Default Rough River 2007

Well, for the last two years the forum has fed the entire fly in lunch - been great - lots of people met lots of people and many interesting conversations had by all - this year we will do it again.

Talked to Nathan Gifford recently and he suggested we do something along with the lunch, something to add to the event.

A thought struck me when MPlafleur mentioned that he always took antenna measuring and repair gear and forgot to take it out. Why not bring odd tools for fixing or inspection?

MP said he will bring his antenna gear, I will bring my engine bore scope and a long extension cord.

Anyone have something else to add to the mix?

I once cracked a cylinder wall when changing spark plugs so I will not pull a plug without first clearing it with compressed air - we will need a small air compressor.

I also emailed Terry to make sure he does not mind

Didn't you say something earlier about taking takeoff and landing measurements? How about a performance testing signup. Maybe there are some curious flyers out there who'd like an extra hand or comparison.

How about a call to Sam or Dave at CSA and offer to give a hand or colaborate. At least we can get our ideas out to their posts as well.

Terry loves the idea

Who knows, maybe somebody has a transponder tester, or a pitot static checker too?
I wonder if measuring take off distance could end in a macho disaster? I would love to measure canards, landing gear geometry, etc for the planes and make an N number list for information sake.

it would be a big task

How about a fenestrated bulkhead demo? Maybe someone can show up with seatback with the mod...

Has anyone done this yet? I did a bit of a search about the net to see if there was any flying examples before designing mine, didn't find anything. (and mine is awfully far from flight, being on chapter 5).

Uh huh, the sarcasm is dripping...

Pods would work, but hey, why not have a big hole.

Actually, I think "long cargo passthrough" is a better term than Kumeros' "Fenestrated bulkhead" label.

Not to worry Craig. If you think you're getting flak for this mod, imagine the grief that surrounded drilling a hole throught the main spar for a drive shaft.

I'll bring:
Bottle of juniper berry flavored stuff, some quinine flavored water with bubbles, maybe one of those really sour green citrus fruits.

Think I can find two mason jars of home made kraut for the brats/dogs. Brought one last year, went quick.
