Don, what about your other RV-12, I don't see it in your signature. Just curious after following your build and blog over the years.

I really enjoyed Bob's story, quite a journey! And what a great thing to do for a fellow RV-12 owner, fantastic. It took me a few minutes to realize what I was reading, but once I figured out that Bob was basically ferrying a plane to Texas for you (and that it happened a year ago), it made it even better. So he was actually flying over my house (I live in NorCal) in May, 2017 about the same time I was doing my first flight! Kudos to Bob and thanks for sharing Don!

Thumbs up Killing it

Bob (I hope he sees this),

Well thanks for killing an hour of my morning. I figured "I'll just take a quick peek", then got sucked into the story and pictures.

You write in a very engaging style, and your pictures are great.

But above all else, I really appreciated being able to share your thought processes as you made the trip.

There is a lot for me to learn there, and so it ended up being time well spent.

Thanks for sharing this Don!

Default Good Stuff.

Thanks for sharing Don, and thanks for your blog Bob! Thoroughly enjoyed it. I too lost an hour or so reading. No matter its a bleak rainy afternoon here in Melbourne Oz. Too cold to be building planes in the workshop.
