It was a great run CJ! Mighty cold but great. Nearly froze my rear. Rangeley has it's own micro climate for sure.

Yes, hopefully this year we will have cooperative weather!

I plan on arriving sometime in the AM, perhaps around 9 or 10am and staying through lunch or later. I do have a hangar at 8B0, Bean Municipal for maintenance if needed complete with a Red Dragon preheater and ground transportation.

If my house isn't rented, we might have a place to stay also. Shoot me a PM or text if you are interested in spending the night either Friday or Saturday and I will coordinate.

I have room for a second RVin my hangar. That will be first come, first serve.

Sould be a fun time on the ice!

See you all there!

CJ

Thumbs up Bald Mountain Camp 2019 Fly In

They had THREE runways this year. Two plowed ice and one packed snow. There was a Burning Man like circle in the middle. Cool view from the above.



I took the longest runway. It was lined up with wind nicely. Traction was satisfactory. Back taxi took 10 minutes.






About a dozen planes showed up mostly local. All either on skis or bushwheels. I looked funny.







Our friendly host Steve.





The restaurant was packed.







I didn't stay long. Flash Mob Squadron couldn't make it.







See you all February 2020! Ottawa next!

I plan on heading up there tomorrow if anyone is going to be around. I should arrive sometime around noon time. Plan on having lunch and then heading back home. Show me a personal message or meet me on guns frequency in the morning.

Cool!

Mike, I might be able to leverage us a seaplane! I have a friend of mine who lost his medical and needs me to exercise it for him once in a while. If he still owns it, we could have some fun hopping around the lakes!

Hi Capt John,

That sounds interesting! All the floatplanes around me up here, never been in one.

Heading to work in a few, using the welding demonstration tools to spoolgun an aluminum passenger that will ride in the empty right seat. (20+ gallon size). Easiest answer to higher speed and still have nice range between fuel stops.

Notice you said seaplane, Goose, Duck, Seabee or?

Best regards,
Mike Bauer
