Great idea for next year. Winter on Skis and Summer on Floats. I bet it would sell. now a days they are easy enough to put together and get printed. "Bird Men of the North East".

Over on GliderForum.com there was one thread that could have been part of a glider calendar if you remember.

Haha. Yeah.

Some would accuse me of trying to make money with my members pictures.
No no... I am all set. 2016 we'll have a round of shirts and hats if I am lucky.

:lol:

That's a good looking rack. Our deer up here in Southeast, AK do not compare.

A few of us met for breakfast at Duanesburg ( 4B1 ) Sunday. The new owners are working hard to get the place back in shape after years sitting in limbo. Tough road, soon to open full time fuel station cost $40k to get approved and that's with used equipment. Will be ski friendly

We did Duanesburg again on Sat morning. Mary Beth the new owner has some cool toys.

Image

Weather forecast was for freezing rain and snow on Sat night and Sunday so flew the J4 out to Island Bobs Sat afternoon.

Image

Flew back in the Cub on Sunday and we put everybody away for the year. I need to fly more, only got 56 float hrs this year.

Turkey day got a few of us out for breakfast. My buddy Ray who sold Dave that stunning Pa11 2 years ago and has regretted it ever since has a new ride. This is his C90-8 Champ that we found up in Old Town Maine 2 months ago. It was Marc Egans ( thanks Marc ) and Ray is like a kid with a new toy. It's got a seaplane prop and is a rocket ship. Hope I'm having that much fun at 82.

Nobody showed up at Dburg on Sat morning so I had breakfast with the Triumph bike guy's. Next I headed East to the Timmy Skunk Works where all kinds of secret happening are going on.

Then I stopped at Algonquins strip and helped to get his chickens off the nest.

Sunday we headed up to Poland to Jeffs for a great breakfast and then played on Hinckley Res for awhile. Jeff had a freshly minted FA Super Hornet pilot in the back seat and we wanted to show him some off airport flying, his head was spinning when he left.

Next I headed out by Syracuse and stopped in a Brians to see what was going on. rearranging the hangar furniture.
