in Elsinore. And Bought it outright. Signed a bunch of the paperwork today. I'm really stoked. Au Revoir, Orange County. This move puts me about half an hour closer to AJX drive time. Elsinore LZ is a short walk. And traffic-wise its probably a better commute to Torrey.
Yes, work is a longer commute now, but cmon! priorities! I'll figure something out...
Super happy right now. That was a long, tough bidding war, even with some falling out of escrow drama (for another bidder), but in the end, when the dust settled, i had it. So yeah, I'm following the lift, and I'm moving..
Is anyone up for flying tomorrow?
Maybe we could get a shuttle van going.
Let me know if you are interested and if we get enough people together, we might be able to run it.
"The Magic Jack Customer you are trying to reach is currently unavailable."
- Does anyone know how often Windy has been off-line since we changed to Magic Jack?
- Does anyone know how often Windy was off-line before we chanced to Magic Jack?
It seems to me that Windy is off-line a lot more these days. We should consider going back to the old system, what ever it was.
Paul Burns is hanging around till the end of the month. He has truckload of North Wings available for demo flights. Call him up to arrange a test drive 509 733 1268.
Our flying season is technically over but we had awesome conditions and so many outstanding pilots at AJX this past weekend; it was amazing. From all over: Washington, Utah, Spain, Canada, NorCal even Fontana. Rad. Bunch of pro PGrs. Zac Majors and friends on the HG side. Cool experience chatting with and learning from the talent in the LZ.
So it really felt like a fly-in or something. We should post-hoc declare that last weekend was a fly-in. Just to get it right.
If you are among those in the LZ who were wondering what the orange flickering light on the 400 launch was, it was indeed a fire.
If anyone has contact with Paul ( Northwing rep ) who is visiting CA and may be stayng at the Ranch...............please have him contact me ref - harness. Thanking you ahead of time for your help.
My wife June and I will be at Marshall this weekend as well as the following. If anyone plans to shuttle up, please let us know. We are game to take turns driving.
Nick & June
