    I've got a pair of old Rossignols that would probably work for your weight. no payment needed, just get video of them flying on your -11.

    Roger Bates a local legend around central NY who owned over 100 airplanes in his life,40 of those being Vagabonds, used water skis for quite a few years when he was younger. Died a few years ago at 96 and still had 5 planes flying, 2 Vags, skyranger, Kitfox and a 51 Pacer still wearing the original cotton that Piper sent it out the door in.

    All dressed up with not too many places to go. Yet anyway.

    Hoping for for a winter like last year. Put the skis on today and made a few landings.

    While I was down south my 12” of snow kinda shrunk from the warm temps and rain. But still enough for me to fly tomorrow. Not sure if there is anywhere to go but at least I’ll get off the earth for a bit.

    Fly to Fairbanks. It's snowing and 3-6" more coming this week. No daylight but who needs that with good LED headlights?

    Pete, about 100 miles NW of me. It on the East end of Lk Ontario and they get dumped on till the lake freezes over. Nothing for them to get 4' a day. Scott Revoir (NC2252M) here lives a few miles South of there and they don't get as much snow, only about 300" That area gets it when it's a SW, W, NW or North wind. We get Lk effect when its NW or North winds. It's been snowing here for a month but didn't have any Frost in the ground.

    We got around 3 feet this week, it has settled down to about one and half, now we need the lakes up north to freeze up and let the fun begin. I went snowmobiling Friday up on tug hill, just east of Lake Ontario and there was some spots with a fresh 5 feet. Hopefully the lakes up north build ice before they get hit hard with snow. Scott...

    No we got ours the day before, Friday. And not as much as you. But I like the forecast that came out today. A 3-day winter storm warning and then some nice below zero temps that should freeze the open water. 😀 I’m a ready.
