    Looking north. Track log landing to the south.
    Landed slightly uphill towards road, rolled out along road to barn.

    Overhead shot looking southeast, seeing Tom parked in the summertime VIP lot. Roger said we can't cross the road tomorrow - fence or wet or something.

As mentioned the side slant on the hill was a little more than expected but no problem.I'm thinking the current LZ conditions might be muddy and soft, I would most likely do a recon drag. Seems like the weather between here and there will be a no go for me tomorrow.

    It's easy, fly towards Santa's ( VT06 ) and head east 1 mile or head towards Pilgrims ( 2NH5 ) and head west a mile

    I live in Walpole NH, but it was dark when I got the word of a Stewart and John food flight so I didn’t get a chance for a field condition report. I expect most of the snow is gone, but not all and a soft top above the frozen ground. If it doesn’t work out, stop by my hangar at KVSF, Springfield VT and we can get some local sandwiches. Bill

    You guys are killing me, I just went out this morning and snow blowed my runway off so maybe I can fly again by May . Plowed north of my driveway a while back but wifey said I needed to put the insurance back on before I get in the plane so guess I'll just sit here and sulk.

    Another fun day in northern Vermont. Took a student pilot up and showed him the fun that can be had. Then stopped by for his kids to see. He’s definitely got the bug now!

    Winds weren't light and variable as predicted until this evening, but had a good time anyhow.
    Good to see the showing of pilots - Thanks to Joe's buddy Scott for coming up in his Rans, and Brian and crew from Crow's Island in the Husky and Gyro.

    I got distracted testing out some oil temp ideas after getting back home so I forgot the gopro at the plane, but here's a couple inbound shots at the farm, in the field with no side-hill traction. Douten, this is so you can remember what it's like.

    Forgot to mention - Joe, Scott and I flew over Santa's (VT06) on the way out, and Joe said he was either waving a shotgun or a big burly arm at us, so I said go ahead and land first, and if no holes appear in your wings I'll land too.

    Turns out Dave Brewer and his wife... oh darn Joe, I've forgotten already... Tracy? Lisa? ... are great people, happy to have us land and enjoy their strip. He has an Aeronca L4 which he would like to sell, says low time and good condition. And, as they are planning on moving south, if you're looking for an airstrip in southern Vermont, this would not be a bad one to own. There is a community solar panel patch off the east side of the runway that they own 8 panels of, (leased land to GMP probably) and therefore have no electric cost at the house.

    If a pilot doesn't buy it, we can pretty much write that strip off as gone.

    Ha. I landed there with my Sportcopter and it was so muddy I slid all the way down to the bottom with breaks on. Guess I need bigger tires. Maybe time to sell my PA-11 and Sportcopter and upgrade to Cub with 31s.

    You can put 31s on your 11, if you practice and get better in your 11 it will takeoff and landing as short as that whirligig

    It was the Joseph Siegel Instructional (JSI) slide-away clinic.
    Based on the documented footage, Joe failed to slide due to Bob-Hoover-like aileron inputs and therefore did not pass the sideslide currency test and will have to retake training at a later date.

    That was only crosswind training JP. You have to come over to the Vermont border to get sidehill training on a greasy top surface.

    Yikes,
    I was thinking he had an ice crust on his snow and would be tricky on the skis. Glad I did not go.

    SKI PLANE FLY IN

    Sponsored by EAA chapter 1576, Lyndonville VT:

    COME WATCH . EVERYONE IS INVITED

    The event will take place on Sat March 3rd 10AM to 2PM at Crystal Lake in Barton VT. In the case of bad weather, the event will be moved to Sunday March 4th. If the ice or snow is bad on the lake, the event will still be carried out at Island Pond (5B1) as it is not plowed. Last minute information on the event can be obtained by calling Bruce at 802-274-6121

    Directions to ski plane fly in.

    From Lyndonville, take Rte #5 north to West Burke and then on toward Barton. Before reaching Barton, Rte #5 runs along the west side of Crystal Lake. From the south end of the lake watch for the boat landing. Our tiny cottage is 1/4 mile past the boat landing, painted light yellow and my plane will be parked out front by 9 AM. Refreshments

    Forgot to mention this earlier Dave, but that wasn't mud. Mud in VT/NH is what others call Spring. We just call it mud season.
    That's when you need barn boots to leave the house.

    What we landed on was an inch or so of thawed grass on top of frozen ground.

    So I was putting the Cub away today when a couple of friends drove up to have a look. They then proceeded to tell me that they were driving by this sugar house out on Route 12 a weekend or two ago and there was a whole gaggle of cubs parked next to the restaurant. I acted surprised, told them I knew nothing of it! They left wondering if they could get their 180 and 185 in that field...

    I know a couple owners that could. Probably. Lol.
    The common response I get from pilots after landing is simply that the sidehill looks pretty flat until they land.

    But if it was flat we couldn’t hold the slip and slide events there....

    How long is that strip? I won't go in anything less than 1000' with my 185 and have worked on 700' in my old two window 180. Side note I wouldn't do either unless I was getting paid well.

    Not sure how long it is, but these two guys are real sharp. By that I mean they were just talking and not planning on going in there.... Not saying it couldn’t be done, cause back in the day I used to work a 180 out of Kenai and Dillingham pretty hard. But that was a long time ago, in a land far, far away.....

    I would think a well rounded wagon driver could easily handle the field. Don't know if the friendly neighbors or the cows could handle the noise.

    Our leader here landed at my strip ( 800ft ) and used half of it with his big powered 180, and flew over the first 50ft

    Well, the “hayfield” is of undisclosed length, and somewhat depends on which part you want to consider landing on.
    You could try next to the road, up the hill, next to the house, or sashay your way around all three.
    But, that’s not highly recommended.

    Nice hour flight up around warrensburg, lake George and Whitehall today. Good breeze blowing. A bit of ground icing.

    Pffft! My wife goes into shorter than that with her RV-4. (...level and good approaches, not comparable to this slip-n-slide contest)

    Turns out Dave Brewer and his wife... oh darn Joe, I've forgotten already... Tracy? Lisa? ... are great people, happy to have us land and enjoy their strip.
    On the way home from the WAD last fall, the weather kept getting lower and lower and lower. We were trying to at least get to Keene for some lunch and to wait out the weather. We got squeezed down into the CT river valley by clouds sitting on the hills. I was eye balling Santa's as an "alternate" and wondering how we would be greeted if we dropped in. ...managed to find a route through the hills into Keene.
