We got our stuff!

This box contains the "Quilt Kit" I ordered from Ray Jardine.  Ray is a lightweight backpacker guy with new ideas about how to reduce backpack weight.  This quilt should weigh in at 1.5 pounds where-as my old REI down mummy bag I have been toting around weighs 4 pounds!   Today I am going to one of my wife's friends to learn how to sew!  Wish me luck!  I'm getting ready for hiking season!!

Meanwhile, my #2 son got the engine he ordered for the

 RV-7/A he is building.

We are happy guys!

  1. Good luck on the sewing Ron. :-)
    Its nice to have the engine for the RV-7/A.
    We rebuilt a 1943 Stinson Reliant AT-19 Gullwing which took 2 years and many, many boxes of parts.
    It had a 9 cylinder 300 horsepower radial Lycoming engine. It consumes 18 gallons of petrol per hour, cruising at 125 mph. The cabin held 5 passengers.
    The Stinson is now in Holland and flying to airshows around Europe.
