If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before.

Thank you to all you folks who welcomed me and made me feel I belonged immediately. Frankly, I was surprised at the hospitality of SLKWorld members. I really didn't expect to receive so many greetings from you.
As suggested by some of you, I have updated my profile to the extent that I can without compromising my privacy. You know how it is these days... unfortunately, you never can be too careful what you post on the internet. At any rate, for those of you who are in FB and want to connect, I go by the same username. I also joined the FB page of SLKWorld.
Haven't had time to browse through all the links you sent. I am sure they are all as informative and helpful as the one that I did browse through quickly - re: greasing the vario roof. A stupid question though: How do you get the roof to go to position 2(?) ?. Am sure the answer is in one of the other links you sent. Just haven't had time to go through all of them.
Unfortunately, the grease you speak of is not available here. There's silicon spray and WD40 though. Wonder what else I can use that will be as effective.
At any rate, many, many thanks for the informative and helpful hints.
Thanks for the welcome. Interesting to know that your wife lived here for a time. Where did she study here and what year? When you do get to revisit, be sure to send me a note and I would be happy to hook up with you.
