    Glenn,

    How hard is the sand at Stillwater? Looks like the Stinson has small tires that seemed to be ok.

    What about the cannonsville reservoir? I flew up and around the Catskills a couple of weeks ago, and took a low level cruise thru the reservoir. Wanted to land just didn't know about the natives.

    Stillwater and the others we play on are water storage to maintain river level. Not drinking water supply like Cannonsville?

    Ultra rare weekend last weekend, the combination of rain on Friday and buying a tractor in Vermont resulted in a rare weekend off, and a stopover at Peaceable Hill Pheasant Preserve in Shoreham owned by our own Glenn Symon and wife Judy. Started off with dinner that he wouldn't let us pay for, then the next morning a few hours behind the Benelli and his capable dogs. I had forgotten how much fun it is to gun birds over a fine dog. I have met so many nice folks from this website, Glenn and Judy are no exception. Thanks Glenn it was great to shoot pheasants, BS about Sport Cubs, and spend a day with your great dogs and hospitality. What a great facility you have developed. I'll be back this time in the cub. Thx

    Dang, if we knew you were there we would have jumped over the hill and Joe and I could have " drove " some birds in your direction.

    That would be a hoot. Or a cackle as it was. Glenn has a beautiful strip. Then we could see who the really great shot is. Not me. Just ask the dogs. First time I have seen dogs roll their eyes

    Tom's not as old as I am, but I remember being young in Vermont, when temperature meant nothing. Now, a December breeze can give me a whole new outlook on the day. And I bet Tom is right about those short Alaskan days.

    In Vermont there are two types of cold, play in it cold and work in it cold. Play in it cold is for those who come to ski, snowmobile and generally sit inside with a hot toddy and bitch if the roads were not plowed for them. Work in it cold is the rest of us and I can assure you there is a difference. For the last dozen or so years I've curled up on those cold two dog nights falling asleep with visions of umbrella drinks and bikinis dancing in my head and being referred to as a snowbird. Up until just recently my thought was if I ever saw snow again it would be to soon, man how things can change. First came Super Cub Forum, (kinda like a kid daydreaming after reading every word in 1960's Outdoor Life or LL Bean catalog), next deciding on and purchasing my Sport Cub and finally Glenn, Joe and Jim and there perverted influence on me towards my purchase this week of a pair of Summit skis. So now only time will tell, I will either get used to drinking hot toddy's or I'll be trying to explain why I have a pair of skis in Florida. Thanks boys! By the way do they make a scotch toddy? Let it SNOW.

    Good stuff Glenn(40M)! I grew up just up the road from your place, but I think I had the opposite reaction. When there was a job to do the temperature was irrelevant aside from often making the task harder to accomplish. When we were done work and wanted to play... damn it got cold quick. But now, with your Sport Cub, the GJJ club and hot toddy's, it sounds like you're on the right path!

    Hope to join the bandwagon soon. My drumsticks are out of practice.

    Got to watch both Glenn and Joe, especially when they gang up on you as a team. Be careful because they do like to help others spend their money..... Have fun with the skis!

    Make sure you post pictures- of the plane on skis, not you in the bikini

    I suggested a few times that our local Borough should just stop plowing and buy everyone a set of snow shoes. Reduce the obesity issue, and the need for exercise classes.

    No one liked that idea, even though it was for 'green' support. Of course, I would be riding my sled!

    I had to attend a meeting 100 miles away from the farm yesterday. It was a bluebird day, 100 mile vis. There is an airport 2 miles from the office. Take the pickup, or take the cub. No brainer yesterday. On the way home, my dairyfarmer friend is in the middle of his field working on a plow. He farms in the middle of yuppie town so I couldnt sneak up on him or face going to jail. I only harassed him for a minute.
    Of course everyone has a camera today, and this is on my phone before I get home. Dang Joe and his ministry of smoke

    If that quaint town is anything like our quaint towns in Vermont a little red smoke yesterday would have been a nice touch.
    Good Morning Jim,

    SJ, I'm feeling more moderate already.

    Penobscot Bay Sunday

    Dan, Mike and I did a little flying today in and around Penobscot Bay.
    Weather was in the 50's with a light breeze; almost spring like.

    Shoot if I had known the cool kids were out playing I would have joined in. Looks great, is that Mr Mike back in the fight?

    Andrew and I messed around all day, then came home to the Super Moon rising over Fairground Field. Was a great day in Maine

    Sorry we missed you Jim.

    This was a bit of an impromptu fly in. I was in Maine to help a friend close his camp. Plan was to land at Dan's Friday but the wind was out of the NW 22 G 30 so landing at Dan's was out.
    Headed to Rockland with a runway facing the wind. Lucky to have 4 or 5 pilots from Penobscot Air run out to hold the plane down; fun having the stall horn blaring while parked.
    Mike was among the Penobscot Air pilots who helped me out. Those 206's seemed to do just fine on the ground in the wind.
    Sunday morning Dan wanted to retrieve a meteorite he found last week on dry lake bottom near Bar Harbour so we headed out as a flight of three.

    A nice tailwind had me home in two hours via Boston. Direct would have taken me out to sea 30 miles. Water temp is 44* so I opted for the land route.

    Always fun to fly in Maine.
    Thinking the next time I see you we might be on skis?

    If you were flying around here last Friday, hats off to you. For the past 2 weeks the wind has howled everyday, feels like its straight off an iceberg. Since Friday, the wind has died. Yes to the skis, wont be long now.

    My wife sent me this pix today, she saw it on Facebook. Beautiful family, except they let Wilford Brimley on the end come to the wedding. Didnt know he owned a tie, cleans up real nice. Kids got their looks from mom

    Appears to be a pretty good breeze too. We're not quite ready for 6", so feel free to hold it back at your place.
