Joe and I went up to Speculator for breakfast on Sat

Image

Then to Sport Island to meet up with Tim the Jim

Image

Image

Then Joe and I went to Capt Nauties

Image

We ran into a few flurry's on the 30 mile trip back to my place, had to hide Joe from the snow for a while

Image

Image

Went to the pancake breakfast at the Ames FD today, landed in the hayfield behind the church. They do between 1000 to 1300 breakfasts by 1pm. Lots of fun but you have to get there by 8:15 or the line is out the door.

Between the squalls

So far winter here sucks for ski flying but making the best of it. Sap House opens soon.

What a wimp-ass winter you're having; don't even need skis. I'm sure the ice castle is neat, but my blood has thinned out to suit the southern climes. I couldn't take it anymore in the cold. When it drops below 60 down here we have to get out the winter clothes. I hope it warms up for Bob's fly in.

Joe landed at my place and we flew up to Speculator together. I had no snow so had to go on tires. Picked up Ken, Frank and Cliff along the way.

Left there and went to Big Moose for the drag races ( left camera in plane )

Then to Raquette Lk for lunch and they were cutting ice to fill the restaurants ice house.

We ate in the boat

Looks like fun. When I was a kid my family used to go tenting at Gloden Beach campsite on Raquette lake. We did that a number of times each summer nearly EVERY year from before I could walk, I think, until my dad died when I was 16 years old. It was the best times of my life. There used to be an old bus that came around the campsite from the Raquette Lake store that sold provisions to the campers. One of the most popular items was that ice from the lake. It was a penny a pound. A 25 pound chunk would last a couple days in a good Coleman cooler.

I know it's only Thusday morning but Saturday looks like it might be good flying day. Got a foot of snow yesterday so it's time for some needed ski time in the Northeast. We can either meet at the Saphouse or Speculator at 9am for breakfast. The ice castle is up and open so work our way North to Saranac Lake then back to the Adirondack Hotel in Long Lake or the Inn at Stillwater for lunch.
