The Road to Muncie

Although some team members are still relaxing at home or on vacation :- ), others are well into the long drive to Muncie. Chad & Nedim departed on Friday morning and tonight they are in Champaign, IL. With the van full of planes they will hit an RC field tomorrow morning and get in a few rounds before heading in to Muncie on Sunday. This will give them a break from driving and allow for some relaxed flying prior to the last push through.

Pat and Hartley left Sechelt, BC early Friday and stayed in Bridgeport, WA last night. They pounded through some 495 miles of continental divide today and are safely camped in Three Forks, Mt. just west of Boseman.  The camp site has wi-fi so we managed to skype tonight and get caught up on their adventures.

Grand Coulee

They will head towards Wyoming & South Dakota with a stop planned at Mount Rushmore. The Black Hills and the Badlands will also warrant a visit. They are making good time and may even arrive a day early into Muncie... maybe. At this point we hope to see them on the 23rd as they are cruising eastward on pace.

I will be heading back home tomorrow from our mini vacation to make final arrangements and pack for my Tuesday flight with Mark. We will fly via Toronto into Indianapolis and grab a rental van for the drive up to Muncie. Walmart ice cream section... look out!
