well done. i looked back at that tree a bit later and my hope was the severe lean it currently displays was present before we'd arrived to massage it.

Always fun, good save.

Ya'all did move the stake over a bit after?  ;) 

We tend to stick ours into the tops of the light poles at 100 feet  :'(

Nice rescue.

Is this, by any chance, where you guys have your Friday Night Fly?

Well, I guess I picked a bad night to miss.  Yes Jim, that is were we have the Friday night fly under the lights.

Looks like a great place to fly.  Lynn and I still plan on flying our Revs with you folks on Friday, October 15th.

Cheers.......

Slightly off topic ...

John, thanks for all the work you do on your albums.  First the pictures are great ... you even show a few Revs now and again.  But, even more enjoyable are the captions on the pictures.  They really help to capture the events.  I know they're a lot of work, so wanted to say how much I appreciate your efforts.

Cheers,
Tom
