That looks like Johnson Creek - we were there a couple of weeks ago, but not with the RV?s - playing with some back country airplanes!

Yep. It's Johnson Creek. Met a couple friends who flew in for a Supercub fly in.

Default 0NY0 North Creek

After visiting with Bob and Terry at Lake Placid I went to North Creek, NY. An idyllic place in the Adirondacks very interesting upslope curvy runway. There are sandy spots and some roughness. Watch where you glue your training wheel in.











It was nice talking to you in the air Phil. I'll be baaack

Vlad,
Just missed you at The Crick! Had the RV out last night and the Cub out today! When I got back this afternoon I heard stories of an RV with Russian star stopping by. Every Sunday morning during warmer months, Marcy Field Farmers Market right next to the runway. Highly recommended and very scenic flight from The Crick.

That's cool Jake! Those wingtips look nice. Marcy... haven't been there for years thanks for farmers market tip. Would be a perfect grocery stop in warmer months.

I was zeroed in on the CTQ2 breakfast run today but my CANPASS just expired and Canadiens said niet to expedited entry. So I just buzzed them and went on a free hunt. Have you checked out that elevated tillings pile by Tahawus quarry? Just between LKP and Bennetts. Looks like a runway.

Default Trade Wind MA44

Trade Wind airport MA44 is located on the island of Martha's Vineyard. It belongs to the Land Bank Commission and pilots are encouraged to visit it. A simple questionnaire should be answered via email to receive the landing permit.

The airstrip is within KMVY Class D and runways are similarly aligned. A very nice 15 min hike through Oak Bluffs brings you to a marina. It's a tourist trap on the weekends. The town has a sidewalk all the way from the airport to downtown. Cool place.

Looks like a cool spot Vlad. It?s a 4 hour flight for me, which is doable. Hopefully, I can talk my wife into a trip there this summer/early fall. I like the pub/bar, ?Nancy?s?. Especially the name, it?s so ?east coast?.

Default Rugmuff?

Nobody knows what it is but some know the location. Thanks to Alex Skrabut and T.Sayer Fahy of Carabasset Valley airport I was sent in right direction.











A beautiful place. There was no phone signal for hundred miles. How can I report?





All amenities.





Organic food.




If you drive a bit there is a camping spot.







If anybody knows what kind of airfield is that please do tell.
