    Another soybean field being harvested in NW Iowa and you can see some disease(either anthracnose or Goss's wilt) areas in the corn field below me this morning.

    Rust was big around here this year. Good summer to be an aerial applicator. They were busy putting fungicide down a while back.

    Returning from an antelope hunt yesterday in the Cub I flew over Rogers Pass, where Highway 200 crosses the continental divide in Montana.

    I snapped the picture as I crawled over the divide. It had been rough up to about 5 miles from the divide but was very smooth those last few miles. But my ground speed dropped into the 30s! This is in a Cub with a normal no-wind cruise of about 94 mph. That means a wind speed of about 60.

    Today I looked at my InReach plots and the one closest to the pass showed a ground speed of 36 mph.

    Busy in NWA

    It's been pretty busy here in Northwest Arkansas since the AOPA article and video came out a few months ago, although a lot of the folks coming through had been here before. I've been spending most of my time in "other" airplanes but have had a few chances to fly myself around.

    I did get to ride in a helicopter for the first time in my life to go mark off a new strip we are working on with a private land owner. This will be another neat place to visit, although we have to deal with a LOT of armadillos first as you can see by one of the many holes pictured below

    There is always stuff to be done on one of the airfields down here. The solar/cellular weather station at Trigger Gap had gone off line and needed to be hard reset. It's a great "mission" for the Super Cub.

    Checked out a new airstrip being built at Banks Ranch - won't have grass on it until late spring but it will be a nice spot making a total of five airstrips on the property.

    If you see this guy in his Maule at one of the airstrips, he is probably either mowing or doing something else to make sure it is in good shape for visitors.

    Fall Flying at Banks Ranch

    Laura flew us out to Banks Ranch (62AR) yesterday and we finally got the ground tour of the nearly 2000 acres with five runways. It was a beautiful afternoon!

    The newest strip from the ground. I have landed it before, but it is not quite ready for prime time. Not named yet, but "Rocky" would be a good given all the rocks!

    Where did you fly today?

    Took a 97 year old WWII B17 Bomadier (flew 20 missions over Germany) on a helicopter tour today. He loved it.

    Went to hike on some lava beds, found some "sailing stones". Lower Cow Lake, Oregon.







    There are three simple rules for making consistently smooth landings. Unfortunately no one knows what they are.

    Those are some heavy stones. Does anyone have any idea as to how they move? Does the wind just blow them around during mud season?

    Forgive me if I'm just showing my ignorance but the photo makes your forward lift strut look significantly dented.

    I thought that as well after posting it. I think it’s just the way the light is hitting it. It is not dented.

    Took my Nephew flying. He was really scared to go in a small airplane. I talked him into just going down the runway then he was ready to go. After we took off he said he "wasn't ever scared", he was just "tricking me". He was actually terrified but after seeing it was no big deal he fell right into the groove and was ready to go again the next day.

    Looks to me like they're getting ready to set the tail hook.

    From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be
    found in all corners of the earth."

    Then he made the earth round... and He laughed and laughed and laughed!
