There are 2 theories to arguing with a woman ... neither works.

Ed Harvey Everything is in storage while I build a 44 X 44 hanger and slightly smaller house next to Chesapeake Ranch Airport in Lustby, MD. This retirement is great In ` 99 I did about i800 miles of the Appalachian Trail (Georgia to New Hampshire ) with my twin brother, Jim. I did a lot of volunteer work on the cabins and shelters prior to the hike. That's where we learned how to hike light. I've also been to Costa Rica hiking , climbing old volcanoes, snorkeling, etc. Last year was an interesting trip hiking trails around Tokyo, Kyoto and the southern coast of Honshu. I moved to get closer to water, get some sailing and maybe even learn how to fly a small airplane. Thanks for your work.

Bear Beck Wanted to thank you for putting my chicken scratches in the TARPA. I remember flying with Ted Herford as a 2nd Officer and when not there to cut hair I got to listen to Earl Jinette pointing out imaginary flights of military jets to Ted at 12 o'clock low, with Ted's reply "I've got 'em". What a great pair. Between Earl and Jimmy Jones I learned more about the plane than that engine instructor at KC who used to say "visualize " 38 times an hour. Just reminiscing....BEAR

John Boyce Madame and I are doing just fine. I'm recovering from hernia surgery, but that's a relatively trivial matter compared to some of the things they do to the human body these days. I'll be back to flying/soaring as soon as this spell of bad weather moves out. I have to get some practice hours in before the Regional Soaring Contest mid—June. Wally Moran and I are flying team in that event. I' m still instructing glider pilots and flying the Pawnee and Super Cub tow planes for our soaring club. We lost access to the last soaring airport in Connecticut and, facing the prospect of disbanding, we bit the bullet and bought a small airport thirty miles south of Albany. It's working out OK so far, but if you know of anybody in the area who might be interested, we could use more members. It's a great sport, good people, a beautiful site, and WE OWN IT!
