    Winter time....

    Just a few photos of my day, I helped my brother-in-law and his resident CFI pull his Super Cub out of the lake, off of floats, onto tundra tires (31"), and finally onto wheel skis. Here are some photos of just after firing it off, the photos did not turn out as well as I'd hoped, as the aircraft is vibrant Piper yellow and it does not even show in the photos.

    Nice. No matter what the pictures look like, you will always have that memory.

    Hmmm!!!! You see beauty, I see absolute misery...snow, slush, ice, blizzards, road salt, traffic chaos, heating bills, snow shovelling, 6 layers of clothing, boots etc ....
    Remind me again about where is the beauty of all this. Sure, it might look nice for an hour or so when fresh snow has fallen and before the salt trucks get through, but after that, who needs this 'beauty'?

    And don't tell me to move up farther North where the snow stays 'nice' longer. Hard to appreciate that after your face freezes up and falls off. Now, show me the same pictures in Spring or Summer and I'll show you beauty then (Green is beautiful)

    LOL, you always seem to take the wind out of my sails. Your 100% right, but way up here where I am, they can't use road salt... It's too cold for it to work, sand only, but if I think about it, your 100% right.

    Please allow me to rephrase..


    AK, Those Pictures are beautiful, However.... Better you then me... LOL

    It's about getting out....

    Maurice winter time allows you to get out and be one with nature....every once in awhile I get so inspired I have to go out and hug a tree, albeit a very lonely tree....you can use one of these when not simming, to Fly... and get Airborne.....

    I came about this ' ' close to working for Boeing at Ft. Greely Alaska for two years back in '03. I was really looking forward to going, but the Patriot missile system guys beat me out of a job. Damn gürly-man missileers.

    I would have enjoyed the two years, maybe longer but I would have had to experience it to know for sure.

    I do know that I like Winter better than I do Summer.

    Nice pictures!

    Is that a chainsaw you are holding and isn't it a bit early to chop a Xmas tree? But I do understand if you need wood for your stove however...at that latitude, polar bears are the only ones with any common sense since they don't even venture out in Winter.
