    A lot of you have been around long enough remember when Chris and April Nesin rebuilt the actual PA-11 that Rinker and Kern Buck flew across country that was the inspriation for Rinker's book "Flight of Passage". They have more great pictures and stories from this experience than can be told in one evening, but it is sure to be a good one!

    Lots of fond memories to do with the rebuild of the Flight of Passage Cub and the trip Chris and April took it on. One of my favorite stories on the subject involves a sawzall, something about a credit card and a huge learning experience. I know Tom had a hoot on the part of the trip he accompanied them.

    Really cool to hear from Rinker. I just started Oregon Trail and the first chaper explains a lot about him and these types of adventures.
