Caught the early bus again. The day started out cool.
Got a few things done which included visiting flight service for a weather brief. Looks like it should be ok for us.
Caught up with Pricey again fortunately. Haven't seen as much of him as I would have liked. After doing a few chores I wandered back to the plane in time to catch up with Duane and Mary just as they were leaving.
It was sad to see them go. I helped pull his gorgeous Falco down to the taxiway and waved goodbye as they taxied away.
12:15 I had my first radio interview. I was a bit nervous at first but Bob 'the homebuilder' was a great guy and made me feel at ease. I really enjoyed it.
After the radio interview I had a quick sandwich and caught up with Derwood and Pricey again for a trip to he seaplane base.
What a really lovely spot. Really relaxing and picturesque. It's definitely worth the trip. We went for a trip out on the boat for a look around the seaplanes. The heat was starting to crank again so being on the water was nice even though little relief.
On the return to the airfield I got a call from Budd Davisson requesting an interview for a slot in sport aviation. Darryn and I were planning on leaving but I had to meet Budd. I've read so many of his articles. He's flown so many different types of planes and written so many flight reports on different planes. His little finger will know more about planes than I ever will.
What an honour to meet him let alone be interviewed by him. He is a real aviation icon.
After my interview I was hot an tired so I caught the bus back to the hotel for a beer.
Throughout the day we decided it was time to move on so tomorrow we will depart to begin our trek back west.
