For what it's worth, I found some barenekd posts on Guzzitech but the latest one was back on Dec 6, 2014. :(

Sure hope he's all right.

That's good to hear.

Knowing about his past riding incidents, I was a little concerned.

I'm BA-ACK! Sorry, no crashes or other excitement, at least on motorcycles.
Actually most of my absence has been due to computer crashes. I had my main one expire one Saturday morning, and I'vebeen installing hardware, programs, and backup stuff since then. I bought a used Dell from Goodwill and I had to put in extra hard drives with all my old files on. One of the RAM sticks is dying on it so I ordered some upgrade stuff.
It came with Windows 7 Home and was installed with 64 bit option. I wanted to install my Windows 7 Professional 32 bit, but the machine claimed what I had on there was a later version than mine and it wouldn't let me use it.
I ad too much other stuff to do without worrying about reformatting the HD and then not being able to install the older stuff, so I just went with what is on there. However, some of my vintage software wont run with the 72 bit OS, so I've had to upgrade a lot of stuff and some has just been a PITA.
But the time I've had to put into getting this thing running properly has pushed back a couple of other projects for my model airplane guys that should've been done last month, so now I'm just trying to get that stuff finished.
I've done very little riding in the last month or two.
But I do appreciate you guys thinking about me, and I am OK. I'll be back a little more often when I get done with the backlog!

It's good to see your back.

The Sterling Newport 28 that's hanging from my ceiling above my head can quit worrying about you now.  ;D

Don't worry Bare, I'm pretty sure he means "you're" back!  ;D

That sterling model must go back a ways...

Don't be too sure.

It's good to see his back so I can get a good line up on his butt to give it a quick kick for not posting anything for over 3 weeks.

That said, your right.  It probably should have said, "It's good to see you're back."

You're also right about the Newport.

I built it over 30 years ago and flew it about 4 times before retiring it.
It's powered by a Fox 25.

It has succeeded in doing what few control line airplanes ever accomplish.  It, along with a Sterling Fokker D7 I built about the same time has survived the experience.  ;D
