Those amazing men and their flying machines -- a few years ago, Bruce, Scooter and I traveled the east coast and landed in Kitty Hawk. Can't say much for the Outer Banks (just doesn't compare to the Oregon coast - if one were to do a comparison list) but, seeing the spot were Wilbur and Orville did their thing was impressive. We walked the markers, enjoyed the Wright Bros. center and marveled at those amazing men and their flying machines.

Scooter has built a few glider planes in the past with record breaking results (I think the longest airborne attempt was 2 minutes before a crash and burn). Recently, he rediscovered this model hobby. So, with a little bit of wood, a little bit of glue and a lot of determination he's taking to the skies, again. And, remember folks, if you give your mum some photos --- they're going to get scrapped.
