God loves me. I mean he really, really loves me.

Honest-to-God gospel truth I kid you not. This is the surprise that was waiting to greet me at CUB airport this sunny Sunday afternoon as arrived and off-loaded my Mohawk Yamaha gyrocopter upon returning home to CUB airport after a super FANTASTIC and PERFECT weekend of fun, flying, brotherhood, eats, drinks, TONS of laughs (I was crying from laughing Saturday night), good-natured ribbing, aMAZING flying (HOT DAMN RON AWAD IS BACK IN THE SADDLE OF A DOMINATOR AND TEARING UP THE SKIES AGAIN like he never left for a day!!!!), WOWOWOWOW hats off to Barry Thigpen!!!!! cant' say enough good things about him, and oh-such-great great gals for oh-so-many great reasons. And that's all I'm going to say about that. Care for a choc-o-lat? Moving along...

Now let's be clear, dear reader: I'm single, she's 18, it's all above-board and legal. There's more, there's video, and...

...that's all I'm going to say about that.

This is the sexy model awaiting Greg Spicola when he got home.

BTW, I finally got the rotors back on at some point...

Thank you, once again, to Barry Kroplin & family for your great hospitality, and unending humor.

And thank you to each and every one of you wild and crazy guys at Barnstormer's May 2021 for being my friend.

God loves me. He really, really loves me. I know this, cuz I have all of you, you wild and crazy monkeys, to enjoy and share this life's greatest fortunes and treasures with. :giggle:

PS: The new avatar accurately indicates what is seemed like to me as I took off yesterday with 3g of 100LL. In truth, I could have climbed much steeper and maintained 45 mph IAS, but with yet another 1700 ERPMs left on the tach I did not have the balls.

Old age and respect for death? Dunno, but I am plenty thrilled with the way she runs - enough to keep the bugs hittin' my pearly whites, LOL!

Giddyap!

The guy in the first post I have no idea. 😂

The man in the 3rd post is a
Carolina Barnstormer .
Cross country gyro pilot .
Logged more flight hrs than anyone could dream of using the same 914 rotax engine for 20 years
without a engine out 👍
He contributes quality content to this forum 👍
He is a great man and our friend .
Also Highly respected and loved by many others in the gyro community.
He is the real deal and a Awesome person 😎

I’m sure Greg is glad to have him visit his home.

This was intended as fun, not disrespect, but appears you find it offensive and I should delete the thread.

Yes? No?

Rodney - is this offensive to you?

Greg,
In short yes . Some of our wives read the forum and took offense to the thread also.
We are glad you had a great time at our Fly-in.
We all enjoyed having you attend and demonstrate the performance of your gyro.
The Fly-in was a blast and everyone had a great time.
We hope to have many more in the future and hope it continues to grow as a place for good clean aviation family fun.
The thread doesn’t really fit the
Carolina Barnstormers Aviator Groups brand.
We do not want the images and inferences to reflect on to the Carolina Barnstormers.
