Default Hot Mineral Springs of Saratoga WY

... Take a note Turbo. You can swim in 100F water when OAT is below freezing...

There is a windy place in Wyoming. So windy I couldn’t reach the place for six weekends. Today was the day. Light winds of 18 kts forecasted for all day at KSAA. I packed my swimming gear and left the base.




Checked the fishing competition in my parish








Then took a road toward Saratoga.



Elk didn’t care.



I looped around town to see if there is any activity at community pool.



Yes the springs are open. That’s how they look on short final rwy 23.

Larry, a jet center chief lineman, quickly tied me down. I hopped in a crew car and drove half a mile to the springs. Yes, I bought some gas...



Springs were open. I soaked in for 40 minutes. Life is good.





Then headed home. Stayed low, the winds aloft were howling at 50 kts in all directions.



Mustangs at 8,000 feet. Who the heck is bothering us?



Still had some gas left to play in the canyons.




No. The winds were calm.









Turbo come see me. There is an RV hotel in my village.

Roger on that Vlad. I?ve hunted elk in the mountains behind your little town and checked out the airport, thinking about how nice it would be to fly in, as opposed to the two day drive in my truck. Great area for outdoor adventures.

Rich thanks glad to hear from you brother! Great time was had at Princeton back in the days. If you visit my airport here in Utah you have a place to stay.

Are you still flying that Cruiser we were hunting? Drop me an email via this forum.

Yeah Vlad,---I was wondering about your move also. But I thought you were in Wyoming. What made you leave New York?? Did you retire??
