Mark,
Got the pictures messed up, was trying to re-size them & got confused.
The wife said it was hard taking pictures of you since you blended into the background.

He said he liked it, he has some fixed wing time.
It was a cold & very bumpy ride.[/QUOTE

I called John about 730am. He was in Gonzales already. We had so much rain during the week. John said come on down Mark its not even freezing. Its only 31 degrees outside. I didn't have the heart to tell him that is below freezing, so I hooked up to my gyro , got stuck in the yard trying to get to the driveway from my back yard and then caught hell from John for showing up with a dirty gyro. The truck threw mud on it from the tires.
I would have missed a great flying experience if John had not convinced me to bring my gyro and a thermal suit.

I can't argue with the truth! I think you resized me in the first picture. If not, I gotta lose some weight!!

Mark, freezing is a frame of mind, not a number:D.I don't know why you worry about freezing weather, I know one of the many gyros you own must have a set of skis on it. I am glad you brought your gyro too, it was the first time i actually flew with other gyros since i flew with steve while soloing.Yup, good times.
