Tootsie’s, Aviat Aircraft & Freedom Arms.

This morning the Wyoming Gang journeyed over to Tootsie’s Pizza Restaurant for breakfast. The restaurant serves lots of good things other than pizza. I think everyone had omelets or eggs except me. I had the Freedom French toast. It was the best I have ever had. Good food and nice wait staff too. If you are in the area check it out.

Today we toured the Aviat Aircraft Plant in Afton, WY. A staff member took us through all the departments of the plant. We got to see how the plant produces the Husky and Pitts aircrafts. A very interesting tour and it was free. I was surprised to learn that there were only 35 employees.


Completed product, ready to go.





We saw the finished products first then went on to tour each department.

John and Gregg looking at the wing frame.


Donna, Bob, Keith, Molly & John listen to an employee explain the assembly of the fuselage.


An employee in the paint shop demonstrating how the materials are applied to the aircraft before it is painted. The fumes in this area were very strong. A person could get high in here. LOL

Our next stop was Freedom Arms in Freedom, Wy. Upon arrival the clerk started a video, answered our questions and brought out several guns for us to look at.


Wow, that’s a big gun.


I bet he is thinking, “Ok punk, make my day.” LOL


Looks like there is a new sheriff in town.


All these animals were hunted with guns from Freedom Arms. There were also a wall with a bear, a buffalo and a few other animals that I didn’t get a picture of.

Tonight the gang got together and played two games of Chase the Ace. I won a round and John won the other. It must be beginners luck. LOL We also played a round of 10 Penny. Gregg emerged the winner. The rest of us had some high scores. That’s ok we will do better next time.

Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
