After 11 years, 1060 hrs and many ride given I finally received a $100 finders fee check from Van's. Thank you, Jeff Walker! I must have pushed him over the edge after a flight we took a little while ago. Unexpected money is one of life's little karmic rewards.
If you are lurking here and getting ready to write that big check, be sure to tell Van's about a fellow RVer who took you for a ride or inspired you to build the best kitplane ever. : )
