Sounds like a great time. WYS is on my list of places to do a fly-and-camp trip. That part of the country is just amazing.

Default Minnesota!

We made good time east.
Over nighted at Sky Harbor DTY. It is on a barrier Island on Lake Superior, near Duluth, MI.
We camped next to our plane. Walked the The beach, marveled at all the sea planes. J3 on floats, 180s C206s a Taylorcraft! all on floats. The fuel hose is long.
There are two Beech 18s on floats here. They are used to commute to a private resort in Canada. Seems the owner sends his friends and customers up there every week all summer. The pilots say they are getting paid to fish!
Next!,,, Mackinac I

Default Own the Farm

Fog changed our plans.

We diverted south to a friends farm near Plymouth, Indina. This family sailed west and returned to the British Virgin Islands 4 years later when I was working there in the 70s and 1980s. They rounded the world in their 44 footer. Started with 2 kids and returned with 3. Carol and I love to spend time on the farm. Horses, a lake to swim in, fresh garden vegies. Store bought hooch. Life is good.
We are foged in today, and we don't care.

Plymouth? Gee whiz, Jay ... you're about 15 minutes from me. No fog here, just gray overcast. Supposed to be nice later on.

Too bad I'm working today. You guys could fly up to 3C1 when you're done on the farm and hang with us at the lake for a day or two. Unfortunately, this coming weekend we'll be out of town.

At least honk and wave as you fly over ...

Default on the farm

Life is good on the farm. John see you back at RV Central.

Alex, no Bose yet. Looking forward to the new head set.

Smokey wish we could see you, but we are going to stay here a few days.

IF, the WX Gods smile on us, we will fly up to the thousand islands of N York before we head home to meet with John.

John, Not sure where Salem is, I did not put your Phone # in my phone, mine is 817 271 0594

We plan to sail in Lake Michigan this weekend. Then some horse riding around the farm. Hope we dont have to put up hay.
