    I don't have any cool photos to post of my adventures, but this past sunday was the first day that I actually ever flew anywhere. I flew around the pattern 3 times at KRXE in Rexburg, Idaho. This was my first solo as a student pilot.

    Nerve wracking, but exilarating. This has been a long time coming and I'm pumped to finally be making progress!!

    Thank you!

    You guys and gals on this site are a wealth of information that I am fortunate to have access to. I read every post of every thread that comes up. My instructor is often caught off guard at the details and terminology I am familiar with thanks to you guys. From gear legs to tires to prop pitches to fabric covering options and on and on. This site is great. Even If I'm not posting I'm still reading, so be careful what you post!

    I have been flying a '67 172 G model.

    I actually own a 1941 J5A that I was hoping to receive instruction and learn to fly in, but after a year long saga that I won't bore you with, I have been unable to find a tail wheel endorsed instructor(or any instructor with a plane for that matter), within a reasonable distance from me. I finally said heck with it and am driving 2 hours one way every chance I get to receive instruction in a 172. Once I get my license I will find somebody somewhere that will instruct me to get my tailwheel endorsement.

    My interest is in off airport super cub type stuff. A J5 is the closest I could afford to a supercub at this point.

    I've got a long way to go but I'm just excited to be making some progress finally.

    Good for you...keep at it. It's a shame you are having difficulty finding an instructor who is tailwheel qualified. A lightweight J-5 is a good performer.

    Excited to hear about your progress. More than 40 years later I remember my first solo in almost every detail.

    Iím also sorry you canít find a tailwheel instructor where you are. I ran into that for an upcoming flight review in W Idaho too. Nobody local wants to get in my antique. I probably will have to rent a Cessna to remain legal.

    RV, look up Spence Air Service in Enterprise OR. Joe might be willing to fit you in. He trained me in my supercub.

    I knew from past flights and photo work,, I was on final to land on the sand bar just beyond the slough end, so I was about 100 feet or less.

    Went to get the airplane after it's annual. Colors are just peaking around here (a couple weeks late I think).

    To see the annular eclipse. It was pretty cool. It was almost entertaining watching a Lake amphibian come screaming in, standing on the brakes to get stopped just one minute from annularity. Talk about efficient, those guys didn't waste any time at all sitting around waiting, like the rest of us did.

    The ship has a load of tower sections. They appear to be assembling the towers in this side of the area. Notice the large pile of blades in the background. This is in New Bedford Mass.

    We missed seeing you yesterday.
    What an awesome fall day to fly.
    Guillaume and I met at Watchaug Pond then flew down the coast to The Connecticut River. North to Goodspeed for lunch. The river was not landable due to logs an stuff floating down from Vermont.

    Lituya Bay, Outer Coast, West Glacier Bay, pristine fall weather and not a hint of wind. In the evening after the flight yesterday, very near the landslide photos, two 5.0+ earthquakes occur. Felt em here in Juneau. Guess Iíll have to head back out and see if anything else shook loose!

    Flew down to Gallup, NM for the 39th annual Navajo Christmas Airlift. Took a small load of leftover jackets and other warm clothing we gathered from friends (took all we had last year).

    They are expecting a total of 80 aircraft full of clothing etc. this year. There are some desperately poor Navajo in northern N.M. and Arizona that really need these items. A 185 and a Sportsman made the trip with us this year from Pagosa Springs.

    With no wind finally for the first time in several days, I got the RANS S-7S fueled, pushed out of the hangar, got inside, and just as I was reaching for the start key, the windsock made a weird flutter, 3 minutes later, it was honking again at 20+ MPH, windsock straight out, direct cross to my mountain strip. I put it away, too turbulent this near the 9K ridge behind my place, no fun anyway, found that out decades ago the hard way. With 40+ years of operating on this 14 to 16% grade on two different 400' long strips, I need a reminder now and then to not get complacent and just go do something else some days. The wind never quit, it's still blowing, so I'm feeling pretty smug. Just about anywhere else I fly, it's easier to predict what the wind will be doing, than at my home strip, that's good I guess, and only one time did I make an approach when the wind was coming down the mountain, it was so turbulent the only thing that got me down with no damage was dumb luck. When it's coming sideways to the ridge it's just no fun but not terrifying.

    Vineyard Wind project 20 miles south of Marthas Vineyard. There are now three wind mills up and standing at attention. One in the process of assembly and the power station.

    Thankfully there is not a prohibited airspace around his cottage. The house is about a mile from the airfield. So far the Secret Service is very cooperative.

    Aubrey told her Mom she wanted to go to the river to collect some more rocks for her rock box but didn't want to go in the river.
    Didn't want to sit in the back seat, in PaPaw's lap.

    Getting her in my lap without any help was gonna be a challenge since she is scared to stand on the tire so she agreed to be a big girl and sit in the back seat but had to have her pacie.

    Guess who's spending 6 days over Thanksgiving at a nearby island. It will effect your airport.

    I am late to the game, so will just toss out the one person I think is important enough to summer here:

    Laura Johnson?

    Other than that, I will say it is nice to live and fly around unimportant folks that really don't like lots of fanfare.
    I don't know where you've been me lad, but I see you won first Prize!

    On final to Red Owl Airfield

    Sorry for the terrible picture, but I've wanted to post something here for a while and this is what I've got.

    Flew from Red Owl to Elko (Nv) - thence to Winnemucca (Nv) - and back to Red Owl. Pretty hazy but other than that it was a good day.
