Well, I really hate to admit it but we got our calendar dates all skrewed up and spent this past long weekend at Distant Drums. When we got there, they couldn't find our reservation and that's when we found out we were too early. We couldn't change our work schedules so we stayed. Mike - wish we had known you guys were in Cottonwood because we spent a day there just hanging out and going through the stores and eateries. It would have been great to connect with you guys again. I'm going to try and come up for the day on Saturday so just let me know where you'll be. The all you can eat fish fry on Friday night at the casino wasn't half bad.

Hi Jimmy;

Good to see you can still throw a hammer and turn a wrench, or are you just the supervisor? Will miss you in Quartzsite this year.
We are in Savannah, moving slowly south, then turning west after December 18th. Expect to touchdown in Q towards the end of January and spend time with the gang.
Enjoy California.

Hey Jim,
We hope you are doing well.... be sure to tell Min to let us know if she needs anything here. Any good RV Parks nearby just in case we need to get away?

There is a RV park right here on the Castle Airport.I think it is $25 per night with hook up's and $15 dry. It is run by the airplane museum.
Here is one of the C-130 Prop's I am working on right now.I am the only person in this hanger.Kind of like Mogollon campground I am all by my self.Even my dog Lucy would not come.

I thought you had a big trailer but it doesn't look so big next to that hanger. Isn't there room for you to park it inside?

I vote for Hangerdocking.
