"Cold" is a very relative thing to us Canadians... Today's high in Anaheim is forecast to be 60 F. That's about 60 degrees warmer than it is here right now... :up:


Long range forecast calls for warming temps next week (up to 71F).


And before you go sayin' it gets cold in CO too, I know, but at that altitude, the humidity is much lower. Try 0 degrees F @ 85% relative humidity. You can put on as many layers as you want, you still freeze yer assets off ! :huh:

The dart stand always seemed to have just about every employee of the company there , gave the impression of beeing a lot larger company that it was . Wonder if things have changed much after the takeover , are they still coming out with new products like they used to ?. Std Aero and Acro_helipro parties are usualy good the last EC one I went to in Anneheim was dissapointing , in some sort of kids discovery centre and huge lines for booze. Wont be there this year though sob sob.

Well, followed someone's advice and hung around the DART booth near the end of the day. They had a plasma screen with the game on. Around 4 o'clock the beer showed up. When the show closed at 5pm, they announced it, turned down the lights, and invited people to leave. No one moved at the DART booth ! There wer about 3 minutes left in the first half. The beer ran out just after 5, but still no movement... Finally, just as the half-time show started, someone pulled the plug on the TV. That's when people started shoving off. :(


BTW, DART have these kick-*** barstools made of skid-tubing. The seat is an upside-down bearpaw. They're great ! They're thinking of adding them to their next catalog, but at 500 bucks a pop, I don't think they'll sell that many... :blink:


Did I miss anything ?.... oh yeah ! Lot's of nice helicopter thingies everywhere ! :up:


Most impressive by far has to be the Forrestale Skycrane on display. I rode in Chinooks when I was in the army, but this thing is so much more impressive... :shock:


There's also a 204-based experimental gunship on display (204-SS I think). It has five Gatling guns ! It looks like a mock-up. Don't know if it was ever a serious project. I<ll try and snap a couple pics of it tomorrow...
