    That is why when someone says they are going to slosh their tanks I say 'NO, Don't do it!'

    That movie has all the things I want -  poor acting, poor plot, unknown acting, questionable filmography, and attractive women in revealing clothing....

    And I suspect that it is never your wife telling you that you are right!

    I'll be there but not my Avid - it's flying the beams in my second hangar for a while.  I don't think an Avid is exactly what I'd fly from Florida to Wisconsin anyway.  My 5th wheel will be in Camp Scholler again this year.

    Don't be silly - he can't actually use it, it's too purty, he'd get it dirty!

    How do they do in sand?????  Ice fishing - the only ice I know about in fishing is the ice in my drink (hoping a stupid fish doesn't interrupt my enjoyment of that!)

    Looks an awful lot like my 'C' model, modified doors and cowl though - my doors have no aluminum on them, and the cowl isn't split down the middle like that.

    I'm a member - it's a public group, so easy to get added, but I think if you click on the 'Buy and Sell' link above the ad, you will see all the ads instead of just the one I linked. It looks like it is already selected, but click it again and the display changes to 'all'.
    Mumble mumble mumble grumble - user interfaces these days are all designed by the young whippersnappers that grew up playing the 'find the treasure' games......, you have click on every darn thing to see if there's a treasure underneath it.

    Avid on Facebook
    Facebook links don't work directly, but if you have a facebook account you can click on the 'view in facebook' link at the bottom to see it.
    $22,000, has grove gear, can't tell much else from the photos.

    I have a 'front clip' with the tricycle gear weldments I bought from someone on the forum.  I haven't installed it yet, and I haven't quite figured out how it goes in yet, but I'll take some measurements when I get a chance.
