Stainless steel brake lines

Bruce Hughes
 

Group:

I have good brakes and never considered SS lines.

HOWEVER a buddy bought a beautiful Longeze.
Time came for a condition inspection last week.
The AI told him to deal with his less than perfect brakes
by replacing the plastic lines.   So he is grounded.

I told him that some builders had pushed SS lines
through their existing plastic lines and are very
happy with the lines.

He needs some expert help on that, please.

Looking for a flying Viggen. I think someone in Arizona has one....

Keith, we'd love the have you and Terri there but not the Yorkie as darling as they are.
If we make one exception  it is not fair the the rest, a little one here, a bigger one there and a pair of Labs crapping everywhere.
Sorry but we won't have a repeat of RR where we had dogs crapping in the food prep area and everywhere else. Outside of our campsite
are our neighbors who would love to complain about dog mess on their campsite no matter if it happened or not.
I get crazy when I see these things happening and want to get mean and rude, we are trying to reduce the stress and have a good time for all.

Oshkosh Tuesday Night Dinner

cozygirrrl
 

    Cozy Girrrls 1st Annual Early Birds Jambalaya Jam
===========================================
 This is a CSA/RAFE group event for Canard Enthusiasts
 
Its that time again!
If you are coming to Osh and are going to be there early in the week (Tuesday) and hoping to
connect with other canardians, this is it!
 
WHAT's FOR DINNER:
Jambalaya is a Cajun/Creole dish, it is made in a huge cast iron kettle, it is
mildly to somewhat spicy-NOT HOT. Chicken, pork, sausage, veg and rice.
Hint: it goes well with beer.
  
LOCATION:
We will be at our campsite on North Doolittle providing we get our usual spot
otherwise we will put out the word via grapevine where we will be located,
as always look for the little red truck. Pictures of truck and map at bottom.
 
WHEN:
Tuesday July 2rd, social hour begins around 5PM BYOB eer
 
$5 "donation" per person, PLEASE bring a chair this year!
 
RSVP:
...this is a test, based on previous years RSVP responses we have determined 70%
of you either drink a lot when using your computer or your skills at following the
simplest of written instructions are questionable, even if they come with M drawings.
We wish to thank the remaining 30% for making our lives easier.
So, if you are coming to the dinner, please send us an RSVP with a one line response:
 
Please do it like this:
 
# of people, name(s), email, cell

EXAMPLE:
 
2, Chrissi, Randi, CozyGirrrl@..., 867-5309
 
That way there will be enough food and beverage, you wouldn't want to run out would you?
There is a threshold where we may need to make a 2nd pot, so real numbers are important.
 
IMPORTANT:
1. If you RSVP, please make sure you receive a Thank You! email from us within 48 hours.
2. Picnic tables are probably not available so bring a chair if you are able to scrounge one.
3. No vehicles, there is absolutely no parking available, you must park in the BLUE lot and walk.
4. Bicycles, golf carts, strollers etc must be off the road and not on our neighbors campsites.
5. We do not know of anyone who will be donating alcohol so feel free to BYOB or pass a hat and make a run to Walmart.
6. =Please, no animals!= ,we LOVE animals, just not when & where we are preparing and serving food.
7. If you RSVP in the 10 days before Airventure you will probably not receive an acknowledgement from us.
8. This has been a very wet Spring & Summer so far, count on mosquitoes! Spray yourself.
 
You will need your chair and maybe a blanket for the movie next door, schedule says
Tuesday, July 23: Planes: Fire and Rescue (Cartoon)
This sequel to 2013’s Planes takes us into the world of aerial firefighting as Dusty Crophopper gets
fitted with a water tank and amphibious floats, and gets to work.
This animated Pixar feature features a star-studded voice cast, and nonstop aviation.

.... or stick around and socialize!
 
Our trusty band of well trained and highly skilled volunteers look forward to seeing you all there!

I’ll try to stop by, but won’t be partaking. (Unless you reconsider and decide to do a vegetarian “Millennial meal” option! 😆)
Would love to see you guys again. The banter about the examination and bowling ball reminded me what I miss about this community.

Bob Tilley's fine authentic Louisiana Jambalaya.

