    Keep an eye out for this subspecies of the Tazmanian Devil.
    It has been documented on film but is rarely seen in the wild.

    Broken terrain, hills, bush, and open areas...also good Thylalcine habitat that has probably never seen human intrusion in the last hundred years.

    Remote open areas. Is the Thylacine forever gone or does it hold on in these remote areas?

    More pics coming...

    Flinders and other islands NE Tasmania. I made several cross country trips here. There are about a half dozen landing strips and one commercial airport on Flinders. Truly a paradise, but be careful in the beautiful waters, great whites sharks are about and they grow big here!

    FJ40 to the rescue! The best. I miss mine terribly. Built a Jeep later on and learned how poor a substitute it was compared to the Landcrusher.

    Landcruisers are great. However, do NOT watch this video: https://youtu.be/DYyhbHsBffE you might not get that next plane...

    And big tiger snakes Dave. Don't worry about the sharks.

    Exclamation 18 mph cub

    [QUOTE=L18C-95;660558]No 18mph Cub but there was a movie about the critter

    Shock Ultra stall speed is 18 mph (said to be true, not indicated)

    Anyway, we'll see perhaps but when I can travel back to Tasmania I have 40 field cameras to check and will be bringing over another 150...Hard project,
    but I'm not dabbling around...and we have recent sightings...

    Thanks...hopeful the vaccine will reopen international flights a lot more. I'm sure many in this forum are also anxiously waiting for their own adventures to fully resume.

    In the meantime, I expect to to a bit of flying in northern AZ out or Cottonwood where I can rent a Foxbat (also known as the Aeroprakt)..It's not a Cub but has some STOL ability..recently flew from Cottonwood to Williams and then over the Grand Canyon and back. Beautiful area and the ditch is massive indeed!

    Hope everyone is flying to the extent possible, helps keep our sanity in these trying times...
