    After I drink I stagger pretty well. Does that count?

    JB weld? meh.

    I had a fairly large hole in my Ford Van gas tank right in the back in the middle. I rubbed bar soap on it about 2-3 times a year, no problems. Drove the van for 10 years that way. Figured a fix-it-guy like you would know that one.

    Oh yeah, I know that trick, as I said, ive grown tired of messing with it, ive got another generator already, just want to get rid of this one.

    Id braze it, or weld it if I wanted to fix it, tired of smelling like gasoline all the time anymore, aint no body got time for that.

    Sheet metal screw with a Viton O-ring will seal it.

    its a rusty spot about the size of a nickel, and its perforated with many tiny holes.

    I figured it was worth $100 to someone, but I have been wrong, before, often.

    Sounds like an ideal candidate for a five gallon auxiliary tank conversion to provide a longer run time. We'll worth a hundred bucks.

    We wouldn't let Ted sit at our table so Shelley felt sorry for him and sat in a booth with Ted.

    Kris is recovering nicely from his get off but he is still wearing a brace on his wrist. He demonstrates the entirety of his mobility for us below:

    Please answer in the form of a question:
    If you were to take your motorcycle for a ride with the sole intent of small game hunting or target practice this is the legal/legally accepted method of carrying rifle and pistol.

    Howdy gents. Looks like I missed a good swill. Won't be the last I am sure. I have to study a new aircraft, going to Flight Safety in Lafayette, LA for 4 days and then 2 days at my company HQ flying the aircraft and taking a check ride. Will be flying the 407 now. It is a hot rod so should be fun. Still not as comfortable as an A-star, and has complicated FADEC system to boot. At least it starts itself.

    I am also studying for the ATP, will be spending a week in Denton, TX in March getting that done. Will be flying the little civilian version of what the Army called the TH-55. That will be fun working a manual throttle again. Haven't done that in years.

    Maybe in Spring I can go for a moto ride. Maybe.

    Later
