Hello, Rod!


I'm sure this laser thing is a global thing.  Where there's technology used for good, there's someone, somewhere using it for bad, also.  Very sad!

BTW ... there's no mud in Oshkosh right now! :)

The temperature is -23°C ... with the wind ... -36°C!  I'm longing for AirVenture weather, but with drier conditions!

Have a great day!

Brrr - sounds like good weather for the skiplane fly-in, as long as you've got some snow as well.
