Project Update

Hi Folks,

I’m back on the beat with getting some airplane tasks (not build), hangar organization, NC move loads (mainly LEZ and shop toolsand starting back up again with house repairs to get it on the market.

As I communicated in my last few updates, I’ve had a fair number of significant schedule derailments over the past 6 months so I’m now really ready to get all this stuff knocked out and down to NC ASAP.  

You may have noted that I didn’t mention instrument flying training in the above list.  I am leaving that OFF the list until the house is done and on the market.  Just too many distractions and too much required mentally, time-wise and study-wise to try a concurrent attempt at house prepping and instrument flying.  At this point, the house is the definite priority as I do some sideline tasks for the Long-EZ project (instrument panel design, component CAD designs, 3D printing models/parts, etc.) that I can check, confirm & update with each trip down to the hangar.

I’m still moving out as best possible to get this way-protracted move complete and get back on the build!
