Hey Everyone, who would be up for lunch the first part of January.  We had 2 places in mind, either Eufala (KEUF) or Cullman (KCMD)  I am thinking January 12.  Lets vote for the place and make sure that date works!

January 12 is good with me at this point, and either location would be fine.

You may want to put together a survey to get votes on location.

Weekends are good for me. I'm out of EDN. Just to throw a 3rd into the hat: Jack Edward's Platinum FBO was very helpful last weekend with a no obligation car for lunch, zero fees or fuel required. LuLu's is a decent size and right down the road from the airport ~3min drive.

@Oldguy how easy are these to get to for me, any ideas?

Easy, peazy. KEUF is down the road between KPLR and KECP (about 45 minutes) and KCMD is a whole 25 minutes from KPLR. If we were to all meet at Jack Edwards (KJKA) it would take almost 1 1/2 hours.

All you need to do is show up at my hangar, and we can go from there. :)

I am good for January 12. Cullman, Eufaula, or Gulf Shores work for me. Park at Gulf Air and Lulu’s is only a 5 minute walk. Let’s get a solid crew together. It will be fun!

I'm interested.  Cullman is 14 minutes away, Eufaula is 1:14.  Never been to EUF; always like trying new places.

C'mon over! Stop for fuel in Reykjavik; I-can't-pronounce-it, Greenland; Gander; and somewhere in New York or Pennsylvania. From there, even Lower Alabama is just a short hop, another 40-50 gallons.  ;)

And by then, you'll be pretty hungry and you will fit right in!

I believe its rake-a-vick or rake-ja-vick.
Have you seen the fuel prices for those stops?

I'll try to make it down from SC.  I used to go fishing with my dad in Eufaula, but haven't been since I was a kid.  Cullman and Eufaula are about the same distance from Greenville.

I would like to go but my manual gear motor is striped out and in need of an inspect and repair as necessary or an overhaul.  I'll find out the middle of December mechanic I mean doctor goes in and looks around.  I wont be flying by myself until the end of March at the earliest.:(  I don't plan on getting in the plane until the end of Feb. :(

We will have to schedule a repeat of this meting in April.

I did go flying the other day with my buddy and I was able to work the gear pretty well needed just a little help to put the gear down.

I had that done a few years ago. Bastich took 1/4" off the outer end of my collar bone "while he was in there," because it was a little pointy. Surgery was mid-Dec. Told me not to lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk for 90 days . . . When I was good to do that, he said that most of my "discomfort" had been from the bone work and that without it I'd have been fully recovered already.

Here's hoping your "look-see" goes well, and that you're out of the sling quickly!

Hey Everyone, we may need push back a couple of weeks for the meeting.  Our Mooney is getting some avionics installed so we won't have it out of the shop by then.  How about the end of January?  Lets look at the last Saturday in January.  Any takers?

If you decide on Cullman I may decide to fly down

Hey Everyone, sorry but I just added a poll.  It closes on 12/28.  After that, the most popular place is where we will fly to.

Would be fun, but Leesburg is a bit far for a lunch run.
