Once seeing your photos Vlad, I realized you were talking about the sand mines (US Silica)and I was talking about the Castle. So to put our confusion at ease, above is a link for the Castle.

Phew....I feel better now! Ha!

Thanks. I passed the site two times and it looked like kilns I thought I got lost. Good reason to come back to see the Castle, another pretty thing you mentioned and land on that strip nobody lands.

Default Moores 1E8 in Degrasse, NY

Deep in an Adirondack MOA lies a private field for public use. Moores airport, Degrasse, NY.





The runway is in decent shape, approaches are clear.








There is a dirt road dissecting the runway you have to watch where to drop your nose wheel if any.




Besides the runway there was only a little spot at the time I could park. The large mossy area is soft and fully panted RV will have difficulty to taxi.








I deplaned and walked around. Unattended field. There is an access to a creek. Several aircrafts are based there and almost everyone has it's own gas station.





WWII style snow remover and a roller.








I've heard that there is at least one flyin scheduled but I was unable to learn when.




A great stop overall.

Next stop should be 2E8. Also a grass strip. If you make it, let me know and I'll buy lunch.

Thanks Rich. I am actually planning Harsens Island Z92 on Saturday. Cackleberry looks like a nice spot to visit in the future.

Default Visit OK18

Hey Vlad,

Hope you can come visit the grass strip at OK18 someday. Memorial Day weekend we will be having friends over to do some camping, eating, and story telling. I know it's a long ways from your home base, but would love to have you join us if you can.

All the Best,

Clayton

Vlad,
If you decide to add another strip to your list, point that wayward 9A westward! After you visit Clayton, c'mon down to TX32!
A 9A fits in my driveway nicely...

TX32 "Fairway"

Default Smyrna DE 38N

TX32 it is. How last quarter of 2017 sounds for you Smokey? In the meantime I visited a little airport in the state of Delaware called Smyrna 38N. The runway is rather wide and you can cheat a lot of xwind there.





Not much activity was detected on a sunny Saturday morning. There are fuel pumps but there is no way to get gas without airport staff.





No food within walking distance either.




Up to other destination...
