    Yep. That's a pretty good price for the hill kicker, but there not as good as what I've built. They are a good place to start though.

    I'm actually finishing up another one now for a smaller person, and plan on making more. (if you're interested )

    Kind of hard to get "Coop" and "Old Goat Lover" mixed up isn't it?

    I am planning to leave mid MO Saturday morning about 6:00 and head for NW Ar. Be riding one of those beautiful 96 purple and white DR650s. Be doing a lot more hwy than gravel. Plan to stop at War Eagle mill then head to Oark. Probably camp at Haw creek or Fairview. Plan to ride Push Mountain road Sunday and then head home. Looking forward to seeing some things I haven't seen before.

    Howdie earlybody! How are you FF's all doing.......other than a sore shoulder, purple leg, puffie foot, and ace bandage, that is.......

    Here's a linky to a guy that's writing about some of the chit I've been doing : http://tour.cafb29b24.org/

    I've flown the B29 from Addison, TX to Mobile, Tallahassee, Daytona, Lakeland, and back through Tallahassee and Mobile to Addison. Did three low passes at the Pensacola Naval Air Station and the Naval Aviation Museum on the way home :evil

    Last weekend while you guys were working up a sweat, I was doing the same as I flew the 29 from Addison to Lexington, KY and gave rides for three days. It gets damn hot in that airplane on the ramp! Got to spend some time with one of the three (out of sixty original) living Doolittle Raiders. You meet the coolest people flying a 29!

    Miss you batrastards!

    Good to hear from you Mikey. Hey, we were sitting around the table at WR talking about what we were going to do with all the extra manpower gained from not having to pick up the PigBoat.

    We missed ya, our backs didn't.

    Mikey, I really missed the picture you would have made with all the dust this year. You would have made an awesome photo subject this year....

    Sure glad you are getting to do what you are & are sharing with us....... I get really breathless & thinking what having that many cu in's thundering under your hand in those wonderful machines must feel like.... [​IMG]

    You are one lucky guy not only gettng to fly that old girl around, but meeting one of the Doolittle Raiders also. Great video of your perfect take off. The old girl likes to use a lot of realestate before you get to rotate, up into the wild blue. I bet you are very proud to be one of the few getting to take her out for her weekend jauntys.

    Thanks for sharing with us.
