    Stuart & John's Restaurant and Sidehill Haystrip

    Thought with the growing popularity and summer coming on that I'd start an "official" thread for Stuart & John's, and in particular for updates regarding use.

    I got word from Roger (Well actually from Alisha, who referred to him as grampy) that the grass is now too tall to land this weekend.
    He is hoping to get it cut before next weekend, but wanted to keep folks off until he does.

    So 5/25-28 weekend is a no-fly zone.

    I'll post up any info that comes my way, but pilots planning ahead can always call and check with them.

    Well SJ, Both have a fragrance, and are the natural discharge from part of nature.

    Luckily we have evolved enough to cook and consume the sap from a Maple tree, and work hard to limit the consumption of manure, although we've all had our days in the barrel...

    Moral of the story... If you need help deciphering Sap from Sh*t, you need to spend more time in New England. lol!

    Rogers not using his head, he should get us to unload and stack the hay as a landing fee

    Stuart & John's Restaurant and Sidehill Haystrip

    Hey all,

    I know a number of you are in Lockhaven this week, but when you get back keep in mind that Roger Adams is lonely. I got a call from him today reminding me that tonight was Cruise Night (Every Thursday), and they haven't seen a plane in a month! I feel bad since Roger loves us plane visitors so much, and he got the power line taken down and bought his own windsock for us to use.

    So if anyone has a moment to drop in and say hi to Roger, it would really lift his spirits.

    Thanks so much.
    pb.

    As Tom mentioned in the other thread, Thursday is cruise night and Roger just called around again letting everybody know that it’s supposed to be a pretty big turn out this week. ( tomorrow)
    So if you can try to get up and say hi and check out the cars. They get a pretty good thrill out of just seeing us fly in and fly out

    What are your opinions for a C-172 on this field? Looks to have enough room but I guess the height of the grass matters.

    Charlie,

    It's not conducive for a 172. The length shown on a map is not usable length as the field is much more of a side-hill than you realize, until you actually land on it.
    I'll see if I can add another map to this thread, although there are some in other threads when we first started going in.

    On summer days I probably would not use a 65 hp Cub or any trike. 850's would be a minimum tire size on an light airplane, and 26" would be recommended.

    I will probably drive down and take a look. Sounds like it must be softer or rougher than a simple mowed field as well.
    I just need to wash all the VT dirt off my wife's car so we do not get laughed out of there.

    Google doesn't do a good job of showing it for a pilots perspective, and the imagery is a bit old and low res.

    If you can understand grade percentages you probably have a leg up on the rest of us.

    If winds favor it, Landing to the south is the better approach, allowing for an angled approach towards the road, touchdown and then rollout / taxi down the field up to the barn. The only clearance issue is over the trees before the field.

    Landing to the north is a little more tricky, for any "north" wind is typically more of a northwest wind, and the approach path is a northeast heading. The path is over the manure silo and staying closer to the barn roof side, while descending and staying slow as the field is sloped away as well. With big tires not really an issue but the common touchdown point is right about at the swale, so you can place wheels on before or bump the power and set down after. Then a healthy finesse of right rudder is used to keep from sliding northwest down the slope to the left.

    Departure is good in either direction, starting right at the barn north, or at the trees south, and climbing out as required.

    On another plus tonight the local cop showed up looking very official as he walked over to us standing by the planes, said he had a complaint about low flying aircraft. Said it sounded like a good excuse to meet up with some pilots. He volunteers at Rhinebeck once in awhile and is rebuilding a Champ. We invited him to ask any rebuilding questions on here.

    Roger just called me and said last Thursdays flyin to the cruise in was fantastic. He said the hay is still not too high and it would be great if some could fly in for this Thursdays cruise in. He really gets a kick out of the airplanes showing up.

    It was great talking with you guys and thanks for the invite to the forum. I’m looking forward to starting on the Champ when it arrives at the end of the month and I’m sure I’ll have many questions. It’s nice to see planes flying into Stuart and John’s and hopefully someday I’ll be joining you. I’ll try to swing up tonight and see if anyone dropped in.

    I didn't make it, I tied up with things at work. Jim took a ride up in the Model T and said he would call if someone was there. He didn't call so I suspect not.

    The field is mowed, and ready for use if anybody wants to go to cruise night Thursday. Roger is in the hospital with pneumonia which apparently is a yearly thing but he wanted to make sure we got the word.

    Met a guy today up near the wad, he said you’re welcome to come back anytime and camp out. He used to fly helicopters. It’s kind of short and pretty. Ok really rough.
