Sounds like a lot of fun! I’m going to try to make it out, but a word of caution… my name is not Jose Jimenez. I hope that repeatedly reciting Shepard’s prayer will be enough to get hooked up!

If anyone is looking to fly out of KNUQ as a flight or element, let me know.

Sure, I need 30min to get situated. Want to meet up at KNUQ 32L EOR area? I’ll file a flight plan you can copy for intercept.

Please use SCREAMING CAPS sparingly. It distract from the content of your post more than anything else. It is ok to use caps for acronyms though.
