Tracking number made it to me today...thanks MB49!

I put out an invitation for when they get here...hopefully "Dad" ok's it. He's got a small pack of kids. We are about to go back to winter here, so it may slow down flying opportunities/movement for a bit.

Getback, unlike my time with the other Traveling Engines, the holidays, family time and a modicum of other nit-noys disrupted my time in the workshop and with the mindset of a 30 day turnaround time limit, I just didn't have a chance to get something built or even modify something I already have built for flight. So, I'm hoping the group "show and tell" session would still be accounted as a tribute because that's one thing us modelers are good at ... "show and tell" and "chewing the fat"!! I do know the guys enjoyed seeing these little gems and going through the log book.

Guys,
I just got home from work to find a box from Titusville, FL sitting here. Without opening the box, I am reporting they are now in my possession...in 34 degree (F) Mississippi. I'll crack open the box a bit later.

Another invitation was put out. This time to my co-worker's nephew. The co-worker is supposed to bring up the idea with his sister (neph's mom) this weekend. Hopefully weather permits next weekend, and I'll have a few boys (and maybe a girl or two) on hand for this. I sure would hate to fly them alone.

Thanks for allowing me to join in.
This is an honor.

Sorry guys.

I've had a crazy several weeks.They are still in the box as shipped from Florida.

Any decently sunny day has been very windy. Any other day has been wet and grey. Then we had some medical issues in the house; first my wife, and then me.

I hope to re-engage the dad with many kids (four or five) as soon as this crazy weather clears. But the good news is the tornadoes ran all around my little town...no direct hit in my backyard.

I'm so sorry.

Was happy to see you I am OK posts on FB and here Re: the tornadoes.

We have seen 5 form and make ground in our 34 years on the micro ranch. Our place is half way up a minor Hill in the 5 hills area near copperas Cove Texas. front covered porch faces west. Luckily Tornadoes don't prefer to track up a hill, they pass us north or south within 3/4 of a mile.

Most devastating was total 100% wipe off the map Jarrell Texas 1997. This week the 2 we saw did little damage as they tracked over very rural areas. One we saw further south is the tornado that messed up parts of Round Rock some 34 miles away to the south east.

Going to be an intense year based on our previous extreme WX years experiences

Jim and Fred, glad to see you are both safe. Some years ago had an eerie happening here in Clovis NM. All of a sudden, the air got super still, with a bone chilling electrical feeling in the air. A slow circling dark mass of clouds similar to the Adams Family photo of the house and sky, that above our house was so dark it was almost black. I never saw such. The wife and I decided to duck into the inner recesses of the house, our hallway with all doors shut. Shortly after the winds picked up. The tornado touched down in Texico 5 miles east of us, a boarder town in NM to Texas. We were spared.

Yet another tornado touched down 15 years ago about 2 miles from us, tore up a few businesses and residences. It's been strange, hardly any rain or snow here, but floods in other places. We haven't got near the 17 inches a year we are supposed to get.

BTW, I was looking for the guidelines for the recipient of these traveling engines. Forgive me for asking, but particularly Rusty's, where is it posted?

Thanks, Marleysky, I somehow missed that one post by Jason that explained the rules. For the time being, I'll have to pass. I am recovering from a herniated disk in my back, so I am limited in what I can do. May be at a later date when I am in better shape, I can take up the challenge, but thanks for encouraging me. Thumbs Up

I am embarrassed to to explain...Shamefully, I never got to spend a moment honoring Rusty. I really wanted to hold that RR-1 for a moment, and try to get the little engines sorted, and fly a big boy with that Fox.

The late winter/early spring never cooperated for flying. It was my intention to record them flying, not bench running. My church pastor's platoon of kids were to try CL flying as I understood these engines are also to be used to show kids what CL is. This was planned...but then a tornado threatened a planned event with a near miss. The weather never cooperated as spring sprung!

By the time the weather straightened out, my oldest boy really needed "Dad" with some difficult stuff as his freshman year of college came to a close, and then my youngest wanted "Dad" time for other things. They rarely ask me for my time, but often for money (it seems that how it goes with older boys becoming men). As both boys are racing through the last of that period of time I can influence them, I chose to give as much of me as they wanted/needed. Hopefully, the time spent in the twilight of their formative years will be sweetly remembered by them years from now. After two deployments, and lots of missed "events" due to drill weekends/annual training/required schools as well as the full time day job, and now retired from that "part time job," I can (and must) give them as much of me as I can. Especially as I was a hard, high-expectations, demanding Platoon Sergeant, er/umm, Dad. I've got great boys (according to a lot of people) so the past/present is worth the work and now the "on-demand" investment of my time.

By the time I finally had some "me" time, I realized I had them for entirely too much time. So on the starting morning of a planned anniversary getaway with my bride of twenty seven years, I took the never-opened box to the PO.

I apologize profusely to our special community...you guys are great!

I received a message from fredvon, and I replied to him, but I cannot see if my messages have been getting to him.

I'm eager to receive the engines, and have given Fred my address in the message.
I hope I'm sending them correctly.
Thanks everyone! This will be fun!
