Finally, one day it all came together. Snow on the ground, airplane was in one piece, skis were ready, wind wasn't howling and visibility was more than an arms lenght.

Hey Bob; I've got a set of dollies to move the Champ around with, and; this might not be proper, but I put them on and taxied out to the snow. Had to shut down to take them off of course but it worked. I taxied real slowly too. A lot of work by days end but it was worth it.

You probably recognized the Champ from the Aeronca site where I'm the Red(neck) Barron. Don't know why I changed my handle here but I think it may have had something to do with some wheel landings that I was trying to work out on day that I joined this forum.  Huh
