    Took my son flying out into the Monument Valley area last week. He had the good camera and got quite a few pictures.

    Great trip to Eastern Oregon today with a buddy to look at a Stinson to buy. No pics, but experienced ground speeds from 29 to 120. The wind was, shall I say, influential.

    Hey Eddy Lewis, those are very interesting photos. Much different perspective of Monument Valley than usually seen.

    Yes lots of really neat rock formations on the way down to monument valley. Some of those pictures are close to Bluff and Mexican Hat just northeast of Monument Valley.

    The storms of last week are now passed and we are in the idyllic days of Summer. So went and got the Cub back in the water.

    Cubus: clear, cool, low humidity days are the absolute best for float flight-seeing!!!

    I would like to see a full description, tips, and some pix of your airplane lift. It looks well designed to hold a beautiful airplane.

    Paul, I'll see if I can dig up some closer specific shots of the lift. It's a Sunstream hydraulic scissor lift. Needs to be in at least 5 feet of water in order to compress enough to let the airplane on and off. This one has a turntable, but I never use it. Just come into the dock, unload, position the airplane on the lift (easy) and hit the remote key fob for up. When leaving I load up on the lift, do engine check and then key fob for down. It's really easy to use.

    I agree res this last week for flying! This was last night, Debbie and I were out on another lakes patrol.

    Just a blessed days bouncing around on the sand.

    Made a new friend at the airport several months ago when I saw him pull his 182 out of a hangar that had recently sold. It was just after lunch on a Sunday and we had our usual Sunday morning river run with lunch at Clayton's BBQ with a gaggle of Super Cubs. Jason asked me if I was one of those guys in the big tired airplanes and that he wanted to do that. Fast forward and now he owns Ron Massey's L21 former Spirit of New Holstein and he made his first gravel bar landing yesterday. We had 5 Cubs on the bar for our Sunday morning meeting of the minds.

    I can just barely see the fresh needle tracks in his arms. Pretty soon a lighter and spoon will show up in his pics. He’s going to have so much fun he’ll forget about how much he has spent and is going to spend!

    Speaking of Ron Massey, how is he doing? Is he still with us? I first met Ron in the mid 90’s when I lived in Texas and had my Super Cub. Super guy!

    I will be in the area around Sep 5th. If you allow spam cans, I would like to join your meeting of the minds. What time of the morning do you convene? I can take out the low hanging shrubs.

    On my way to Arkanstol.

    They were on there when I bought it, the flaps are also a deeper chord than stock. I have no idea if they're doing anything other than starting conversation

    Yes, on the Colorado. The water is pretty low this time of year. It is a dramatic area to fly around!

    They were a Cub Crafters experiment back when the Top Cub was starting as a project. I flew it a couple times several years ago (hydraulic flaps with dump button) but don't recall anything special other than it was well rigged and a delight to fly. Jim Richmond would know if there was any real benefit.

    Storms last night, this morning and then a three - four hour window before the next one hits. This last one is supposed to be nasty so I scooted at 11:30 this morning and zinged out for the airport. Beat the converted Caravan in that is based on Wilson Bay, but he was hot on my heals.


    A pretty turbulent ride, but hey, better than possible big holes in the wings.





    next one on the horizon:



    inbound the pond:

    The hydraulic flap system has been removed, and replaced with a standard handle now. I am curious what it would have been like with that system. I am flying into a lot of short stuff with it, and can see how the the dump button would have been nice.
