Hello,

I'll be travelling around the South tip of Florida (Miami, Key-west, Naples) in the last 2 weeks of August. Deviation towards Wauchula possible, although during the week.

Who lives down South or not too far North so we can meet up for a cool drink?

Kai.
 
Gyro Kai, If you are driving down to Key West you will drive right by my house at mile marker 23 on Cudjoe Key . At 23 MM turn left , go 250 ft. turn right, second house on left. You are welcome to stop by to see my gyro and have a cool one. Have a safe trip.

I am "in" where ever you are going to be :) Just let me know and we can hook up für eine krügel ..... oder zwei :)

Kai,

I'm in Bradenton (just north of Sarasota on the west coast). Unfortunately, I'll be back at work by then (I'm a teacher) and probably can't get to Wauchula on a week day. But when it gets closer give me a call and we'll see.

Wow,

you guys are amazing (although Chuck's evil chuckle stille echos on).
This is a set trip, but it includes 3 nights in Naples, so I can cut short here and head North, which I'll be planning now. I could go up to, say, Wimauma, find a place there and return next day to Naples.

So, Jim, I'd love to see you on the way to Key West.
Joe, love to see you in person one day, maybe not this time.
Gabor, if we could somehow meet, that would be awesome.
Mike, to see, where the Dominators breed would be fantastic.
Rick, I'm sort of passing your home, but have no idea when. So I would try to contact you.
Needless to say that all consumption, beverages and food, are on me.

Looking forward to see you all. If anything flies with rotors, that would be the cream topping.

Looking forward even more to the trip.

Thanks,
Kai.

Oh man, so close but still so far away.
The last two weeks of August, I'll try and blast out there for a day but it's going to be tough with all that's going on right now and Mentone but I'd love to meet you Kai. Your one of my favorite rotorheads!!

Kai, if you are able to visit RFD in Wimauma, I’ll meet you there.

I’d let you fly my gyro if it was a public use airport but Ernie’s strip is a privately owned airfield and liability concerns make that impossible.

In any case, if Ernie has recovered from Mentone, I imagine he’ll give you a ride in a 2-place Dominator.

If this happens let me know the day!!!
Ernie and Chuck are two of my heroes. :party:

I can't believe it, you guys rock!!!

I cannot believe this is going to be true! Of course you are my hero, too, Chuck.

And John, crossing the continent to meet me, I'm not sure I can live up to the expectation. And for sure this is not going to be last time I'm in the US, now that I know so many more wonderful people there.

I'll be in Wimauma August 25-26, how is that?

I'd love to try a non HTL machine (as you know, I'm Central-Europe-impaired). But legally I can only go in a 2-seater as a pupil, I guess. SPLs are not recognizes outside their countries of origin afaik.

Oh, Stan, I can drive night and day, but I don't think I'll make it to your place, I'll try harder next time. My wife also wants to see the Keys.

You guys are great,

see you soon,

Kai.

Ok, I walked down Lincoln Rd Mall and Ocean Drive, swam in the warm Ocean, rode an airboat, tickled an alligator and had a marvellous time. Heading South now.
