Home Page  The primary purpose of this web site is to document our progress and processes of building a Van's RV9/RV9A aircraft.  To see the latest work in progress click on the 'Latest Work' link at the left.

Our garage/shop/hanger started out in Plano Texas.  That's north of Dallas in suburbia land.  The home of our hearts is in New Mexico where we have now moved to.

We do have other interests as well as building aircraft and as we find the time we will attempt to document those other fun things as well. 

Our travels links will attempt to document our diversions from the aircraft building process.

Ok, so there have been a lot of diversions from building - like usual mostly life.  A move and a new job top the list.  Also, settling into that great laid back southwestern life style!
