Building things, fixing stuff, wrenching on cars . . . . . and some other stuff too.
Congrats! One of the best ways to start the year. Beautiful landscapes, despite the snow -or may be due to...
Winter flying is always nice, cold dense air makes for excellent performance. If the plane is kept in the hangar like this one, it eliminates 90 percent of the work in making it ready to fly.
Love those aerial photos. It looks REALLY cold. I'd love to get an airplane. I'm betting we could make the trip from here to the land in a half hour or less!
Hey mark, this plane with the 180 hp engine is doing about 120 mph through the air. Your results may vary over the ground depending on headwinds. You do have some decent open space with great open approaches on your property to land on. It would be a matter of scouting it first, picking a good spot and making sure it is smooth and clear of boulders and obstacles.
Hi Mike, great photos, I miss all the trips I took during my lodge caretaking days. Seeing Alaska by air is the bomb. You can still see mountains, rivers and land that has no human footprints. Thanks for sharing.
Hi John, seeing the world from above like that as well as the travel and time elements are some of the neatest things in the world. Even a one hour ride can just change your perspective on things.
Outstanding photos. I used to love flying over the mesa and over Albuquerque in the early 1970's. Everything looked so clean, and the snow made it look like a painting.
Glad you enjoyed them Harry. As a pilot you know how good it feels when you can get away from the world below and view it from above.
