Question

18 this morning when I took off. What a beast this thing is during cold temps. 189 knots at 6500feet and 2600rpm. I don't know how that compares to other RV8's but **** I like it.

I spent most of my life in Florida, where the scenery never changes. Colorado has more eye candy. Photo from this morning.

Default Nice

What kind of prop is that? Appears like a nice swept design I'm not familiar with?

Here is something you don't see often in San Diego.

A dripping faucet at the hangar created an ice stalagtite about a foot tall!
Temps were down to 25 degrees this morning.

The mountains north east of San Diego got a lot of snow, which is not very common. These are the foothills east of Temecula and Hemet.


That is about as cold as I can handle. Thankfully, the temps later this week will be back in the upper 70's! Normal winter weather again.
