Flight went great down to here. We'll overnight near Pilot Country Airport to stage for the Team RV escort arrival tomorrow morning. Paul is practicing saying,"Give me 5!"

congrats Louise & Paul.

I think we need to rename IronFlight to "IronButt" - 3 hrs in the RV-1 ?!

First, I want to thank Dan and Pattie for their hospitality once again! We had a great time collecting the RV-1 and getting current with it again.

Th trip down to the Tampa area was aided by great tailwinds, and we made it with a fuel
stop on Cross City. We managed 145 mph ias in the -1, and Mikey cooled fine at those speeds in Escort, sipping fuel.

We arrived at our overnight stop of Pilot Country Airpark, north of Tampa about 1400, and have had a great time showing off the ONE...and enjoying the help of the neighborhood as we replaced a defective alternator on Mikey.

The RV-1 will be arriving at Lakeland about 1000 Monday morning, escorted by Team RV!

Team RV and Paul... the red carpet is already in place and awaiting your arrival. The display area for the RV-1 has been moved slightly from the assigned location (thanks I believe to the Tent guys missing the mark) but it's a much better location - very near the flight line at Homebuilt parking and only a 30-second line-of-sight walk from Van's exhibit. The band and beer truck are also standing-by! See ya in the am.

I can only imagine the emotions of this reunion and the significance of what Van and that airplane have created.

Had a great chat with Dick, Ernie, Paul, Louise, and Joe late this afternoon and got to sit in the RV-1!

Looking forward to a great week!
