Our new "Gemini" two seater.

As some of you know, Traci and I are building an airplane in our home hangar here at Crest Airpark.  Do we ever have enough projects around here to work on?  In addition to building the new Astro-shack, working on growing a home business, maintaining the yard, and managing a bunch of cats.
Our latest addition to the airport home is a 1973 Cessna 150L that we just picked up from Prosser last week.   The plane flies great, has a strong engine with fairly low time, and best of all will get us airborne and make us feel like we fit in with our other flying neighbors around here! 
It does need a little cosmetic work mainly replace cracked panels in the cockpit (very common with these vintage planes) and some other improvements.
Eventually, we may add commercial insurance so I can do a little flight training in it, but that's later on as we work out ideas and get a few projects done around here.

Hi Tom,

What are some good places on the Eastside to watch the sky?

Thanks!

As far from Seattle as you can get! I always say "go East" to find the darker skies. There is a pretty good place at Rattlesnake Lake near North Bend that astronomers often go to view. See here - http://archive.seattleastro.org/webfoot/jun01/pg2.htm The "old site" is open anyone.