Bob and I are considering making a huge cast iron

kettle full, all you will need to bring is an

appetite and a chair (NO TABLES AVAILABLE) (and

maybe a small donation?).
We will provide the place and the food, some

sodas, ice and water. There should also be a

minivan available if a few souls wish to pass a

hat and make a beer run to Walmart. Trying to keep

this one simple and informal, less work, no

stress.
For those unfamiliar with the dish, Jambalaya is a

 one-pot dish of chicken, pork, sausage & rice,

and some other things. It is somewhat spicy but

not hot. Goes great with beer if you bring some =)

And now, the rest of the story...

We know the Spaghetti Bash is important and has

been a great family event for Canardians, it grew

into something much larger than we had envisioned.
This year due to many issues, past and current we

do not have the valuable manpower or energy to put

on this event as it has been in the past. We were

going to not do it at all, then remembering the

simplicity of Bob's Jambalaya thought we might be

able to do it up at the nice new shelter pavilion

at the top of the homebuilt camping field since it

would be an informal get together of homebuilders

and many of them camping in said area. We just got

the word this morning from the EAA that this would

not be okay with them.
It takes a team to do the dinner, we have an

awesome team! This year two key members are unable

to be there, we would not attempt to do this

without them.
It takes a lot of begging to get the tables we

round up each year, when we announce the dinner we

always say we may not be able to get any tables,

last year there was a huge stink by a Chairman

that -we- had stolen their tables when in fact we

had no idea of the source or origin of said tables

but because said EAA chairman does not like Randi

they attempted to put her in a bad light.
It is important to know it is against EAA rules to

sell food or alcohol, period. There are venues

available, a list of caterers and purveyors with

liquor licences to provide such things. We have

hosted this party for the CSA for the last ten

years, originally intended to round up the few

early arrival lost souls looking for other canard

people and have a good evening of camaraderie. We

have asked for a minimal donation to cover costs

and anything extra has gone into the kitty for the

next year to add whatever pots and pans etc to

make this work and accommodate the expanding group,

this has worked well. Someone has been kind enough

to bring and donate beverages and even sangria

(thank you whoever you are).
Let it be known to keep peace on our street we

have always extended an open invitation to any and

all to join us, nobody excluded. But year after

year issues have been instigated, sadly two of

them are chairmen, that have resulted in at least

one major problem each year. They have called the

police (we're having a party), they have called

security (they are selling food and alcohol), they

have extensively lied to their friend who runs

campground security and we have been told by him

"he has heard all about what we are doing and we

are being watched", we get complaints about the

crowds, the bicycles, parking, golf carts etc in

the street and at other people's campsites,
Last year another chairman, friend of camping

neighbors came to me mid dinner, she had glass in

hand and as sweet as could be buttered me up and

asked if there was any way she could buy a glass

of our wonderful sangria. I saw this a mile away,

put my arm around her and said "sorry we do not

sell alcohol but for her she can help herself to

as many refills as she wished". THIS is a tiny

sample of the sort of relentless $#!7 we put up

with year after year. Last year was the topper.

Two years ago it resulted in Randi in the ER right

after Osh she nearly died. She ended up with a

stent and huge bills. Last year after Osh right

back in the hospital. A stress test and more

bills.
It's supposed to be camping folks, it's supposed

to be fun folks... it is not.
What makes it all worthwhile is YOU. All of you

people, and your families. Just seeing all of you

getting together, the smiles and laughter, the din

of conversation, people lining up for thirds and

fourths for campsite pasta? Those name tags we nag

you about? Imagine you came all the way here from

Israel, Europe, South America or had been lurking

on the net but never met anyone face to face, or

you're like Randi and I and can't remember to save

our lives, it sure helps with meeting new friends

or not embarrassing yourself with old ones or

finally thanking that person who was so helpful on

line, we count the blank name tags each year

before the dinner so we also have an accurate head

count.
Every year the gathering turns out to be

incredible and so worth it for all of our crew.

I saw the pain Randi was experiencing again last

year and was ready to say it was not worth it, but

the thanks and encouragement everybody gave made us

realize this is an event that must happen one way

or another.
We were slow getting this plan together because we

were both sick for an extended period of time

following Sun N Fun but we are good now.

So this year, please bear with us, we are making

an adjustment for just this year and we will

figure out what to do next year.

