Yes, someone asked about Craig a month or so ago. Hope he's okay because he's fallen off the face of the Barn. Was having some transmission issues a while ago that he was working through with Mac Van Pelt, but not sure how that all was resolved.

I'm kind of like that; I belong to a number of forums with different subjects (EF V8s, MGs, RVs, RC planes, garden tractors). As my activity level in each waxes and wanes, so does my corresponding forum activity. I probably haven't posted anything on this forum in several months and went a few months without visiting. (Mostly because I don't have anything meaningful to contribute.)

Not meaning to judge anyone, but it seems to me that once Craig, a.k.a. Old Henry, gets interested in something, he's really "all in". So, maybe Old Henry really does have a roof rack now for the airplane!!! Drones and drone photography may be next!!!

That said, I do miss his posts and travel logs!!

Yes, "Old Henry" is the modern Lowell Thomas "on the highway".

Thank you all for your concern. I am still alive and well. I did a 5 Day road trip across Kansas and Nebraska a couple of weeks ago but haven’t written it up yet. It is true that my passion has shifted to my giant motorized glider although I still drive old Henry every day. Hope to post my travel log of my trip across the plains soon. Thanks again for your concern.

The only vehicle I have that will fit my 8 1/2 foot wingspan is my 15 passenger van.

Talk about multi tasking. Flying a RC plane and making a video of yourself while doing it.
Keeping tuned.
