    Thanks. We are still debating 29s, 26s or 8.50 x 6 on the mains. The smaller tires would be a little risky but are so much lighter and cheaper.....everything is a compromise.

    Tis the season where any big tires are problematic. Frosty gravel sticks to tires and gets thrown over the top doing damage to the prop. Even with smooth Bushwheels. Dammit. Time to switch to 850s and wheel skis. C'mon, snow.

    I've been finding plenty of snow this year. It's definitely spring conditions up there but good enough to ski.

    Cool. You using the go-fast plane and wheel skis?

    a friend landed on the lake at his place not far north of Anchorage and reported 8 1/2" of smooth black ice. Also cool but I wouldn't want to go first. 😄

    Affirmative. The cub will be on straights this week and I'll use the grass if that's all I have. WD40 on take off.

    I'm glad somebody's having some fun. Seriously. I'm going stir crazy. The tweener season is bad enough but this one's dragging on far too long.
