A couple pics of the assembly line.







I believe they push 14 boats a day out the door, this one is coming off the line and onto a trailer. Right out the door they drop in some gas and do an hour plus lake trial on the lake in their backyard.

One last look at one of the COOLEST grass runways I've landed on.



The Iphone wasn't able to capture the true view of the mountains poking through the clouds on the way home.







Hope was able to log a couple hours on the way home, why won't any of my kids keep their shoes on!





Trip summary:
-Over 2000 miles
-13.6 flight hours @ 160 KTAS
-108 gallons of fuel
-just under 8 gph
-avg price fuel/gallon $4.05 (20 gallons Mogas)

That's a lot of travel for $438 in gas!

P.S - The shoe thing was always a mystery with my boys also.
