Progress and Setbacks

August 27, 2015

It’s only one week until I leave for the LOOP THE LAKE trip. Am I ready yet? Well….. I HAVE made some good advances on my aero/cargo tail. After seeing how much gear I needed to bring with me, I decided that I really needed something better than a passenger seat to carry it all. […]
