John,

Per my call, I'll check with the wife to see if we can join you guys, at least for a few days of skiing and lying..

Default Would be interested....but...

I would also like to bring our own equipment.....

So are there folks who have done mods to carry skis? I think the gear and "essential" clothing is not a W&B issue, if you have a reasonable net wt, but packing skis would be a space challenge to say the least.

If there are solid mods to pocket 2 pair of skis in a tube through the bulk head AND be safe with the potential of falling into the elevator controls...I am all ears. (Note mod of existing plane and minimal permanent weight add).

I did not search archives as I am relatively new...so if moderators want to kick this to a new thread, or this is something "well know and developed" feel free to either point me to the existing knowledge base, or start a new thread.

A hot topic for spouse and I who love to ski and fly and children at a stage to allow a weekend get away so that we can revert to newly weds again

Default Wish I could

I will be there again in spirit. We are gearing up for 3 weeks in Roswell, NM. If anyone is going to be out that way, stop for a day and Ill give you a guided tour of the T-6B!

There is a 3 year rotation, so I should be cleared to join for the next two years!

Ski Safe and post pics!

Darin

To clarify a bit, we are not flying our RVs to go skiing. We are flying commercial to Denver and taking a Suburban etc to the mountains. The trip is about skiing and talkin airplanes not flying them. I have no intention of getting anywhere near the Rockies in Jan in my RV6A. Wrong mission!!!

John Morgan

PS. As of now we have 4 men and 4 women ( 2 don't ski) for the week plus the possibility of a local family of 4 for the first 2 nights only.

Wish I could make time/money for it. I don't ski or snowboard enough anymore. The pic on the Front page was taken at Whitefish Mountain where we spent 3 days with the kids and grandkids. GREAT family and friends fun time.

Enjoy your week.

I'll be on a work trip to Kirtland/KABQ that weekend if USAF can get their act together. Unfortunately my employer will not let me take my RV, even at my expense.

I can fix USAF's Pavehawk fleet but not fly my simple little airplane to do it...

Where are they skiing? Do you know? Snow looks good! I'm asking because we are headed out that way in a month.
