We can still have nice things.....
 
Corona curve smashing is not much fun for anyone, but I can socially isolate and still find some beauty out there.

Sunsets over the Mississippi still get me every time. Tonight was a keeper.

Just upriver of Hastings things looked pretty sweet.......




Lock and Dam just off the wingtip......



Whole lotta fun at less than 5 GPH. They practically pay you to haul away mogas these days....ok not quite, but still....



Speaking of beautiful, Moxie is lonely, locked-in Boxer practically advertising for date with that day-glo collar!




Spring is happening in the northern tundra - get out to enjoy it, alone, or with a furry best friend!!

photos
 
The only photo that I could see was the "lock and dam" photo. The others showed up as a gray circle with a white minus sign.

The photo issues continue to baffle me!

Nice Pete. That's my early evening flying "fix" as well out of Fleming to Red Wing and back.

I flew this morning near the Atlantic coast and over the St. Johns River. May be the last time for a while as we're going on shutdown in Florida. It was a wonderful respite from the real world below.

Always great to see the old stomping grounds Pete - when I was learning to fly in the J-3 back when the runway was down by the University flight facilities, just going to the St. Croix was a cross-country!

Our Freedom to Fly
 
Pete, I'm back on the forum my 9A is running beautiful at 205 hrs I finally have the speeds down for landing. Last year the Mrs's and I made a trip to VNE Venice FL 5 stops going and 5 stops coming back, absolutely amazing. So far so good for our freedom to fly, but Im very concerned in that continuing
