I can not wait for March. It will be so fun to see old friends and visit a “boneyard” in Arizona in a few weeks. Then in April I have a BBQ run as well as the FTU in Vegas. May I do my first of a few 250 SkyMile MQM runs. Summer is mostly up in the air for me (well not on a jet, yet). But hey if you happen to have missed the January or February or March or April or May or June or July or August’s, give them a peek why don’t ya! – René
