    Finally broke down and bought a used log splitter and today's temp we're cool and a good day to try it out. I think it's time to retire my maul. What I split in 30 minutes would have taken me 3 hrs by hand.

    Geez Glenn - Now all you need is one of those gasoline powered chainsaws instead of your bow saw. Think of how much wood you could cut then.....

    I sense the force is strong in you Glenn, at least one extra day of flying's worth.

    Tom, I'm putting together a float flyin on Hinckley Res. at Jeffs new camp on Sat the 20th or 21st. Room to park about 20 floatplanes. And if the water stops rising a 500' beach is West a 1/2 mile away for BW guys. Afternoon BBQ or possible overnight, details later.

    600' of beach

    Zoom out. https://earth.app.goo.gl/fEgPh3

    That beach in the photo is a lot steeper then it looks and the water runs deep. The neighbors asked Jeff not to let anyone land on the steep beach anymore as it scared the crap outa everyone last time, and now that he owns land there now he doesn't want to piss anyone off. The beach to the West is fairly level and is for wheeled guys

    Tom, don't try taxiing up on that beach, you'll get the Twin Bee stuck. Then when you try to power off, it will keep tipping up on it's nose. Be content to put the gear down and just taxi into shallow water turning sideways when the wheels start rolling on the bottom. Approach the shore at an angle. Depending on the slope you may be able to get the tail high enough to get ashore without getting your feet wet.

    It's steeper then it looks, the water is probably 8 to 10' deep under the front of my floats

    First remove the copilot's control wheel while still out on the water.
    Then open the bow door, holding it open with the brace rod. This will offset the weather cocking effect of the big tail.
    Put the gear down for water drag. Then, depending on the slope the gear may also touch the bottom which will help if the wind is blowing.
    Leaving the beach will be awkward when nosed in particularly if the wind is not favorable. You will likely need a ground handler to get turned around.
    You could tail it in like Glenn's J-4. Using the hand pump slowly retract the gear. The tail wheel will come up first. Pump just enough to retract the tail wheel. Then it should be easier to lift the tail onto the beach. Though in this position you will have to be a monkey to get back into the cabin.

    Have fun and post a picture so that I can see how you made out.

    That thing comes with a basement. Throw your rowboat in there.

    LOL, I was flying with a tri-Pacer and made a group decision to search out food. That didn't work out either, the restaurant at Gfl is closed and ended in Saratoga getting food at a airport day thing.

    I was invited to NH16, Brookline, NH yesterday as PIC. Glad I had been in before as a passenger. You have to get as low as you dare over a swampy area and climb up the hill into the woods. Huge pines everywhere on both sides and a solid row of 60 footers at the top. Don't bang you tail on them as you turn around. One has a helpful stop sign. Sort of a paved version of home, but it must freak non-glider pilots the first few times with forest products filling the windscreen right to the top and above. Not too tough but you are committed.
    What's a go-around?
