Default Keeping a weather eye out...

a sure way to make it go MVFR or worse is for Stormy to schedule a fly-in. NOAA says 90% chance of TSTMS Friday, but otherwise a hot 10 day forecast with very low chance of precip.

Ingalls Field (KHSP) is having their annual Wings and Wheels event about 8 miles to the north of us this Saturday. Might be a two-for-one opportunity for some. Last time I attended, I was ramp-checked for the first time in my 20 year aviation career. Ended fine, but is not on my repeat-experience aspirations list. Just FYI.

Pork butt #1 (of two) went in the crock pot this morning. Love the aroma of BBQ in the making Lorri is busying herself helping me get the place ready for visitors. She made the Sam's Club run yesterday. Last night we sanded and stained some of the porch rocking chairs.

Default Looks like a dozen planes so far, and counting

Might have to mow some overflow parking

Lorri would like to hear if anyone is planning to bring a side dish -that is totally optional, but knowing about it ahead of time will help her gauge tomorrow's grocery shopping trip. We don't want anyone to leave for home less than stuffed. Pipe up if you're bringing anything.

Particularly looking for some prime Russian caviar

I just baked some fresh picked red raspberry cobbler today & am planning to bring it with me. I tried to hold out on the baking but as ripe as the berries were, there was no holding back. If you have vanilla ice cream, we'll have desert covered.

OK, this complicates things. To heck with the official start/end time of the event, I want to know when the Raspberry Cobbler will arrive!

Default Noah, an Arc, & Cumulus Nimbus

Hi Bill, Noah is doing a heck of a business down here in ATL renting out his Arc------ Every afternoon----late.---- I "would" just plan to fly home, late afternoon---early evening, but if the cumulus nimbus and their anvils are out there again, then yeah, I'd like to take you up on the 1st dibs on a bed.

And then blast off Sunday AM, before Noah wakes up.

We will gussy-up the guest quarters and fluff the mattress for ya, in that case.

Maybe you can talk anther VAFer or two into keeping you company so you don't get bored. We've got three beds up there.
