Yeah, so many times I have NO idea what people are talking about. It's both lazy and inconsiderate to not fully
explain what you're talking about...

I think "Rick Wakeman" there is referring to a toy show in New Jersey.

I have to ask, how much suspenion does a 250cc have now. I raced in the era from 2 shocks to the mono shock & more suspension & HP every year to compete. The last one I raced was was a 250 Can-Am Black Widow & 2 250 white ones before that. Very dependable, flew many planes with Rotax engines. There's a bunch on the net & mine had the stickers. Also had a Husky 250 motocross & hillclimbed some. Tried trials later but wasn't as good.

After checking that list, it is pretty obvious he is talking about the Anti Monday Association. I would like to attend, but some idiot scheduled it for a Monday. :mad:

Maybe my favorite plane of all time. Seems only Doolittle and Benjamin could tame it. :)

I didn't really take any other pictures today. I did take a video of my son flying a control line plane in the flight cage earlier today. I'll take a bunch of pictures tomorrow and Sunday. Anything specific you would like to see?

Some pictures from this morning. Check out one of the lunar lander thrusters. I assume the boat pond folks also setup something similar at cabin fever this year? I didn't end up going to cabin fever.

We got back from the show today. Here are a few pictures from today. My son got a nice 36cc buggy with a wheelie bar to add to his collection.

Thanks! They are great kids. The AMA Expo in NJ is my son's favorite expo. I was going to bring him to Cabin Fever this year (I've never been) but everyone was sick that week so I didn't bother but we'll plan on going next year.

Everything looks great. We had a model flyer club at the airport & a guy had a 12' winspan model & $16K into it. I've always wonderered why not buy a plane & fly. He crashed the $16k model & I don't know if they're insured. Anyway I wanted to mention Gilmore car museum has events many weekends & a moterorcycle show, sale & swapmeet June 10th, here's the schedule. Very well worth the trip north of Kalamazoo. https://www.gilmorecarmuseum.org/events-calendar/
