Besides yesterday, the weather has not been flyable.  At least near Lake Superior.  Ice is almost formed across Chequamegon Bay, then waiting patiently for the thickness of the ice to increase.  More snow predicted for Saturday.  Off to a better start than last year.  The 140 never even saw skis last year due to lack of snow.  Hope to post pics soon...

Up here in northern Mn, still not enough snow for the skis.  I flew my Avid Flyer MK IV today on wheels with almost 3" of snow on my strip.  Did make a landing on Big Sturgeon where a friend of mine has his fish house out.  He said there was about 6" of ice.  Saw lots of 4 wheeler tracks on the local lakes, although most were following the shore. Take care,  Jim Chuk

No snow but had some fun with the crew today, Mt Bobs and the Middlebury Vt for the chili cookoff. Awesome weather today.

I put the skis on my Avid Flyer today.  We still don't have a lot of snow up here in northern Mn, but with the rain and then snow we got on Saturday it made the snow we have real dense, so I didn't want to stay on wheels and chance going over on my nose (again).  Hopeing for more snow soon.  Take care,  Jim Chuk

I hope you folks are more successful this week than we were last weekend.  We were forecast to have 4" of new snow on top of a beautiful 10" base.  Instead, all has melted down to about 4" total.  Send some snow north, the 140 wants to play!   Cheesy

I've flown my Avid three different days this week on the skis.  +12 Friday and today, but heat is improving in the plane as I get more air leaks sealed up.  Didn't wear gloves today!  Snapped a few pics of the plane today, but can't figure how to add them to this message.  Take care,  Jim Chuk
