Hello Guy. Help a newbee out here, please. What do the bungees do, or what are they used for?

You missed a good fly-in at Bastrop, Guy. Please plan to go to the next one. It'll be in November.

Chuck,
It was a simple suspension system. He used it on his unique gyro that was equipped with dual bicycle wheels on each side. Pretty cool looking gyro. As I recall it flew pretty well too. Bill was very nice and interesting guy. I miss seeing him at fly-ins. Maybe someone out there can post a picture of his gyro.
Uncle Bud,
How's it going in retirement? How's Ronda and That Parrot of your's? Tell them we miss them I hope Ya'll are safe during Ivan.
