Default 1NY3 Richland Airpark

My good buddy Wade was vacationing on Lake Ontario shoreline and I came to visit him. The closest airstrip to his retreat was Richland Airpark 1NY3. Decent runway but trees on approach to the north were overgrown. I landed 18 and took off 36 worked good with winds 320/6kts. We went for a ride over the shoreline

Default Richland.

Approximately 7:30 am while on Vacation, I get a text that asks simply, "do you have your headset with you?" I roll over and show it to my little lady who just woke up. She asks, "do you?" I respond, "yes".

"Well go have fun!" She says.

I'm a lucky man for having an understanding little lady, and a friend whose always up for an adventure!

Thanks Vlad! High point of the week!

Default Geneseo NY D52

Discovered this gem yesterday. 4,500' of manicured to Triple Tree standards grass. Geneseo NY D52.




National Warplane Museum on field. Good reason to come back.

I'm shocked that's the first time you've landed at Geneseo.

I collected my first grass strip this weekend, Cedar Mills in north Texas.

3T0 looks like a picture perfect location. Any tricks, images?

What else is at Geneseo? Food? Might be a nice place to visit on another cross-border raid! :-)

Nothing within walking distance Mark. Except the Museum. If you decide on over the border raid keep me informed.

Default Food

N56, 50 to the SW, claims to have a diner across the street. DSV has food across the street but no grass runway.