As for comments; what we need right now since time

is getting short, does this Jambalaya Jam thing

sound okay? ...are you interested? I know it's

different but it is the best we can do right now.
NO RSVP's right now please, just yays or nays and

as always, no vegan, no gluten free, no kosher, no

low carb or Millennial meals will be available but

it should be dolphin free.

If enough people are willing to take a chance on

this we will put out a formal announcement and

start taking RSVP's, if you RSVP me before that I

will ignor it and you will not be counted. Y'all

are terrible at following instructions.

Thanks, Chrissi and Randi

Would it be wice to plan for an external connection ready in the instrument panel? Then it would be very easy to connect a handheld in case of a radio malfunction, even with an electrical issue I could connect a handheld and still have a radio available.

If your antenna in the winglet and main coax run is operational, just connect the handheld to it with a coax pigtail extension.  I can easily reach 20+ miles using a handheld on the ground with a copper foil di-pole on a stick....  In the air, I’m betting it would perform the same as your panel mount for normal ops.

 

Just say’n.  Cheap and easy patch till your radio is fixed.

Home Built Camping.
EAA built a Hugh Jass covered 'pavilion' on the west side of HBC a few years ago. Concrete floor, couple of propane BBQ grills, 1-2 jumbo griddles, landscaping, ...

The old "kitchen sprayer" showers we loved are no more. The old "watch tower" still there, moved to near the pavilion.

Wow, sorry to hear about all of the issues. It was a great event and some were guilty of just showing up ( I'm one of the guilty ones) and not helping out. SORRY😔. Yea, I'm for it! I plan to be camped near the pavilion, so let me know if I can help.Don BerlinLongez N131DB

The Eleventh Annual CozyGirrrls Spaghetti Bash
......is not going to happen this year.

But WAIT, there's more...

(explanation at bottom)

*** INSTEAD ***
For the adventurous & diehards we are proposing
an alternative;

The First (& Last?) CSA/RAFE Jambalaya Jam.
......its simple, if you are a canard person you

should belong to CSA and support RAFE, their

sponsorship for this means nothing more than they

get to stand up in front of you while you eat and

they get to jabber at you, in the bigger picture

they represent all of us out there in the bigger

world so it's worth a listen.

Some of you have been lucky enough to sample
Bob Tilley's fine authentic Louisiana Jambalaya.

Bob and I are considering making a huge cast iron

kettle full, all you will need to bring is an

appetite and a chair (NO TABLES AVAILABLE) (and

maybe a small donation?).
We will provide the place and the food, some

sodas, ice and water. There should also be a

minivan available if a few souls wish to pass a

hat and make a beer run to Walmart. Trying to keep

this one simple and informal, less work, no

stress.
For those unfamiliar with the dish, Jambalaya is a

one-pot dish of chicken, pork, sausage & rice,

and some other things. It is somewhat spicy but

not hot. Goes great with beer if you bring some =)

And now, the rest of the story...

We know the Spaghetti Bash is important and has

been a great family event for Canardians, it grew

into something much larger than we had envisioned.
This year due to many issues, past and current we

do not have the valuable manpower or energy to put

on this event as it has been in the past. We were

going to not do it at all, then remembering the

simplicity of Bob's Jambalaya thought we might be

able to do it up at the nice new shelter pavilion

at the top of the homebuilt camping field since it

would be an informal get together of homebuilders

and many of them camping in said area. We just got

the word this morning from the EAA that this would

not be okay with them.
It takes a team to do the dinner, we have an

awesome team! This year two key members are unable

to be there, we would not attempt to do this

without them.
It takes a lot of begging to get the tables we

round up each year, when we announce the dinner we

always say we may not be able to get any tables,

last year there was a huge stink by a Chairman

that -we- had stolen their tables when in fact we

had no idea of the source or origin of said tables

but because said EAA chairman does not like Randi

they attempted to put her in a bad light.
It is important to know it is against EAA rules to

sell food or alcohol, period. There are venues

available, a list of caterers and purveyors with

liquor licences to provide such things. We have

hosted this party for the CSA for the last ten

years, originally intended to round up the few

early arrival lost souls looking for other canard

people and have a good evening of camaraderie. We

have asked for a minimal donation to cover costs

and anything extra has gone into the kitty for the

next year to add whatever pots and pans etc to

make this work and accommodate the expanding group,

this has worked well. Someone has been kind enough

to bring and donate beverages and even sangria

(thank you whoever you are).
Let it be known to keep peace on our street we

have always extended an open invitation to any and

all to join us, nobody excluded. But year after

year issues have been instigated, sadly two of

them are chairmen, that have resulted in at least

one major problem each year. They have called the

police (we're having a party), they have called

security (they are selling food and alcohol), they

have extensively lied to their friend who runs

campground security and we have been told by him

"he has heard all about what we are doing and we

are being watched", we get complaints about the

crowds, the bicycles, parking, golf carts etc in

the street and at other people's campsites,
Last year another chairman, friend of camping

neighbors came to me mid dinner, she had glass in

hand and as sweet as could be buttered me up and

asked if there was any way she could buy a glass

of our wonderful sangria. I saw this a mile away,

put my arm around her and said "sorry we do not

sell alcohol but for her she can help herself to

as many refills as she wished". THIS is a tiny

sample of the sort of relentless $#!7 we put up

with year after year. Last year was the topper.

Two years ago it resulted in Randi in the ER right

after Osh she nearly died. She ended up with a

stent and huge bills. Last year after Osh right

back in the hospital. A stress test and more

bills.
It's supposed to be camping folks, it's supposed

to be fun folks... it is not.
What makes it all worthwhile is YOU. All of you

people, and your families. Just seeing all of you

getting together, the smiles and laughter, the din

of conversation, people lining up for thirds and

fourths for campsite pasta? Those name tags we nag

you about? Imagine you came all the way here from

Israel, Europe, South America or had been lurking

on the net but never met anyone face to face, or

you're like Randi and I and can't remember to save

our lives, it sure helps with meeting new friends

or not embarrassing yourself with old ones or

finally thanking that person who was so helpful on

line, we count the blank name tags each year

before the dinner so we also have an accurate head

count.
Every year the gathering turns out to be

incredible and so worth it for all of our crew.

I saw the pain Randi was experiencing again last

year and was ready to say it was not worth it, but

the thanks and encouragement everybody gave made us

realize this is an event that must happen one way

or another.
We were slow getting this plan together because we

were both sick for an extended period of time

following Sun N Fun but we are good now.

So this year, please bear with us, we are making

an adjustment for just this year and we will

figure out what to do next year.

As for comments; what we need right now since time

is getting short, does this Jambalaya Jam thing

sound okay? ...are you interested? I know it's

different but it is the best we can do right now.
NO RSVP's right now please, just yays or nays and

as always, no vegan, no gluten free, no kosher, no

low carb or Millennial meals will be available but

it should be dolphin free.

If enough people are willing to take a chance on

this we will put out a formal announcement and

start taking RSVP's, if you RSVP me before that I

will ignor it and you will not be counted. Y'all

are terrible at following instructions.

Thanks, Chrissi and Randi--

Wow, sorry to hear about all of the issues.  It was a great event and some were guilty of just showing up ( I'm one of the guilty ones) and not helping out.  SORRY😔.  Yea, I'm for it! I plan to be camped near the pavilion, so let me know if I can help.

The Eleventh Annual CozyGirrrls Spaghetti Bash
.....is not going to happen this year.

But WAIT, there's more...

(explanation at bottom)

*** INSTEAD ***
For the adventurous & diehards we are proposing
an alternative;

The First (& Last?) CSA/RAFE Jambalaya Jam.
.....its simple, if you are a canard person you

should belong to CSA and support RAFE, their

sponsorship for this means nothing more than they

get to stand up in front of you while you eat and

they get to jabber at you, in the bigger picture

they represent all of us out there in the bigger

world so it's worth a listen.

Some of you have been lucky enough to sample
Bob Tilley's fine authentic Louisiana Jambalaya.

Bob and I are considering making a huge cast iron

kettle full, all you will need to bring is an

appetite and a chair (NO TABLES AVAILABLE) (and

maybe a small donation?).
We will provide the place and the food, some

sodas, ice and water. There should also be a

minivan available if a few souls wish to pass a

hat and make a beer run to Walmart. Trying to keep

this one simple and informal, less work, no

stress.
For those unfamiliar with the dish, Jambalaya is a

 one-pot dish of chicken, pork, sausage & rice,

and some other things. It is somewhat spicy but

not hot. Goes great with beer if you bring some =)

And now, the rest of the story...

