There was no information in the log books that detailed the condition of the engine or the latest overhaul time. Completely checked out then rebuilt and ran. These two fellows were amazing to talk with and hear all about their amateur built aircraft.

I made contact with a flyer who lives there and he agreed, he and another homebuilt aircraft owner would show us their airplanes and hangars. The view from the plane as I headed NW was of colorful farm fields  in shades of green to the pleasing bright yellow of canola fields scattered across the horizon.
