Default Glad I got to see history

Hey Paul and Louise,

It was a pleasure meeting you guys Wed and Thur at the RV-1 tent. Turned into a great rallying place for other RV'ers. Nice to see Van hanging around a spell or two. He is a man of few spoken words but you could see it on his face. I use to live just North of Portland, OR so I went to Vans a lot to get new parts for the ones I buggered up. I would see him at work a lot but not many words spoken. I thanked him for the RV-8 design that I have. Got to meet the great Pierre Smith, master of the crop duster. What I treat to meet the folks we read about on the forum. Still looking forward to meeting Dan Horton some day to thank him for fiberglass tips, etc. Anyhow, the RV-1 tent was a great idea and a great place to rest those barking dogs after walking on them all day. Thanks for letting me help Paul and Ernie push the -1 to get fuel. They made me steer at the back with the rudder. My leg muscles are still recovering. Cheers.

Default Another thanks

I would also like to thank Paul and Louise (and all others envolved with the RV-1) for the wonderful hospitality at the tent. I was there for one day (drove over with my Dad -- was in Orlando for Spring Break with the family), and they were just great.

It really is neat having a tent like that where VAF (errr...... people who build Vans Aircraft) can go and meet/chat with each other. I know you guys put some long hours in manning the tent (though a lot of fun I'm sure).

Is the 1/tent going to be at Oshkosh? I think that might be a dumb question given the Vans honoring? Thanks again and nice BSing with you Paul. Dave
