Re: Who is flying what, where and when this week 7/24-7/30

Well, I headed south on 53 from Schaumburg to 113 south to Kankakee. I'm sitting at a picnic table in Limestone Park if anyone wants to join me. Wind is 0-4mph right now.

Re: Fly near chicago - 7/31

All the leaves on all the trees are moving here in Schaumburg,
Let's get going, the wind is blowing,
And the last line of this poem don't rhyme.

Pick a card spot, any card spot.

I'm getting into my car now and heading south. Call 847-340-0366 and I'll join you.

Re: Who is flying what, where and when this week 7/31 - 8/6/

I clicked the link to the rev site and got there, but I saw that I could not post (small print somewhere near the bottom I think), and I looked for some way to register so that I could. Found nothing, gave up and posted what you saw on the IKE forum.

Re: How to post a link in a thread

Ok, yeah, sure, no problem. Do you believe you're dealing with an internet idiot? Wait a minute. Yes, I am. Duh.

If we get around to flying today, I'll bring my laptop.

I went to the QC RAGBRAI today. It's 10:20 pm now. Just came through the door 5 minutes ago. I was the only one to set any quad-lines; the other guys pretty much had their hands full trying to keep the flexifoils up. I helped a bit now and then getting them back up. The wind was blowing from the sou...
