    Tom, I saw you approaching your strip around 2:45 maybe?? Did you see a helicopter pass by you? Need to throw my skis on the Cub this weekend. Where have you found to go with good snow??

    Might have been. Heard one on concord going to the helipad but it wasn’t a JB n number. 6 something. Was up in Maine swapping out planes. Don’t think there will be much snow after today

    I drove past your house about 10 days ago and was surprised how dry it was there. We gave thoughts to stopping in but really wanted to get up to MOK for a late lunch since we had been on the road going on 7 Hrs.

    Finally got my Datums rigged and wired up. Flew up to Jeff's and landed in about 16" of fresh powder. Datums worked great in the deep fluf.







    A Clipper and another supercub joined in and we headed for Raquette Lk





    Then over to Indian lk and Speculator









    Pretty Clipper





    Awesome day to be alive

    Tom we would have stopped if we had more time. We had just left having pizza up at Lk Desolation and were heading to Ray Gould's. Didn't want to leave Poor Joe without enough daylight to get back to Seamans in Pa

    Glenn didn’t want to come visit us and see the trains.
    Hopefully the walk won’t be as bad as when they were on floats.

    No, 1/2 of ice under snow and 5" of water under that. Skis and walking stay on top but you can kick a hole thru with your heel. Just heard another story today of a Stinson going on its back landing 29s on snow.
