Stepped away from the build but got the engine ordered

The past couple weeks have been a blast..  Bekah and I stepped away from everything and enjoyed ourselves in Hawaii..   A good time for me to prove to the world that I do get away from work and the airplane for the important times.  We had our 5th Anniversary in Hawaii..  It was great...

I completely stepped away from the airplane..  But that point might be argued, due to the Dynon, PSE, and Vertical Power Install Manuals that I had printed and ready to review during the trip.  Bekah read her books while I freshened up on my install intelligence..  Worked great..   Also, I was able to get the engine ordered from Aero Sport Power..  I won't tell you the cost of this thing, but I can assure you it is more than you think.   Probably about 3-4 times more than you think.   Maybe even more than that..  Those who are building know what I am talking about..

Below are the Specs..  It should be here in late Jan.
