Home Saturday in the big silver tube. Recouped Sunday taking out the 170 for breakfast, only the second time this year, picking up the dog from the sitter, then spending the rest of the afternoon with the daughters and grandkids at the daughters pool. Back to the grind today. 96° and 100% humidity here in PA. Hot and miserable in a nomex flight suit. And I'll keep thinking about our Cody Trolley tour guide who thought 84°and 20% humidity in an air conditioned bus/trolley was hot.

Cody was a very nice place. Love to get back there again sometime. Another great convention and as conventions go there never seems to have enough time to do all the things you'd like to do.

Very nice seeing some different members and airplanes from the north west, only wish there was more time to get to know each a little better.

Thanks to Jim, Lolly and Jan for putting this all together in a years time. Thanks to all the volunteers who without them, the hosts would have an impossible job.

Just wanted to thank all who made the Cody convention run so smoothly. Lorraine and I had a wonderful time. My only regret was not having good enough weather here in PA to allow me fly my 170 out there. Thanks again. Bill K

We had a great trip home with a few stops along the way. Did the scenic route north and got home Thursday with yards to mow. It WAS a great Convention. Thanks to all.

Was another great convention, thanks to Jim, Lolly, Jan and all the volunteers. I cheated and flew the RV-7 instead of the 170. But it sure was nice going home at 11500, 47 degrees and 223 mph. Sure wish we could have brought some of that cooler air back to SC with us.

Thanks to all the folks whose dedication and sacrifice, allow us to have such a great time at the conventions. Jim, Lolly, and Jan most of all of course, but we know it takes a lot of others to put on an event like this, and you are all appreciated. Katie and I left KCOD at 7:00 am Sunday, fueled at KRAP, lunch and fuel at KFSD, and we were pulling up to the house at C77, at 7:00pm. 7 hours tach time at 11,500 and doing 140 kts. Total tach time for the trip was 15.6 including a few sightseeing excursions. What a beautiful place to visit. See you all next year.

Wow, what an adventure that trip to Cody was, and the Convention was proof that the finest people are 170 enthusiasts and TIC170A members. Like many others who flew to Cody we also had weather delays going home but that became part of the adventure. Jim, Lolly, and of course Jan, you and your team of volunteers were tireless workers and everything ran so smoothly. The people of Cody were great ambassadors for their fascinating city and awesome landscape, plus Choice Aviation were very generous and helpful. To all our friends old and new, thanks for the memories, merci beaucoup. It was all wonderful.
