Hello everyone. I'll try to keep things updated here as well as I can. I'm here at Hodges Hobbies, located between Andersonville and Americus GA. I'm a few days early for an annual event called Hodges Hobbies All Electric Fly In, or HHAEFI for short. I travelled up from my home in Santa Rosa Beach FL, stopping in DeFuniak Springs to pick up my brother, the "Chipmunk". All in all about a 5 hour driving time. We arrived to a somewhat soggy scene. This was not going to stop these guys from getting several flights in anyhow. There were flying wings, some "secret weapon" combat planes, and even Snoopy had taken to the air.

Of course, many of the guys we have come to know as friends were there. They are always much happier to see my brother, than me. I try not to read too much into that. :D

We were able to get our tent set up, underneath an "EZ-UP" style canopy, air mattresses inflated, and night lighting situated. We joined a few of the guys for a dinner at Zaxby's, and the Chipmunk inhaled the chicken sandwich, even while anticipating a scramble dog from Munroes the next day.

A few hours of BS under a camper's awning, solving the worlds problems, and relishing in the stories of RC justice, was a perfect way to end the night. The Chipmunk and I went to our respective air mattresses and called it a night.

Flying, Rain or Shine

Thanks Chad.

We haven't even started the event yet. Tomorrow is the beginning of HHAEFI. I'll be shooting more with my better camera for that. Unfortunately I don't have the internet access needed to load that. So, the higher quality stuff will not be posted until I get back home.

Yea the links aren't working Monkey. At least for my IPhone they aren't. I will try again with the laptop when I get it out of the camper. It is still hooked to my truck from when I came home last night .
