    Well it's January 3rd and the weather outlook over the next 10 days calls for temps favorable for making an inch of ice on average daily. With little to no snow forecast we could be on ice next week here in Vermont. How's it looking in the Dacks?

    I’m ready if there isn’t any snow, I plumbed heat into the cabin! But haven’t gotten to putting the skis on yet. The Champ is going to be big fun this winter.

    Thanks Glenn. I see Marty once in a while when he turns up at HWV.

    Pretty location. We sold our place in Worcester/Westville a few years ago. I miss it sometimes, but not the issues of maintaining two houses! For a while I kept an beater car at Oneonta and would commute with my Comanche. I would use that as a cross country for my instrument students and buy them lunch at Brooks Barbecue.

    Hey Glen, is there any snow or bare ice, thinking of coming in the Champ on wheels. Still haven’t been able to fly it since I hooked up the heat. So depending how that goes in flight.

    Update. Got a report from Twitchell Lake. 6 to 8" of solid ice with 5" of fluffy snow on top. Tires will be fine for those of you without skis. Looking to start at noon. Some are meeting up at Speculator around 9:30 for breakfast. 7" at Speculator.

    Dead calm balmy sunny day. Might be the best one we get all winter. Hard smooth ice with a little snow.

    I had "just one more thing" to tweak on my ski setup and it was nearly 2:00 before we were ready to fly. We ended up staying relatively local.

    Dave's cub was halfway down the lake. He had a smokey fire going and stood out on the ice and saw you land and takeoff. We got there around 12:15. Sorry we missed you

    Just be careful Jim, listening to Earle's experiences are so good that you won't want to leave and you'll end up landing in a narrow river in the dark
