Yep. Went out the other day and saw about 300 elk just west of ola.

Finally got out again as well and got Monique into the elk in the same area, Lots of elk just below the snowline. Nice calm air for the new pilot!!

Mineral Canyon and Fry Canyon in my new, to me, aircraft. Second upstream canyon on upstream right for Mineral climb out( this ac doesn’t need it! Giggle insert). Enter Green River canyon downstream with minimum energy and descend about 1000’, increasing flaps, while maneuvering the canyon. Final comes up fast on final upstream turn to left. Both ends of strip soft, middle good. I would not want to try this when wet, pants or no pants. Boat launch with what looked like port-a-potties <1 mile downstream, directly under left turn to final. Cow turds on Rwy. James, you and Katie will enjoy this. Better overfly to check out the upstream climb out first. Parking pull off loop downstream 1/3.

If I keep landing at places like this, they surely will remove themselves. Right now, I’m getting to know her and trying to financially recover. I do have some plans. The nose pant really needs to go. The mains are oversized, so we’ll see. It’s been so dry that they might not be a problem for a bit. I’m roughing out a strip at my place, which has a high clay content. Should I complete it, they’ll be gone completely. A time crunch is rapidly approaching, as KAIB is closing, without access to crosswind dirt, for 6 months. I’ll probably base out of KTEX for that period. I’m zooming ridiculously fast, for a 182, and have some travel plans that I want them for. Of course, the prop and 550 might have helped that velocity a bit.

I’m a couple weeks into this new plane adventure. I go to the hangar for a maintenance day, and the decide a test flight is needed. Besides, dirt seems to be doing some good. Some gra-do fell out from under the dash and the directional gyro has progression adjustment again. I’m optimistically waiting for the tanks to refill themselves, too.

Congratulations! AC looks great and know you'll enjoy the 550. How long is your strip going to be? KAIB must be setting up to compete with KTEX.

Hi Tom! Just under 2000’ if I put gates on the road access. I killed many trees, tore up the backhoe and got complaints of out of control burning, before discovering it’s not quite as flat as I thought it was. Sue doesn’t want me to buy a bulldozer, even if I name it after her. Currently shopping for hundreds of feet culvert. It’s much easier to just go flying(rosen visors arrived last night, wonder if they’ll notice I’m not at work, again).

The plane spent it’s life on the coast near your home. You can rub your burger on the surfaces, if lacking seasonings. Maybe some TEX fresh water will help-hope it is in a liquid state.

I can't imagine better ski flying conditions than yesterday. Cloudless, light winds, snow loose enough to be smooth but packed enough to be slippery. Spectacular scenery doesn't hurt either.

I should be flying toward the end of the month. I'd love to do Mineral Canyon, Fry Canyon again, and Mexican Mountain. We dropped the Bo into the Green River canyon and overflew Mineral Canyon but it was just way too hot to land there. We even drove down to scope out the strip, which is in nice condition. Still too hot at over 100 degrees. April should be nice for all of this if it is still dry.

My birddog has hard points under the wings. I know some owners put mock rockets and bombs on them. I assumed that was legit because the Army put real rockets and bombs on them and a lot of other stuff too. Your photo makes me wonder if I could hang a bike or storage pod under the wings :scratch: .
