:(

I have to work this weekend. I'll be able to get out sometime to fly up here, but not to make the trip down to the festival. Man.

So, I'm going to go off an pout now...

Y'all have fun, though - looks like the weather's going to be great.

Absolutely - I'm planning on Sunday afternoon, actually, though I can change my work schedule a bit to manage Saturday morning instead.

with our new and improved scale back to 2 engineers, I've been pegged to work on Sat and am playing at church on Sunday so I won't bee there this weekend... of course, if anything changes.....

Funny thing is, the project I'm going out on is some programming for an anemometer that's been tracking windspeed in Northbrook for the last 4 months to see if wind power electrical generation for the customer is an option... so at least I'm doing something with the wind...

I guess I'll be seeing you all in Two Rivers...

Oh yes, McKite scores another photo. Something about that color combo says "TAKE MY PICTURE."

Now, as to my profile shot ...

Saturday was a fun day. Too hot for me, but the wind stayed up enough to fly most of the day. Went home hot, sweaty, tired and happy ... can't ask for much more.

Thanks Mike.
