    Which prop did you test and are you going to try something else?

    This was the stock prop and it ran pretty close to expected numbers. They were testing a 2 bladed M/T on an O-360 powered 172 and wanted to get a feel for what the Husky was pulling first. I'd like to upgrade to the M/T 2 blade for "safety" reasons but when the idea was presented to my wife she said it was just an excuse to get fat...

    Dave and I met over 30 years ago, he was introduced to me as my CFI. He and I had many great adventures flying around the Hawaiian Islands, including my first solo at Ford Island. Dave is a Captain for an airline now, but took some time to come hang out. Sandbars, bush strips and some Lodge time made for a great weekend.

    Got to fly a J4 home for a friend's today. Small world, it was bought from Robbie Bach. I first met Robbie at Broadhead Grass Roots flyin back in 99. This rattly Travel Air 4000 landed and was covered with oil from stem to stern. I walked over to the pilot and offered to help mop up. 2 hrs later he says let's go make it dirty again. learned who it was over campfire beers

    this is Livingston, Montana. Met a guy here named Gabriel that has a PA-12 I think. I told him about N999MP, and we went round on mods. We cub chat for awhile. Very nice guy. He said he knew a bunch of cub guys, like Steve pierce, Steve Johnson, Doug, etc. He then asked if I knew any of y’all. For the life of me, I don’t know why, but I said “nope.”

    Last weekend my Buddy and I met a young fellow at Wood River Lodge that was interested in becoming a commercial pilot. He helped my friend and I load up and get ready to leave, while doing so I realized that this young man was very knowledgeable and had already completed ground school at 17. The skeeters were driving my California based buddy mad, so I promised that fellow I would come back and take him flying. Yesterday the weather was perfect for mountain flying, so I jumped in TopCub and flew some fish out to the lodge, the owner has 10 kids including the young fellow I met. With dads blessing Joe and I hopped in TopCub and did some Cub stuff in the beautiful Wood River Valley. We even found a huge grey wolf on a bull caribou kill.

    That family lives in Haines when not at the lodge! I have taught most of the kids in Hunter Education classes, including Joe. They moved up here not long after I moved back.

    Thank you for taking him flying. The entire family are great people, and willing to help with anything. We need more like them.
    I don't know where you've been me lad, but I see you won first Prize!

    Well, the bloom is off the fireweed, as the summer wraps up a few friends and our EAA chapter had a overnight camp trip to Lake Minchumina. Great trip with amazing people.

    Was up at dawn this morning chasing the Golden Hour,, nothing I had in mind was working out for lighting and timing. I had given up and decided to practice at a local gravel strip. After landing I was taxing back and saw this patch of berries........

    Flew the Rebel down to the Gary Beck Memorial Fly-in at Battle Lake MN. Several warbirds showed up to include T-6, Stearman, P-51, Corsair, Dauntlas, and even a Spartan Executive! Huge turn out and when I arrived I was marshalled down to the show entrance. I was the only plane there on Bushwheels. Several amphibs though. So many people there it was difficult getting pictures.

    On Thursday I flew the Super Cub to Blakesburg for the annual AAA/APM fly-in, returning to Oshkosh yesterday. As is my usual luck, I had headwinds in both directions. Put nearly 8 hours on the tach. (No-wind time is usually 3 hours each way.) But at least it was bumpy!!

    Super Cub landing & takeoff from remote area in Alaska

    A couple of weeks ago...

    These short videos are at a remote location at the head of Sheep Creek, which starts from the Sheep Glacier off of the Northern side of Mt Sanford, Alaska.

    Definitely one of the coolest places I’ve ever landed. Why? Due to very remote location and the unique challenges presented by this location. Relatively short, usually a one-way strip, views of Mt Sanford and it’s many glaciers. No other person (other than the other Super Cub with me that day) within probably 50+ miles.

    Due to typical down-glacier winds, 99% of the time have to land uphill and takeoff with a slight tailwind. This day was a rare up-valley breeze. The approach over the glacier, then a side slip over the terminal moraine, was a hoot!

    Landing:

    Takeoff:

    Thank you for watching!

    Ran into some friends from Nebraska while at Trigger Gap (17A) and dragged them out to Richland with us.

    I don’t run into many other planes on floats in South Eastern Massachusetts.

    That's a 1974 7GCBC N86969. I put that on floats for it's original owner. Along the way the floats were changed, those don't have the fairings like the original set. It belongs to a long time local sail loft owner.

    I think 95% of the floatplane flying in South Eastern Massachusetts is done by you and Steve. That leaves 5% for me.

    I'm still trying to figure out who stops in here to play with a Caravan periodically.

    I forgot about Sara.
    She flies more than the three of us combined.
    The Caravan is based at Plymouth and does the Boston Harbor to the Hudson River run a few times a day. She rinses NYC off the big Cessna in the freshwater ponds.
