    Work continues on the cleanup. Gene deserves several pats on the back. Or buy him some beer. Gracie and Hunter have been working hard.

    Warning: In the unlikely event the offshore winds change, be very careful coming in the main entrance, as it has not been checked for nails and screws and such. Don’t run over any pieces of wood, because even very small pieces can have nails in them. There were a LOT of nails and screws in the shade structure. Some of them were loose, and came out, and some of them were tight, and stayed in the wood.

    We need to have a lot of people walk over that area and check for nails and screws. That’s a nice tire you’ve got there. It would be a shame if something happened to it.

    I would recommend driving past the main entrance up to the entrance behind the Gator container.

    Big thanks Tim and Gene!

    Maybe if someone has a couple of hours and a metal detector (or a super powerful magnet) they could sweep the parking lot with it?

    Thank you Gene and Tim.

    I brought my rolling magnet this morning and went over the entire parking area once. I’ve left the magnet in the LZ bin for anyone with some extra time to use it. There is a handle on the main bar that you lift to release the metal you have collected.

    Sandy, may you never get another flat tire driving for all us crazy pilots!

    Unexpectedly, I was rewarded with an awesome high altitude switch day flight in the afternoon that was definitely not in the plans this morning.

    Awesome! Thanks Mario.

    Yep, thanks, Mario. That’s very handy. I dragged it around a little and still picked up a variety of screws and nails.

    I suspect we’ll be doing that for some time before it doesn’t come up with anything.
