Rough River 2009


Recommended Posts

Well good EZ people, I know there is a lot of attention on OSH 09 at the moment, but I thought I'd start a role call of who is intending to be at RR09 (in one consolidated thread). So, sound off if you plan to be there.....

 

I'm hoping that Don will be there with his video gear again, and the Cozy Girrrls with their impeccable machined and polished hardware for starters.

 

Cheers,

 

Bruce.

Depending on Work (we're in the middle of harvest) I may be able to make a day trip.

 

That is, if I don't run into any difficulties in my Phase I (FAA gave me 5 hours and 20 landings)

Yes believe it or not, I am leaving Melbourne and via LA to Reno for a week, then bum around Ca before hopefully hooking an EZ lift to RR. From RR, hopefully then another EZ ride to DC/Va/Md area to see friends before returning to Melbourne via LA. Did you still want that Vegemite?? ;)

 

It appears the numbers for RR may be down due to the US economy, but hopefully we will all be pleasantly surprised with another great turn-out.

 

Cheers,

 

Bruce.

What was that stuff for anyway; can you grease wheel bearings with it or was it originally used for preserving military jeeps? I heard a yachty friend say he uses it to grease the ball valve in his marine toilet :rolleyes:

Bruce,

 

Amy & I will be flying down in a spam can. It will be really good to hook up and drink some Good American beer.... too bad I don't know any! :) seriously, I never drank beer before moving to oz and have yet to drink and American beer since we've returned.

 

The offer still stand if you need any thing while you're here, just let us know.

 

 

mmm. Vegemite. :(

It's a State park, alkie-haul is verboten. Not to mention it's a dry country. But if you decant said liquid into a paper/plastic cup, who's to know?

 

I'd planned on a rain check this year, economy and all. Maybe I can haul a selection of local barley-pop out that way. Not as good as a Tooheys or Redoak though ;)

Just got back from RR. Did not see any canards:( It is still one of my favorite places. This trip was family trip and a taste for "The Worlds Best Pizza Joint".

I think you were a little early :cool:

 

I'm only in chapter 6, but will try to get there to ogle and gawk and take a million pics. I plan to ride down on my motorcycle (from Westchester County in NY) and camp.

I'd fill my epoxy shoes with Ragu and eat them cold before eating at "The Worlds Best Joint" ...and those kids doing kareoke, take a jumbo sized jar of peanut butter and as soon as one opens their shrill little gob, shove a handful of peanut butter in there, that place is a nightmare! :bad:

Why would you want to be so mean to peanut butter???:confused:

FYI: Accross the street the "Fiddler's Restaurant" has opened. It is in the new building to the right of the Gas Station/restaurant/baitshop/Jack of all trades. The store and corner restaurant next to the post office is still vacant.

 

I actually did not subject my family to the "Worlds greatest Pizza" but figured it would get a laugh.

Its the restaurant/baitshop that concerns me... one of my favorite coastal towns had on the corner a baitshop on one face and immediatly around the corner a sushi bar... now come one folks, there's more to making sushi than putting bait on a dab of rice!:P

Because I can appear to be nice while force feeding peanut butter whereas duct tape makes a tell-tale noise when you rip it off the roll, you might catch the fist one unawares but the rest of them can run faster (than I can) and there is that screaming thing they do.

Well I am a hvac tech-and for last 15 years never had no time to focus on anything but work 7 days a week - I moved to San Angelo TX from Nashville TN after 8 yrs as an installer.But now I still work as a hvac tech but work 4-10hr days 3 days off hehehe no overtime so now I can FOCUS it looks like I will build a open-ez.I may decide to sell my cozy plans to buy a epoxy pump-the only thing I need to start- I have a nice supply of building stuff like foam- glass bubbles-flox- peel ply other tools but no pump yet.As far as honey do's/ I had a medium house fire 8 months ago and I have re-done evey room in my home except 1 tub- waterheater rock the fireplace-and replace 6 window's-so there should be no more do's after those.But u r right they(wives) will always find something they want to change thanks (KOOL RAY)
