    John,

    Heater :
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01KL...f=yo_pop_mb_pd

    6”reducers, 2, Lowe’s :
    https://m.lowes.com/pd/IMPERIAL-6-in...cer/1000230231

    4”x 96” duct, Lowe’s :
    https://m.lowes.com/pd/Lambro-4-in-x...e-Duct/3266293

    I cut 3 small rectangle connector tabs from aluminum mount the reducers on the heater. Rivet to the reducer and use existing screws in the heater to fasten on.

    Heater has thermostat and hi/low heat settings. Thermostat not labeled but tests show to have a 10 degree on/off range. Dial set about 10 o’clock on mine provides a 40-50 degree oil temp reading on the panel gauge.

    Thought this was fun so I’d share with you.

    I was flipping through some logs and saw the one from yesterday, where 40M and I were playing in the snow before meeting the guys for lunch at Lake Desolation.

    It strikes me that Skis in a northeast winter must be like bushwheels in Utah. Landing areas are everywhere and smiles per mile skyrocket.

    My phone frozen in the cold, so no pix. Andy and I had a good time catching up. 5.3 flight hours for a sandwich with great friends. Seems like a good deal to me.

    No wingman today when the arctic wind blasts subsided, so headed north to find a spot to do some sort of skiplane overnight deal. North end Pemadumcook lake found a lakefront camp with a cook. Looks like a nice spot for a get together
    minus 16 on front porch at 2 pm

    On the way back, the greatest sport of all time pops up. Catching a coyote out in the middle of a frozen lake. They make a living getting deer out on the glare ice, where they can get them splayed out and then it's all over.
    we havegood snow and slush so the deer can fight back pretty good for now This chap was half a mile from the woods. They are pretty smart when a plane is strafing them they usually ball up when you get close
    he made it to the woods, but needs to change his soiled coyote pants no coyotes were harmed I need Steve E in back seat gunner

    keep you posted on the SkiplanePalooza

    I’m down for that. Having a lot of fun with them so far, it sure is a pain in the butt pushing into the hanger. Made some dollies but trying to fine tune the alignment. Another thing, are you guys unhooking your bungees after each flight? Mine stretched out and had to heat them up to get them to retract, ended up adding a second to get by for the day.

    1/2" aircraft bungee? Might need to shorten them up. I only unhook when I put it away

    I’m using 1/2 bungee from aircraft spruce. I’ll see how much more stretch is in them and make a adjustment. Seems like they don’t like the cold anymore than I do.

    Junk the bungee cord and put a spring on there. Tension is always consistent and unaffected by the cold

    My springs have worked very, very well. I hear that some people actually buy them at Home Depot in the garage door accessories department. But I wouldn't know anything about that.

    Gosh, they have quite a selection there. I think my door liked a 90 to 100 lb. The boys up at KMLT also have a lot of garage doors in town and might chime.

    http://www.centuryspring.com/extension-spring-635.html. According to Summit this spring was used on a Sport Cub I saw. No where near a 90 ib door spring. The #632 spring is a little stronger and 2" longer which would be better, IMO.

    North East winter Fun 17/18

    I am not sure what springs are used on my 2300 Summits for my EX with 3inch gear. They do look like standard hardware store springs.

    Good thing I didnt have it with me I might have used it on myself. Do you remember our ride last weekend in the Pemi? Same thing yesterday around Debsconeag mts. Got my tailend handed to me again. Someday the wind might stop blowing around here.
    The worse part was my friend who runs the Whitehouse Landing gave me a righteous double chocolate brownie, corner piece even. I just got the mighty Carbon Cub trimmed up and headed for home when all hell broke loose and slammed my head off the skylight again. Brownie goes flying into the baggage somewhere in pieces. Pity. I put it back together and ate it later

    Ha! I'm still at work and having one hell of a chuckle at that image. We gotta tighten that seat belt up a bit more. That 100 Miles Wilderness is a terror this time of year for sure. And the wind up there never stops in the winter.

    True story--back in the late 70s and early 80s a fairly decent number of Milltown citizens decided the taxes were too high (oddly enough it was one of the highest per capita income towns in Maine) and stuck their proverbial middle fingers out and moved to the Lakes. They all poured a gob of money in converting their camps, paying for plowing and shuttling back and forth to town for school, work and groceries.

    Oddly enough, the gorgeous days of summer with perfect weather and 73 degree water have their limits. Very few people had ever lived at the Lake year round. Turns out there's a reason for that.

    When the NW winds of winter start moaning off Katahdin and the Hundred Mile Wilderness, they head straight down the lakes, blowing snow at 40-50 mph on a good winter day. Heck, even in town the winds of January could shake our solid old 1934 house on Maine Ave on those dark nights.

    Needless to say, the "screw you we're moving year round to the lake" movement died a cold and rapid death. They were pretty much all moved back in within 3-5 years.

    The newer insulations and heating systems make modern day venturers able to fair a bit better.

    But, if you happen to be out there on the ice on a nicer afternoon you still may witness a small silver and yellow airplane going topsy turvy as it approaches the edges of the 100 Mile Wilderness. Listen close and you may hear him yelling.

    Yep, willyb still has my skis, so I’ll have to run down there and pick them up. Need to do a little more rigging first. Flying around today it sure looks like good ski conditions..

    I landed at Crow Island today. No willyb.
    Landing at Crow was like pounding into 3’ seas in a 15’ boat without the spray.
    Drifts cross the runway every 50’ feet or so
