just think mike while you were having all this fun in a strange town i was tossing and turning in the sleeper out in western pa. hoping everything was going smooth for you but in the end everything turned out fine. still would have liked to seen that ol' G barreling down the mass. pike. the truck couldn't have found a better "new home".

Mike good buy on the G-Model. I enjoyed the tour with you and Mikey. It would have been nice to bring the G to Macungie. There are quite a few shows in the Northeast that have a good turnout.Nice timing on getting truck back in short order.Joe D.

I am glad you ended up with his G. it would have been neat to have several G's at Macungie this year, I guess we will have to arrange that another time. Doug

Mike,

I watched you check in with the G model. Wish I knew it was you - I would have said hello.

Mike, whatta catch!

BTW, anyone know what happened to Dick Kemp's G?

Offered it to me, as a runner, for $1500.00 about 5 years ago. (Insert head beating against wall sound here)

Sure hope it went to a good home. I've only seen 3 G's in my 45 years in the hobby.

Ouch! I heard that head beat sound clear over here in Missouri! I think we all have woulda-shoulda-coulda deals like that!

I don't recall seeing a G at the auction. Might have been sold before the auction. Paul

That's a very nice G model. Good to see it passed along from one caring owner to another.

Yup, Mike, I had those pics from Dennis saved on my favorites and looked it over many a time. Glad you got it, as I don't have the room here(just ask the township).

Fly'n is ALWAYS an adventure. The "tools of my trade" are packaged in gun cases. You wanna have fun, come walking in an airport with a rifle and pistol case!!!! Well, it used to be fun(lots of courtesy and door opening for me) now I just UPS them beforehand and eliminate the hassles.

The seats in coach aren't built for much more then an anorexic midget. Best I do is sleep to make the time go by quicker.

I'm not much taller, but long legs are a killer!!! I went to the left coast in '96. Four hours cramped up with people trying to knock you out as they made their way to the bathroom every few minutes(aarrgh). Knees into the seat in front of me, only a hard plastic sidewall to lean on(ugh). I do fly for work occasionally, if driving is out of the question.

I have a friend(my size) that does business in China/malaysia, etc, and travels there in coach a few times a year. Good gawd that must be horrible. 747 or not, you are still packed in like sardines.
