Feb 8 - flew a leisurely 1/2 hr to CYHS (Hanover) from CNC3 (Brampton) with some of the guys for the $100+ lunch. Sunny, clear, smooth and -15C at 3000'. Cabin was very comfortable with the sun, seat heater and dual heat muffs all in action. Nice hour and change scenic route home. Great winter flying day here in the Great White North! Oil change after that while the oil is hot.

Default I've been to that lighthouse!

Great pics.

I think the Oregon coast, though well known, is still wildly underrated--to me it's hands-down in the conversation for the most beautiful place in the country.

King tides were in and the ocean did not disappoint.

Sierra visited us in Ajp for the first time. Friday, when asked if she would like to fly over the mine to see it she said SURE! First time Sandy or I can remember her going for a flight "for fun" rather than to get somewhere.

Saturday I flew to Copperstate and had a nice time. The dirt parking lot was dusty, not rough. It was nice to say HI to Shane from uAvionics and Kevin from Tosten Manufacturing (aircraft stick grips). Nice low key show.

Ajo is my hometown! At one time, that mine used to be the largest open pit mine in the world.
