Quick update.

Terry and I drove to Wisconsin for 10 days. I spent four days at Oshkosh, and she visited family in Green Bay. There were a huge number of RVs there, reported as over 400. I looked at a lot of fabulous aircraft, and especially studied cockpit storage options and canopy skirt sealing ideas in RV-8s. I found a few good ideas that I will steal, and implement after I get flying.

I met up with a number of other RV-8/8A builders on Tuesday and Thursday, at the Theater in the Woods. It was good to meet up with several people that I have communicated with online.

We got back from Wisconsin on Sunday, and I spent Monday at the hangar finishing off some loose ends. The final inspection is scheduled for Saturday. I’ll be leaving for Wichita in a few minutes, getting back Friday night.

After the inspection, there will be a wait for the paperwork to arrive so I can fly.
