The other good news is the rally will also be my retirement party. The paper work went in today. My last day at work will be Thursday the 3rd. the day we arrive for the rally. I guess I will be on leave for my last day. 38 years 6 months and 28 days are enough. I have take leave for those 28 days as the retirement is computed in 30 day increments so I would lose them. I have until the 3rd to use them and I will.

Great planning Jim.

I spent my retirement day at a Diesel rally in Montana, a long way from work in NJ.

Congrats Jim! I can't think of a better way to spend your last day at work than surrounded by food, friends and aluminum!

Congratulations Jim! I envy you and will be glad to give you a pat* on the back and a personal congrats when we see you at Topsail on Saturday!

*I started with a slap on the back, but thought your back would probably be sore by the time we arrive!

Thanks to all. I sure don't want to have a sore back trying to stir the Jambalaya.

Maybe everyone will pat easy so it won't be too sore. I'd hate to see it too sore to stir that pot of Jambalaya. It sure was good as I remember...looking forward to some more.

She may only be rated for one of those huge aircraft that drop the fire retardant then she could take the entire rally for a flight.
Jim,
It is a possibility. Cost awould be about $4 per attenedant. Even though I have a commercial pilots certificate, I cannot recieved direct compensation. FAA rules.

I would not be able to do a retardant drop yet. I fly air attack. I am trying to get into Tankers next season and the one after that and the one after that until someone hires me!

One complication. I may not be able to attend. I am job hunting and if I get a new one it wil be around the begining of the year.

Oh Michelle say it isn't so! I was really looking forward to your being at the rally. Not that I don't wish you all the success in the world for a new job but you know what I mean.

I am more tha willing to contribute, I don't think the FAA will mind if we buy you a meal or a tee shirt. Good luck with the tankers, what a career.

We could have a drawing for a door prize that all the pilots who flew over the rally taking photos were entered.
Mix them all up, and pull out a winner.
Imagine the odds.

Hope you can make it Michelle, but also wish you luck with the job search. Been there done that with the timing of a job start and vacation plans. It will all work out for the best whichever way it works out.
