    I plan to be there this year, Ralph (me and the dog). Now that I'm retired, I could come up early from our new home in WYO and help with any setup---mowing Heller, whatever. Pete

    Great shots---brought back many memories! Like the fog popping up out of the bush and the constant nagging in your mind asking "what's going to happen next?" What a grand adventure!

    You've heard these types of stories before: installed 150 hp on my PA-12 and couldn't hold airplane stationary during run-up---even with double puck Cevelands. While sumping fuel in Whitehorse,...

    In my opinion, the lower baggage mod is a must. I did it during the total rebuild of the airplane, and with the fabric removed it wasn't that big of a deal. When you get rid of the bellcrank and...
