We went to the expo on Wednesday morning. Kind of a slow start, but had fun.
I met Paul Shuch and talked Porsches and Mg TDs. Something about drive em for an hour, work on em for 2.
Mark Gregor made me promise to send people to the Tecnam Hangar.
So go see Mark. :)

Went to the show today, beautiful and sunny. What an amazing day. Pretty good crowd for a Friday, I'm sure tomorrow will be packed with more great weather in store again in the first half of the day. Caught Pauls forum on VFR sectionals and introduced myself. Also met 1/2Fast at the same forum. Great to meet you both and a great presentation Paul. Strolled over to the Tecnam hangar and introduced myself to Mark as well. He let me "try on" the Astore and the P2008 he flew in from up north. Both amazing aircraft, but I think the Astore was my favorite. (I still love the Sierra MkII) Thanks for taking time out of your schedule Mark, it was a pleasure to talk with you and see the beautiful Tecnam line of aircraft.

Hope other will get down to the show tomorrow.
