    Wow, when someone graduates around here there are lucky to find a dozen people they know.
    I may be wrong but that probably won't stop me from arguing about it.

    It was one of the bigger graduating classes, I think there were 14 this year. PreK thru 12 grade is less then 180 kids

    I hit three or 4 more then decide to get some gas head home to pound some more nails before the wife returns and spy one more gravel beach, with about 8 girls waving at me. In bikinis. I figure they must in in distress and should stop and see
    this is pretty short beach, with about 100 ft good beach, a huge swelled up spot and 100 more feet. Well, it took me 4 passes to get the speed right and timing down, but I made it for rescue purposes.
    In the end, they were doing ok with one kayak dedicated to beer. party girls A few of them wanted pix taken, so sure sounds good. Mr pilot, do you want us with our tops up or down? oh my...
    the girls of 100 ft beach

    Attachment 37834
    Jeeze Jim. Same thing happened to me. They were using there tops to flag me down so I landed to make sure they were ok. They wanted to know if I had any beer. They were out. With no beer I was useless. Ha

    Yes, a 180hp 172 on Amphi Wips. Factory seaplane.
    Based in KMGJ. Did water work on the Hudson river.
    Was lots of fun.

    My wife was not happy when I said I was buying the boat last May. I picked it up in Ct 2 days before Mothers Day. On the way home I stopped in a rest area and took a picture of the boat and then texted the photo to my 3 kids with this title. " Look what I got your mother for Mothers Day ".



    They were Happy for her getting a new toy.
    I think she's coming around to liking the boat, She picked out the towel before we went out.

    I have a 1969 Starcraft that is way below your level of care but I look forward to bringing it up to the class yours has. What fun! That is a nice boat! I bet you really like the higher sun cover.

    If you get lost while flying, don't try hail a cop. Pick up the first railroad you find and hug it until you get somewhere.

    Wish I was closer. It would be fun to fly my 97 year old Dad to it. He's a WW-2 vet. Took him to a reenactment in northern IN a couple years ago and he had a fun day. The participants enjoyed having him there. Those guys really get into it. Would recommend that anyone who has the opportunity to attend one of these.

    The Beaver belongs to my Dentist, I called him last night and told him to come to breakfast. He was going elsewhere but the weather wasn't good there so he showed up. It's one of the last ones made, factory turbine Beaver
