Back in the 70s one of my friends had a early 60s CJ5 with a 325hp 396 Chevy in it, it had an overdrive also. It had 2 short shifters and 2 tall shifters. He was so fast he could split shifts while going sideways. Scary doesn't even come close to what it was like to be a passenger in it. All Jeeps are fun as long as they run

Farmboy needed some ski rigging parts so I headed out to meet him at the County airport halfway.

Image

Original plan was for me to land between in the grass but the big airport had a couple inches of packed snow so decided to land on the runway, did a couple touches to make sure I wouldn't grind to a stop and landed and taxied to the fuel farm parking.

Image

Pete's new ride is a keeper

Image

Image

Stopped at Rays

Image

Image

Then headed up on the hill to play in 18" of fluff

Image

Must have done 15 landings it was so much fun

Image

Flew to after 5pm. Awesome

Image

We have someone new to play with. Eric Dorr on lake Plesent has the Marina there. It's in an old Goose hangar

Image

He bought a C90 8F on EDO 1400 from Canada a couple months back. He's looking for wheel gear if anyone knows of some

Image

Boatyard firewood

Image


Had to head home

Image

When it got down to less then a half mile it's time to quit

Image

Even the Amish headed home

Looks great Glenn as always.

I talked to Don Simmons today and as soon as I am signed off by my doctor come May 1st, I will be partnered with him in the Sedan. I did not know it is now at Island Bob's in the hanger. We will be looking for a set of skis for it for the 2017/18 winter season.

Maybe next winter I can get some ski instruction from you. For 6 weeks this summer I will have the sedan all to myself as Don will be going away.

Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire has a FAA certified ice runway for a few weeks each winter. Only one in the country. Almost 200 miles each way for me on skis. Great day even though I was only going 43 mph for awhile heading home.
Stopped at Grass Patch Aviation at NH07 first


Image

Then over the hill to Alton Bay

Awesome day
