Later we had a picnic with friends and family beside the Etowah River below the Allatoon Dam. It was great to see family and friends. I walked up a trail over the dam to the top of a hill that overlooked the lake.

My parents took me and showed me the shelter where we are going to have a reception after we return to Georgia from our honey moon. Helen and I are getting married in Dawson Creek BC and most of my family are not able to travel such a long distance.

I spent some time helping Jeff and DJ on the annual inspection of the Aerostar at the Collegedale Airport. We spent a large amount of time removing equipment from the plane that was unused. This allowed us to remove a fair bit of wireing and make things less cluttered. Below are some pictures of some of the locations from where equipment was removed.

|More open belly and wire bundle under the instrument panel.|
|One of the boxes of removed equipment.|
|The wingtips that were going to be added to the wings. The savage guys just chopped the wings off of an earostar.|
One of the times as I was driving between Collegdale and Kennesaw I stopped my Georgia Cumberland Academy and said hi to Doug Nesmith the boys dean at the school.
|Georgia Cumberland Academy. I spent four years here.|
|The props going back on the Aerostar.|
|The de-de-iced props.|
|These props are a bugger to safety. I spent some time on one prop, and Jeff and some other guy stayed up till midnight finishing the safety wire job.|
|Carmen Adventist School, I spent six years here.|
|The Marietta Adventist Church and Carmen Adventist School. This is the location of many past games of hide and seek.|
|Marietta Adventist Church, thank you guys for all your prayers and support.|

|The Wilson home, the white fluffy cat is named Cumulus Cloud. We call it CC.|
The visit ended short. I left June 15 with David and Becky Gates bound for Bolivia. Along the way I would get to see some more of the work that is being done in other places.
