for the fork lift. Yesterday we lifted the six truss pieces over to the hangar pad and stood the two door header pieces up in place. The trusses and header are now bolted together and the fork lift man is scheduled for Tuesday morning.
John took the train from Whitefish to Seattle last night and is planning to bring the Champ over on Sunday (which happens to be his birthday :). So I am here in Eureka doing my own thing for a couple of days. We've left Monday open just in case John needs an extra day to get the airplane here due to weather or some other unforeseen circumstance. The forecast is for clear skies through the week, so we figured now was the time to do this. If he is here on Monday, we'll go to the airport and organize the lumber for the next step. We'll put the lumber up on the side walls which will help stabilze the whole structure after the trusses have been lifted and bolted into place. Then we'll start on the back wall. So far everything has gone well with no major problems. Keeping our fingers crossed that Murphy's Law does not kick in here!
