Thanks for the offer! But - like I said in my initial post I'm in the daydreaming / planning phase right now. Also, I weigh 225 and push 230 some times though I really want to get that back down to 190.It appears the closest PRA Chapter is in Anahauc Texas, about 400 miles for you. They are a very active Chapter; and an Instructor is available in the area. The National PRA fly-in in Mentone Indiana is July 19-23 2016. You can check it out at "www.PRA.org".
I will be there, and if (1) you don't weigh more than 200ish (2) I will give you a ride in the rear seat of the Dominator! Catching a ride can be a long waiting challenge at the fly-ins. Or if you come through middle Tennessee, I will give you a ride at my home base. Dickson, Tn (M02) mike-zero-two. I am 40 miles west of Nashville. You have a standing offer.
The same goes for your wife!
1. pay for daughter's October wedding
2. replace wife's car (200k miles on it right now)
3. get a motorhome for traveling to see the kids
4. pay off the house
5. get a gyroplane
I don't know if I'll even make it to number 4 at this point hwell:
