    Thanks for the map. That is just what I was looking for. Is the ultralight runway where the stol exhibition will be?  
    Larry where are you planning on setting up camp?
     
    thanks again

    Gunderson Thanks
    That is great information.  Is the light sport area where most of our group is camping?
    i am not having any luck finding a good map on the EAA site or elsewhere.

    I read the link on BCP it talks about Hercoliner but not what kind of glue or cleaner was used.  You think MEK would be adequate?

    According to the EAA in the ultralight area
    “Should not be a type certificated Vintage aircraft such as a Cub, Champ, etc.”so us taking a vintage 1948 170 doesn’t sound feasible   Is there any camping somewhat near there?  We are planning on getting there early

    Can we put a 170 in with you guys or will they frown on that?

    What is Trent using and has his results been any better than yours?
    Fred I watched the video and I only heard he sent them to a place in Idaho.  Which is good if it works because I live in Idaho  
    I will search for Randy’s write up
    thanks

    I am in this year as well. Going with my neighbor in his 170. Planning on staying for the week and camping if someone could save us a spot that would be great!

    26” bushwheel ?
    i have a chance to buy a set of 26” bushwheels  that have some bad spots on them for 300$ shipped they are not weather checked just spots worn through.   My thought is to buy them and spray the spots with bedliner. 
    Thoughts?
