    Hi Eric,

    I have my medical appointment on Thursday - so if weather looks good - I might try to make this one... Have you been to any of the previous events - any issue getting in and out with so many planes showing up ???

    Yeah - that was my concern - I was counting the 2012 arrival pix and they show more than 100 planes (not a single baby Beech among them) - I checked out the satellite images of the airport and it doesn't look like they have a great deal of room - parking could be really cramped...

    They have a lot of grass alongside the runways, so that might be a possibility.

    Just spoke to someone who was at it last year and they have grass they put the planes in and people directing them.

    You guys going if we have good weather ?

    Funny - last time I heard Smoketown mentioned was in an AOPA magazine article about a convicted pilot/drug smuggler serving time... Since he was already incarcerated - he shared his story from a pilots perspective... Smoketown was his East coast distribution point... He lived in California - made his pickup near the Mexico - then flew East... It was definitely an interesting read - he did it for many years - prior to being caught...

    Too early in week to confirm for Saturday, but if nothing else going on will probably give it a shot.
