kclo4, I sent you a pm. Doesn't seem to be many 14-builders in the Albuquerque area. I know of one guy at the Midvalley airport that is getting close to first-flight, another lady at the Moriarty airport that has bought the emp kit but hasn't made much progress from there, and me.
I split my discretionary time between flying my 180 and building my RV and find that that fits my needs. I'm building a slow-build RV by myself so that is making it take longer, but I have no regrets. There are a lot worse ways to spend your time than in your workshop making slow, but steady progress on a really cool project.
