Crack pictures

I’ve been asked by several people for pictures of the cracking I’m experiencing.  I’ve not been able to get any good pictures of the elevator cracks but I did manage to get pictures of the wing skin cracking.  Here is a pic of those cracks.

    I wish I could go. I’m taking the family on a vacation to Tenessee in June and that’s going to sap all the vacation funds. I can afford to go to OSH about once every two years. Hopefully they’ll offer the same thing next year.

    It seemed like a good match, but going to Oshkosh every year would be expensive. I take it you went last year? I’m not too sure you would want to stay around all week before/after either. But I couldn’t help but think of you when it posted in case you were going.

    Back to Oshkosh, I’m kinda still “dreaming”. I really need to buy a tool kit but need to wait until I sell something or start working again (for someone who pays, not myself :-(, so it’s kinda neat to still look at all this stuff, (most of which I do not need, or would never buy). I’m glad the truth is not like that. It’s all good, and all needed. Complete.

    Yeah, I went last year. I get really excited about going and the adventure of the trip and all that. But once I’m there for a couple of days, I really start to miss my family. I don’t know if I could ever stay the whole week unless they were with me.

    So what’s holding you up from starting? Need tools? Need kits? Whazzup?

    I’m tapped out on the house, financially and time wise right now. I could “sqeeze” in some work maybe on the RV4 but that means I would have to work around it finishing the house, and haul it back into the garage. So for now I’m being patient (kinda). Plus I would have to buy at least a 1/2g of tools. Debt is kind of stress-ful and I don’t want my wife to think I have my priorities mixed up. It’s good enough she will let me do this when the time comes, but I need to finish this never-ending mystery house. 🙂 (Have you ever been to the mystery house in San Jose?) But soon enough, because we are getting close, hopefully a couple of months. At that point I will start working until it sells and can shift gears.

    I have been considering trading my other piece of property up here for a flying RV and ditching the building all together for a while. What are those RV’s for sale around Oakdale? Do you think any of the guys would be looking for a trade? The property is valued at $89K, and I may sell it this summer. If the house sells then I plan on building on it (one more time….here we go again) and I would definately not be building until I had that thing sided and a roof on.

    So you can see, my plans are a little loose right now. So till then I am in planning mode. I just got an invitation for Debra and I to go to Sun ‘n’ Fun in a week all expenses paid! Can’t beat that. Mom and Dad offered. Dad wants to go twist some rotors, so we are going along for some R&R. I guess sending my parents to Hawaii a couple of times in the former years is paying off. I think I like the folks retirement!

    I don’t know if Tom would consider a property trade or not. You could always ask him. It’s a nice RV-6 that’s for sale. The guy that built it is a good Christian man, a retired materials physicist or some such. Contact him at tkuklo (at)

    There is also an RV-4 for sale for $49k that appears to be a really nice airplane. It’s in the VansAirforce Forums:

    Wow, have fun at SunNFun! You know they have the whole placed wired for WiFi? If you have a laptop, bring it along! If not, take a lot of pictures. I’d like to go some day but that’s a long haul. Maybe when my wife is ready for some airplane travel we’ll both go.
