Yes Chuck, the helicopters were a big plus, enjoyed your demonstration of the Mesquito, very cool bird. Hopefully the PPC guys will join us again next year, glad we were able to have at least one.

She's a sweetie...your a lucky guy.

The location I was trying to remember we were talking about near Seoul was Nami Island:

It was a great trip...Soohyun and I had lunch in Brenham, then on to Anahuac through the uncontrolled corridor between Hobby and GWB.

Wish we could have stayed longer! Maybe next year we can stay overnight Saturday night...felt wayyyy too soon to leave when we did.

Made it back to Austin in 2 hours flat! Arrived 15 minutes after sundown.

Still didn't get my fix....flew to Fredericksburg the next morning with Soohyun for breakfast.

She really enjoyed meeting you guys!

I'll tell her the name of the island, I bet she'll remember it.

The chow-down Friday night.

Bonzer enjoyed the meal. That's Dan Carr's Golden Butterfly that Bonzer's admiring.
