And we're still on here (KLVN) for the last stop before OSH. Anyone who wants to stop by, we're planning an unofficial/impromptu (dependent on weather, etc..) gathering. Friday afternoon around 6:00 PM at the EAA Chapter 25 hangar, KLVN (hangar is on India lane, end of the row nearest the runway). I'll buy some refreshements and some food...and the weather looks like it'll only be partially miserable!

Most of the week, it should be at Van's tent, but it will do a stint on the Square on Monday, and I think it has an appearance scheduled at the homebuilder's Hangar on Tuesday. It seems to be very much in demand....

Whew, hot out there today, but RV-1 got to T-ville (8U8) around 1630. We had a pretty good for a Hot Montana weekday afternoon. I think at one point I counted 10 RV's besides the Vans bunch. It was fun to use the SPOT tracker to judge when they would arrive. When I figured they were 10 minutes out we wandered out on the Ramp and right on que here comes 4...what 4 RV's? that lead one the RV-14. Nope just an RV-7A of Jeff B, from Washington sneaking in. Right on his tail was the Polished yellow Teenflight RV-12, followed THE ONE(yes Joe we got the landing on video) and bringing up the rear was Red RV-12 factory ship.

The guys were a little tired, hungry and ready for a little break. Full tummies and topped off fuel, they headed for Billings for an overnight stop.

Thanks Friends of RV-1 for the opportunity to be part of history.
