Bob I'm starting to realize that if I keep posting great pictures that you will never leave home.

Bob is busy writing his basic med article for Seaplanemagazine.com - but some of your Greenville pics are enticing again. I'll use your "use anything you want" excuse if thats alright with you...

Glenn,

Great photos as always. I guess you have lost a great amount of weight! Seems like you have given up lunch?

Can't wait to see pictures from you adventures this weekend coming up Glenn. Always something interesting and beautiful. Finally made a bracket for my Drift HD Camera from the drawing you sent, so maybe Monday I can get some video. I will be on my way up to Harriman and West Airport in Massachusetts.

I enjoy going to Rhinebeck. Haven't been there in a while though. I had helped Bill King move his planes around to and from there over a few year period. Glenn, is Bill's son still active?

The Aerodrome is back in it's full glory again. Awesome show today. Fantastic to see it again being run by a well knit group who's heart and soul are keeping it alive.

Big day for me today. I got my SES in 05 and flew every summer/fall except last year when I sat out for repairs. Most flights were after work or on the weekend. Most were less then an hour long with a couple TOs and landings.
Logged my 1000th float hour today. :cowwave:

That I great Glenn, congratulations. I didn't take you as a Logging Guy. How many hours do you add to that for your ski and wheel times in the last 12 years? I was only getting in about 100 hours a year, but now with BasicMed, I am about 25 per month.

I could do 25hrs a month if someone was paying for the fuel also ;-) I do 180 to 220 hrs a year on wheels/floats/skis.

Most of my flight time has someone else paying for the fuel as well as me. So those times I fly by myself or just for me, is already paid for.

Looks like a fun trip. Great pictures as always Glenn. Where and how do you get fuel on these excursions? What are you doing / using, to stop having the prop show up in your photos out the windscreen?

Friday before dark I flew North to meet up with Jeff and Joe at the cabin by Swanson's dam.

Image

We had a great dinner including some off Jeff's moose he got in Ak last fall, we might have bullsh!ted and drank too much by the fire.

Image

Next morning we headed east for breakfast

Image

Image

We got lessons from Joe on proper sailing form
