Off to the side of the massive field of homebuilts, you can find a shack that might have well been built by Paul Poberezny himself.
This is the home of the many volunteers whose task is to park the incoming homebuilts throughout the week. You know; the hard-working men and women on scooters and golf carts that help you from the taxiway to a tie down spot. On the side of the building we found two signs that are important to note – especially this time of the week.
I was joking with the Chairman of Homebuilt Parking last week, asking if I could borrow his scooter. His response? “Sure—you can have the bike, but you have to take the hat, the walkie-talkie….and the eight hour shift that goes with them all!”
And finally, we all have an image of the ideal parking spot, and while sometimes, you get exactly what you want, there are other times when the universe decides that you are just going to have to put up with something else. In that case, the volunteers – in a very understanding way – will point you at the small sign that says that they just don’t have the time to listen to something they can do nothing about.
