As a little kid I used to watch Artie Scholl go through his preflight and then roll out and toss the plane around for 20 minutes or so right above us. Good times.
Thats great, its too bad I missed the heyday at Flabob. I did fly in there for an open house a couple years ago. They have a lot of neat stuff there and interesting speakers at the presentations.

I need to go to one of those Performance Driving schools after I get some new rear tires (~2/32 tread left before the wear bar) so I can get a good feel for what the car can do, its limits and how I can drive it to take advantage of its Porsche abilities.

I'd like to come to Pomona and check things out but not sure that weekend will work for me. I'll see as it draws closer how my schedule pans out.

Cars and Planes a couple of great topics to cackle about.
