Great crew over there in Nestor Falls! I rolled in with a C180 to pick up some pax. It was 4 degree in MB when I departed with my sweater on and ended up being 26C by the time I was leaving Nestor. The guys felt pretty bad for me sweating my ass off in a hoodie, so they kindly gave me a company t-shirt. :oops: That'll teach me....either a) to bring a t-shirt, or b) how to get free gear :wink:

Needless to say, I've been in and out of there quite a few times now and they are always a pleasant crew! Hopefully see yea next season!

There are really only three aircraft that I want to fly, have in my logbook, experience etc. The beech 18 on floats is one. The other is the ol' Nordyne. The third will remain secret.

I don't know Rowdy. Since they cut that hole in the side for viewing plexi. The H-4 Hurcules might not be structurally sound for flight anymore.

I see your skyrocket, and add a Bellanca Pacemaker.
Gosh Blakey, we were both obviously born in the wrong era...

When are you going to swing by for a visit?

How about an N3N on floats? This one was, and may still be, up in Pender Harbour.

Playing with my new GoPro camera. Landing and taking off this small lake near Chapleau, ON is challenging because you have to thread the needle through the narrows in the middle of the lake. Glassy water and a hot day just make it more interesting.
