It would be very interesting for someone like me who's working on getting things started in an area where nobody else is doing this (yet) to go and work with a group like that.

I thought exactly the same thing when I went over to Fredericksburg, Texas to hook up with Tim Hutcherson, Jody Prather and Mark Laborteaux (sorry if I butchered the spelling, Mark...)

We had a great time... I learned a BUNCH! My idea here was to get guy with a diverse range of equipment together, and see what does the job best...

Obviously, the more guys we have, the more meaningful it will be....

Everybody is welcome.....

OK - I could get plane tickets to fly in on Fri night and fly out on Sun evening if I could get a ride to/from the airport. I obviously wouldn't be able to bring a whole lot, but would really like to participate if possible.

WOW.... that's great news from Jody and Tim!

We can arrange to pick up whoever, whenever at the airport here.... I've got plenty of storage space in my studio for helicopters, tool boxes, etc.... and will get the workshop straightened up enough to provide plenty of "working space" as well.

HOPEFULLY... I will have my own Predator flying at that point.... if nothing else, I will have my GMI mount with Kenyon Gyro, if anybody want to try that out on their helicopter. Perhaps we can get a useful comparison between the GMI mount and the new "Digital Gyro" mount (whatever Jody is calling it....)

I'm going to put on my thinking cap, and try to figure out what might make the most interesting (and fun) subject matter for some AP field trips in the area.....

This is going to educational... and FUN!

I'm not sure exactly what I agreed to. The negotiations are kinda gray. So far it's involved dirty dishes and the kids laundry. I think it's going to get worse.

Hmmm...
Hey TC.
How far/long it is from DFW to your place?

I just might be able to pop down if the weather is decent enough to get some flying in.

I want to meet up with Jody and this would be a good time to do it.

Now how do I get the GMI, the heli and all the other stuff in small enough boxes for the plane trip.

DOH!
Nevermind I was not paying attention to locations.

Looks like too hard for me to get in easily.
I can fly to Phoenix or Dallas without issue, but the drive from either makes it not worth the trip.

Hey Jason....

I'm a BIT far from DFW.... but Southwest runs dirt cheap flights from Phoenix to Albuquerque. Why don't you check that option out?

It would be great to have you here!

Can't do that.....It would be taking food out of my kids mouths.

The wife works for the "other" eskimo.

Just wish I had a 172....I will have my Instrument ticket by then so the trip would be fun and I could just about fly into you backyard that way.

I will have to try and get time off anyhow so it may be out of the question.

That's great John....

So... counting noses... it looks like we'll have Jody, Tim, DJ, Mark, John, and myself...... that's six! Anybody else?

I'll have the workshop straightened up.... and the scenery ready! :-)

Actually, between now and then, I'm going to go out and shoot some ground based still shots of some possible AP targets... and let you guys choose what interests you.

I'll have an assortment of hardware... including a new video camera to play with... It should be really interesting!
