This morning Harry planned to fly his Harmon Rocket II for the first time after a 2 year rebuild. (A friend of his had ground looped it pretty bad)

I was to ride along with Smitty in his RV-6 flying chase.

Harry's Rocket.

Testing out his new smoke system.


It ended up being such a nice morning, I thought I'd take the 7A for a quick spin too. What a great way to start the new year.

After I got home we took the kids to the annual Lake Tapps Polar Bear Plunge. Holy crap it was cold but unbelievably refreshing. :)
