Well, suffice it to say that I am behind the power curve on my move down to NC!
The first impacting event was of course Hurricane Florence. In my attempt to be prudent I went down to NC the Tuesday before the hurricane hit and grabbed all that I could airplane wise and brought it back north. I detail the specifics in a blog post.
Moreover, I had friends from down there that spent the week with me up north while the hurricane did its thing, so that of course slowed me down considerably on my house updating in prepping it to sell.
Then there was Rough River 2018. I had originally planned not to go, but Marco couldn’t fly due his Long-EZ being down for engine stuff and his buddy’s Velocity being inop on critical avionics to fly IFR in the WX that had Rough River enveloped all the way East to the Atlantic coast. I couldn’t let him drive the 12+ hours to RR alone, so I bit the bullet and headed off to RR for the weekend, bookended of course by the aforementioned mucho driving!
I am now back in Northern Virginia, and am once again starting to work full tilt on updating and prepping my house for sale. Weather permitting, I will return the fuselage, etc. back down to NC in the next week or two. So, my Long-EZ build continues to be officially on hold for a good few MORE weeks at a minimum, and again possibly up to a couple MORE months. Still, I’ll reiterate that I will make every effort possible to minimize build downtime during this transition.
