    Thanks Chris, but I think I am going to skip EWR all together and do 2 days at JFK. Anyone else going out?

    Hey John, the best time for Asian departures at HoBe is from 10am to 1pm. I'd come out and join you but I have a lot of work I need to get done. Hope you have a good time!

    Thanks Gordon, i had a great day today, even with an overcast sky. But, I do have one more question. I went to Bayswater today just to check it out. From what I saw, it didn't look like a very nice neighborhood. Would it be safe to park along the street?

    It is a shady area but I've never heard of any problems there.

    the immediate area around bayswater is not shady
    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do

    True, it's not shady like the neighborhoods you drive through to get there, but it is quite strange, in a Deliverance sort of way...little kids running around the street naked...houses that look like they're about to fall over...curious stares whenever an "outsider" passes by. :-)

    lol. Well if they are using a runway and we get a spot where we can use 100mm i'm in. If not I cant join unless anybody has an extra camera that is useable for that range. Though cause of the winds I can easily say the 31's will be in use all day tomorrow. Wind is supposed to pick up again. Btw be sure to bundle up well cause its going to be really cold again. I would really like to join in i'm eager to get some air shots and meet you guys.

    If that indeed does happen its prob during the summer. I think even there smart enough not to freeze themselves.

    Thats a little exageration, I wouldn't be concerned going there. Its a great spot and I've never had a problem there.
