Hello all. I never been a member of many forums, but after perusing this site for the last few evenings, I figured I'd go ahead and join up.
It's been a while since I last flew a Cub, having been mostly flying Twin Otters, Skyvans, DC-3s and Pilatus Porters for the past few years, but there was a spell back in the 80s when I flew all over the continental US of A in a PA18-150 doing aeromagnetic surveys (real low and real slow) and whenever I was around home, which was in SLC, Utah back then, I played around in 1946 J-3 with a Continental 85 out front. Those were some of the best flying times of my 30 years of defying gravity.
I'll have to dig out the old photo albums and scan a few photos of those airplanes at some of the out of the way places I landed at during both work and play.
I learned to fly in a Luscombe and never have figured out them durn areoplanes with the tailwheel on the wrong end. I'm looking forward to geting to know a few of you folks who post here. I've sure enjoyed browsing through the various threads and they've surely brought back some fond memories.
This forum even jogged me into checking up on the N-number of my old SuperCub and I was happy to see its still on the FAA's records and evidently flying up in Alaska. I nearly broke down and shed a tear the day that fellow dropped a wad of cash on the desk at the old office and departed to the great north in the triple nickel.
