"I hate to be a nag, but..."

I caught Van's five minutes after they opened the doors this morning. The last couple of nights have found me wide awake at 3:00 am, wondering what could possibly be wrong with my fuselage kit order. It's been six weeks since the original estimate date, and they are currently showing only an eleven week lead-time on the fuse kit on the Van's web site. That got me to wondering if somehow my order had been completely forgotten.

"No," she said, "it's still waiting on a center section."

Once I got off the phone, I started wondering just how critical this "center section" is, and why I couldn't get started on the kit while they gather up a center section to ship to me later. Via looking at some builder's blogs I determined that there was no hope of that: "Step one: Prepare F-1204 Center Section."

Well then.

They expect a shipment of center sections later this week. Where they're coming from, I have no idea. I'm think (hope!!) I'm near the front of the line, though.

It would have faster to have needed a kidney.
