Incoming; Tim and Tammy showed up from New Jersey on their way to Lake of the Ozarks. Yes, the gear is down. The high clouds are the northern edge of Hurricane Alex, slowly sneaking in on us. Hope nobody has to use these guys. They've got the 4th of July colors! Outgoing. Tim and Tammy fueled up and on their way.
It should be a soap opera... First You, tow the van with the suburban 4 hours to Marshall ... You there, pilot, you fly the ag plane to Marshall ... 'Nother You up there in Iowa, you drive 4 hours to Marshall pick up the pilot and drive him 4 hours back to Iowa so he can fly the other ag plane to Marshall. First you, when you get back to Grove with the Suburban in 4 hours, the boss can leave with the motor home towing the mix trailer for 4 or 5 hours to Marshall. Never mind that the wind blew like mad all day making a tail-wag-the-dog trip for the you in the suburban, or that the pilot had to return to Grove to make a repair to the airplane and start out again, or that there were rain squalls all day, or that "junior you" had to play on the McDonald's playground, or that it would be after dark for the boss in the motor home and that the thunderstorms were growing along his route... Never mind all that... There is no plan B.
