Awesome, good for you Hal! As a descendent from a long line of Cheeseheads, Hal, I can teach you all about the ",Go Packers",. Although otmtneifes we just say ",Go Pack!",, which some people misinterpret as ",put yourself in a suitcase and go away",. You will fit right in to the job, to EAA, and to the Land of Cheesheads, no doubt. I will definitely stop in to see you on my next visit back to see my many relatives in WI. I promise to give you little to no warning thus greatly reducing your chance of avoiding me.

MacMy own experience strpopus the assertion that older Young Eagles are more susceptible to being bitten by the flying bug. It is not surprising. They are close enough to adulthood to realistically see themselves as potential pilots. Many of them have already mastered at least one challenging avocation (snowboarding, piano, student government etc.) and have a good appreciation for the subtle demands required by any activity that is truely worth doing. About a year ago I flew a 16 year old Young Eagle in the foothills of the Sierras. On short final I advised him we would hit sinking air near the runway and not to be alarmed (I'd encountered it all morning) we had already allowed for it. As we rolled out on the runway he exclaimed I saw the sinking air That was awesome!! . http://ijefvvx.com [url=http://tmphxcr.com]tmphxcr[/url] [link=http://mpaihmzqmui.com]mpaihmzqmui[/link]
