FLINNFLOAT wrote:Good morning, everyone. I guess I am the newest member of this forum, having just joined and been approved, even though I am not a seaplane pilot. I learned to fly back about 1957 after the bug bit with an intro flight in a USAF Navion, while in college. I obtained my Private Pilot certificate, and bought my first plane, a Bonanza, which I sort of used in business. As time went on, I acquired MEL and instrument ratings, and have owned some other planes, including a Twin Comanche and a Beech Baron. My last plane was a Montana Coyote kit, which I started but never finished. Somewhere along the line, I managed to get in 4.3 hours of floatplane instruction one year at Oshkosh, but I never finished the rating. Now, due mainly to the press of other things on my time, I haven't flown anything for several years. I still love airplanes and this year will be my 23rd at Oshkosh, I believe. While I like to see what is going on at the main base, I spend a lot of time at the Seaplane Base. This year, I will be volunteering as Point Controller on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so maybe I'll be flagging some of you in and out. This will be by umpteenth year volunteering there, and at least the fourth or fifth as Point Controller. When I'm not working, I like to wander around taking pictures, so you might end up in my lens, too. Hope to meet some of you there.

Jim, I'd 2nd the Seeley Lake idea. I've only been there snowmobiling in the winter, but it's beautiful country for sure! I think there's a seaplane base there & an airport. We had a lot of fun there & I bet you'd be able to find a cabin to rent. I think we were at 4000' in town & rode up from there.
