    of what can be done even on 25/11/4's way back in the 1960's. Again not the sorta place the avg fella is going to venture into today. But great example of what a professional bush pilot can do with a cub. Thats Bill Sims as a young fella hitting a sheep strip when he and Denny Thompson operated out of Susitna Lodge.

    Perhaps that is why that N number is not assigned to any airplane now?

    So as I stated pictures of cubs in places can be real deceiving, an overhead photo could show an easy line through a wash etc. Anyone can taxi off the intending LZ to make it look more impressive. Yes there are big rocks there but I guarantee he did not roll over the big ones with that set up. We use are airplanes today for fun and more like dirt bikes, I would venture to say someone like Loni Habersetzer who is a modern day bush pilot lands places that only a 1960 era bush pilot would dream of. Loni built his experience playing like I do for fun, I would venture to say that there are modern day off airport pilots that would make the 1960 pilot cringe at what we do because we have a lot of experience do 30-50 landing in an afternoon. A lot of skill can be gained with repetition. Look at what the guys do at the X games and put that up against Bob Hurricane Hannah. Bob was the best in his day but the sport and equipment they used back then has far surpassed his abilities. I am not really sure what your point is, maybe men were better back then, maybe we should all just stick with the old 125 hp cubs and take our chances doing what we do. That does not make any sense to me....

    Yeah 1960 era had the real bush pilots no doubt. I would hate to be aviating on a Polar bear hunt without a GPS up north in flat light and low visibility. That time is gone, never going back to that era so I do what I do now and love it. It is my escape!

    Rocks are not common around here but I found some last Wednesday.
    First landing was rougher than expected...

    Tires were at 4 psi, which is too inflated for rocks I think.

    The added safety factor for when you misjudge the size of rocks or roughness of the tundra is one of the best arguments for getting 35's.

    Where's 16Bravo? He has a fishing video from last summer where the LZ is water-filled deep ruts in high grass. Best demo of the 35" advantage I've ever seen.
