27 May, 2009 -- Fly! Be Free!!!!!

Ben came by to help Lloyd take down the hangar door frame. He wasn't really dressed for this kind of work (so we chased him off). Lloyd had most of it done, anyway.

40 year old rusty bolts, kinda reluctant. But Lloyd won, as usual.
Got the 180 this far, then used Ben's tow dolly to pull it the rest of the way.

It cleared that hanging beam with lots of push push pull pull lean on it push push pull pull.
You get the idea. Relief.
Fly!!! Be free!!! Three weeks of captivity, over!

The Archer is still trapped, though.

Lloyd replaced the spinner on the 180, and it's ready to go to work. Now, if I just had some work to do. It won't be long.

Jody, I'm still using Mike's wheel chocks from your 172, and I still have all your LA and Vegas charts from the early 90's, too, tucked away on a shelf. You must tell us all your stories!

New fruit crusher and juice press arrived today... They are so beautiful, I hate to stain up the oak, and they smell so woody-good. I'm planning on making blackberry, and maybe blueberry, juice this summer. Then, maybe with a little yeast...

Mr. Preppy Ben. Looks like it's a good time to clear all the crap out from under the wings. Mmm. Save some juice for jelly!

Hey, Lloyd threw away a whole trailer load of stuff today!
I'll save ya some juice, blackberry & maybe there will be enough blueberries after I eat my fill.
