[  Mood: Cool ][ Watching All of you.... Currently: Watching All of you.... ]

So I got my butt handed to me in Elsinore, what else can I say but simply, I plan on moving there soon, REAL SOON! Then she will be my BEE-OTCH!

The past 2 weeks have been pretty tough on me and all but to check a few PMs and have a look at your experiences I didn't really have the time to post anything... but I have pictures now, and will be posting them from the Vegas/Elsinore trip on Dec 15-24th

I've been sporting my HG.org shirt with pride, thanks to RAD who graciously provided me with one the day of my arrival and acceptance into the infamous e-team! Man if I had known that it takes a 28mph lawn dart experience to joint that group I may have stayed my butt in Vegas! At least Carol (my Black Jack Dealer), was much more predictable and cute!!!

Ok, I'll be posting the pics on the forum in a few minutes, have to format the size to the HG.org specs...
Rolling Eyes

PS: I missed you all tremendously...

PSS: I did fly when I got back home, and I was a bit apprehensive, Cali, really rocked my world and I quickly attained an appreciation for the ground...

PSSS: My landings were as expected punch

PSSSS: Although RAD would have you think I WHACKED in Elsinore, it wasn't a whack... It was more of a carrier landing, with out the carrier, or the wire... surrender

PSSSSS: Pics are on the Save Elsinore Thread.... Smile

Although I didn't see the actual moment of impact, I did hear a very distinctive sound - sort of an aluminum crunching, teeth-gritting, resounding reverberation that could best be described as, I don't know...
WHACK!

Good to have you back Doc.

Doc,

It's good to hear from you again. We've all been concerned.

Thanks for taking the time to come out to Elsinore. I had a great time meeting you and your beautiful family. We had a great day and a lot of laughs. Oh, and by the way, I have never seen anybody hit so hard and plow so much earth, and walk away vertually unharmed. Your a "STUD". thumbsup

Welcome back, Doc.

I personally think you was a victim of the dreaded Elsinore rotor. If that flag was from the East when you flew by, it sure as hell wasn't when you landed. As of the oak tree and your landing, it was due North.

Great to have you back, I'd bet after all that fun in Vegas, you'd have to play a little catchup.

You really, really, should move to Calif! mosh mosh mosh
