Phase I Done!
Yes, website updates have been sparse these days. I've had a few people write me e-mails concerned that I haven't called them, etc. Well, the truth is that between getting the Phase I testing done and getting ready for Tyler's arrival there hasn't been a whole lot of time to update the website.
Anyway, Phase I is now done! I finished it up today.
I took this picture from the Samsung Blackjack (my smartphone). It actually takes pretty decent pictures. Anyway, I dodged these little showers all day long. It was easier just to climb up to 10,500 and go over them. :-) This picture is of Athens, GA.
Later I came back over the house and Jaime got this picture of me circling overhead from the back yard. Unless you have built one of these airplanes, you will probably not be able to understand the feeling of accomplishment involved here. I'm flying overhead, in an airplane built in the garage 15 feet from where Jaime is standing as she took this photo.
All the blood, sweat and tears shed in that garage, the drilled and smashed fingers, the aching back and feet, the tired ears, the sleepless nights, the neglect of friends, the ruined clothes and the expense were oh so worth it.
KEEP...POUNDING...THOSE...RIVETS! Just remember that it WILL really fly one day!
