    We've met previously at a contractor's house though I doubt if she remembers. No, it isn't gated and is next to White Cliffs.

    Since it now appears all coasts are involved, the time should be clarified. 12PM local, central or eastern.

    Word came in that the helicopter won't be flying. Apparently it's going to be too gusty tomorrow.

    If anyone has a private helicopter feel free to PM me.
