Re: Oshkosh 2019

Plane is going very slow right now. That pesky work thing having to pay the bills keeps getting in the way. Plus been to hot to work out in the shop. It's insulated but still sits in the mid 90s on a hot day. 2 or 3 more weeks and it will start cooling off at night and I can get back out there. I've...
