    Louisiana-Arkansas Gyro Event

    The ride was great. I loved it. Thanks Rudy! I didn't get any video, and I only snapped 3 pictures from the air. Nothing really good though. I'm not a good photographer. :-P The only video I shot the whole trip is on Bob's camera.

    Louisiana-Arkansas Gyro Event

    Rudy, Glenn said the trip was too far for him. He put in a decent amount of work on his 'Bee though. Haven't heard from Mike yet. Yeah, Rich, my plans are set now. :-) I'm gonna blow every penny I have next summer. PPL, gryo training, and start building something. I'm thinking somewhere along...
