We made it home from Austin to Houston, TX safely transporting the Lockheed Lodestar (a.k.a. the Beat Up Bastard). We managed to make it back in without getting any more tickets from the police. I would like to thank all of you that put in $2 in the bomb to help us pay off the tickets that we got on the trip out there. We had a great time and I hope you enjoyed your chance to sit in the cockpit of this piece of WWII history. I really appreciate ya'll. Jason Barnett P.S. On the way home we stopped in Brenham to eat lunch. When we came out of the restaurant there was an old man silently looking at the plane. When we walked up, he told us that he had fought in the Battle of the Bulge in 1944 and that he was captured by the Germans and held prisoner for 6 months. It was hair raising to hear his emotional story. The plane stirred up a lot of forgotten memories from the 86 year old man. Hearing his stories and seeing all of the people having a good time in the plane at the Round Up made up for any trouble the cops gave us along the way. Man what a good time I had!
