  1. Somebody snagged a photo of Chuck and I ... (and several other WW's at the table behind my left shoulder ... Natops, Pierre, Bard, Chunk and Happy <hiding behind Natops, who is looking far too comfy, LOL> )
  2. Chuck, you certainly set the bar for event coordination and herding of cats in a highly professional manner. If not for Dub's GPS constant "Recalculating!" it would have been flawless! 😄
  3. All I can say is... CRAZY. This Wilga 2000 nicknamed "Draco" has a P&W PT6 turboproip, down-rated through the gearbox for 680 HP. It hits top speed at half throttle at sea level... Has a 160 foot take off at 3,000 lbs gross. And lands in 120 (? I forget the exact number) ... with 300hp of reverse thrust. Cruises at 150 mph at 17k feet with oxygen for pilot and passenger.
  4. I've lived in Minnesota, Georgia, Washington, Germany, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. I've never goten to feel an earthquake. Don't really want to, either.
  5. Topic moved to the IL-2 public forum area. (seemed a better fit here than having the topic get lost in general chit chat)
  6. I'm going to move it to the art area, of you don't mind... Then you can update the attachments. I think they were all made under the old system and didn't carry over correctly.
  7. That's not the version of VR I was expecting... Just sayin'.
  8. Jealous of the V-Tail flights... Mine has been collecting dust recently. Some issue with P3D, crashes every time I start. Really don't want to do the whole rebuild scenario, but I may have to. ((pout!))
  9. Red Flight will have to be under another leader, I'll be at a Twins game.
  10. I've narrowly escaped being stung by a scorpion by the simple expedient of dumping out my boots before I put them on... then screamed like a girl. I've seen black bears, from a distance. One while I was in boy scouts, on a canoe trip into Boundary Waters. We got to sit in our canoes after having fished for dinner, and watched this black bear tear up our camp. He couldn't get at the food bags (suspended from trees), but he sure made a mess of everything at ground level. I've heard cougars (had them come into town a couple times - yes, out here in flat old corn country!) but only once ever saw a wild one, and that was road kill. Couldn't believe what I was looking at beside the road one day, brought the work truck (all 45,000 pounds of it) to a halt and went back to see if that dead thing along the road was actually a cougar. It was. And the county sheriff that showed up about the same time I got to it confirmed it for me. One look at the claws and teeth was all I needed... that thing is a meat shredding machine. Or it might have been, if somebody's vehicle hadn't made it a meat-bag of mush.
  11. Downloaded and installed.
  12. I'm a trucker by trade, so ... yes. (Gives @WWDubya the finger)
  13. Yeah, the "OverHeat" warning only stays on until the engine is spooled up to about 3,000 rpm.
  14. I foolishly spent money on several Saicrap sticks one year. Money was tight, needed to fly, went for low-price. After the fourth one in less than a year I realized I could have bought a good quality setup for less money. After that I've never bought Saicrap gear of any kind. I even turned down a freebie Saicrap stick a friend offered... And he wasn't the least bit offended. So if anyone ever wants a hardware review on anything Saicrap makes (or has made), I'll happily add my opinion. You might be able to guess what that opinion may be.
