Dwayne REALLY helped me out! He swapped out the cooling unit on my Dometic refrigerator. He even delayed his departure from CL to do so.

My frig crashed on the first morning I was there and I had a replacement delivered to my site. I'll forever be in debt to you, Dewayne.

Uh Steve, canoes are paddled, not rowed, but that's just splitting hairs, I suppose. How many years since you were in a canoe? -- on water, that is.

Hey Mel!

You already know you were missed. More cuttin' on your poor knee? Geesh, I hope the doc got it right this time. There is a reason they call it "practice". I'm coming up on the 1 year anniversary of my knee job and am SO glad to have that over and done with.

As for traveling to the Pacific Northwest -- the weather up there is rainy until July 4th, then it is marvelous thru Labor Day. I spend summers at my daughter's place in Seattle.

Remember to pack your laptop so we can harass you.

RC helicopters are way harder to fly and very dangerous as well ... Google RC helicopter fatalities, these planes fly pretty easy but, you still sweat bullets when you are trying to land your $200.00 airplane and not break it in the process, there is a lot that can go wrong, and it usually does ......

Jeff I have a good friend that flies RC planes. He had a second controller that was connected by a cord to the main controller where he could take control if a student was about to crash. Saved a lot of down time and dollars. That was the only way I would fly His planes was with him right there, he had several and lots of money invested. Have fun!

Hi Dave,

If we can ever get our rainbows to land in the same place at the same time again I'd enjoy having you along for a flight. I also had a Corsair that was wire controlled when I was much younger and it crashed way to easily. RC is lots of fun but, wind conditions can really fool you, and the plane and radio can out fly your vision and getting it back can be a challenge. I fly my Cub on basic flight I have yet to try intermediate or advanced ..... Someday ..... maybe.

Cheers !!!

Depends on the size I've seen the 600 and larger series and I think I'd be worried just being near one that a professional flies! I've been messing with the much smaller ones for the last couple of years and have followed the tragedies that have occurred with the larger units. Even one of the most well respected hobbyist got nailed by his own heli and died so I agree, they can be quite dangerous.

Hi Carl,

Size is always a contributing factor in the amount of damage done to be sure. There is a micro Cub that can almost fly itself and its half the price of my sport Cub, and I may well get one do I can fly circles around the MH, its great practice, it doesn't hardly compare to the thrill of driving on the edge of a Jeep trail but, with the plane I'm the one that's nervous, and not Marcia screaming that I'm to close to the edge ..... hahahahaha.

Hey Tim,

Yep that's how I learned, I have a DX6 controller and its all wireless, you bind the controllers together and the teacher can take over with the touch of a button, or give the student the plane with a touch of a button as well, without all those pesky wires getting in the way. What's really uncomfortable is the teacher taking control and saying, " you're making me nervous I'm taking control " and you thinking you were doing pretty good .... lol ...... Not !!!!!!!

Jeff