We know the Spaghetti Bash is important and has

been a great family event for Canardians, it grew

into something much larger than we had envisioned.
This year due to many issues, past and current we

do not have the valuable manpower or energy to put

on this event as it has been in the past. We were

going to not do it at all, then remembering the

simplicity of Bob's Jambalaya thought we might be

able to do it up at the nice new shelter pavilion

at the top of the homebuilt camping field since it

would be an informal get together of homebuilders

and many of them camping in said area. We just got

the word this morning from the EAA that this would

not be okay with them.
It takes a team to do the dinner, we have an

awesome team! This year two key members are unable

to be there, we would not attempt to do this

without them.
It takes a lot of begging to get the tables we

round up each year, when we announce the dinner we

always say we may not be able to get any tables,

last year there was a huge stink by a Chairman

that -we- had stolen their tables when in fact we

had no idea of the source or origin of said tables

but because said EAA chairman does not like Randi

they attempted to put her in a bad light.
It is important to know it is against EAA rules to

sell food or alcohol, period. There are venues

available, a list of caterers and purveyors with

liquor licences to provide such things. We have

hosted this party for the CSA for the last ten

years, originally intended to round up the few

early arrival lost souls looking for other canard

people and have a good evening of camaraderie. We

have asked for a minimal donation to cover costs

and anything extra has gone into the kitty for the

next year to add whatever pots and pans etc to

make this work and accommodate the expanding group,

this has worked well. Someone has been kind enough

to bring and donate beverages and even sangria

(thank you whoever you are).
Let it be known to keep peace on our street we

have always extended an open invitation to any and

all to join us, nobody excluded. But year after

year issues have been instigated, sadly two of

them are chairmen, that have resulted in at least

one major problem each year. They have called the

police (we're having a party), they have called

security (they are selling food and alcohol), they

have extensively lied to their friend who runs

campground security and we have been told by him

"he has heard all about what we are doing and we

are being watched", we get complaints about the

crowds, the bicycles, parking, golf carts etc in

the street and at other people's campsites,
Last year another chairman, friend of camping

neighbors came to me mid dinner, she had glass in

hand and as sweet as could be buttered me up and

asked if there was any way she could buy a glass

of our wonderful sangria. I saw this a mile away,

put my arm around her and said "sorry we do not

sell alcohol but for her she can help herself to

as many refills as she wished". THIS is a tiny

sample of the sort of relentless $#!7 we put up

with year after year. Last year was the topper.

Two years ago it resulted in Randi in the ER right

after Osh she nearly died. She ended up with a

stent and huge bills. Last year after Osh right

back in the hospital. A stress test and more

bills.
It's supposed to be camping folks, it's supposed

to be fun folks... it is not.
What makes it all worthwhile is YOU. All of you

people, and your families. Just seeing all of you

getting together, the smiles and laughter, the din

of conversation, people lining up for thirds and

fourths for campsite pasta? Those name tags we nag

you about? Imagine you came all the way here from

Israel, Europe, South America or had been lurking

on the net but never met anyone face to face, or

you're like Randi and I and can't remember to save

our lives, it sure helps with meeting new friends

or not embarrassing yourself with old ones or

finally thanking that person who was so helpful on

line, we count the blank name tags each year

before the dinner so we also have an accurate head

count.
Every year the gathering turns out to be

incredible and so worth it for all of our crew.

I saw the pain Randi was experiencing again last

year and was ready to say it was not worth it, but

the thanks and encouragement everybody gave made us

realize this is an event that must happen one way

or another.
We were slow getting this plan together because we

were both sick for an extended period of time

following Sun N Fun but we are good now.

So this year, please bear with us, we are making

an adjustment for just this year and we will

figure out what to do next year.

As for comments; what we need right now since time

is getting short, does this Jambalaya Jam thing

sound okay? ...are you interested? I know it's

different but it is the best we can do right now.
NO RSVP's right now please, just yays or nays and

as always, no vegan, no gluten free, no kosher, no

low carb or Millennial meals will be available but

it should be dolphin free.

If enough people are willing to take a chance on

this we will put out a formal announcement and

start taking RSVP's, if you RSVP me before that I

will ignor it and you will not be counted. Y'all

are terrible at following instructions.

Thanks, Chrissi and Randi
