Twin Otter buzzing the forest fire lookout tower, filled with leering smokejumpers hoping to catch a sleepy, skimpily clad female lookout on their way to who knows what. Sorry boys, she's with me.

When I was in flight school at the University of Illinois, classmates and I would run outside whenever the P51 Mustang that a local Dr owned would take off. The sound of that Rolls-Royce Merlin V-12 when he powered it up for take off was amazing.

Hi Alf
I like my silence too. Can't say I enjoy the Onan all that much. We sure like our 150 W
Panel and dual sixes. We don't need much.
At Niagara I'll show you my latest concept on filling fresh water tank when there's water in the C.G but not at the site. (Teaser).

Oh man you figured it out, she really likes
It when the transmission funnel I got her flips over and gets her shoes and socks wet. I offered to get her some new rubber boots but can't remember just what she said.

Enough P-51's, Kubota's, one cylinder boat engines and the sounds of silence. The rally is getting close, I just checked and the four loops of campsites at Thomson Causeway are nearly filled. I do not believe all 121 are filled with attendees at the rally but it looks like we will have plenty of company. There are some spots for those of you sitting on the fence. On Saturday we will have an open house on trailers from 12-3. This will be followed by the famous Lugnuts Contest and happy hour, or maybe the other way around. There is a potluck dinner at 5:30. Come for the day, stay in a local motel, bring your tent. It looks like a big showing this year and you will enjoy the comradery.

As long as you've been doing those 12 ounce curls you ought to be prepared any feat of strength. The trick is not putting her all on one roll, you got to have an ace in the hole.
Iowa , look at the wings on that boy, Dave

I would certainly hope your Happy Hour practice is further advanced than you nut twisting practice.
