I think the locals address that by just driving faster...

"Rural Kansas" is redundant.

I was stationed in Topeka for a few years... it is actually quite hilly there.

Got to fly a short flight yesterday in a really nice J-3 with a C85. Belongs to a friend of a friend. They forced me into the back seat. Beautiful 3,400ft grass strip. Did a takeoff and landing, a few wingovers and some tight turns. Wa-hoo! Dam that was just as much fun as I remember! Ha . . . first time I ever flew a Cub with an intercom & headset!
Best no one leave their Cub in an unlocked hangar . . . T.C. is on the prowl<g>.

Regards,
Tom Charlton

You're not in the right place at the moment, but try a Cub on skis some time.

I once had an hour of dual in a 65hp J-3 on floats, with an instructor who was a lardbutt like me...that poor thing managed to get off the water somehow <g>.

Hi Ray,
Thank goodness . . . cause I also don’t own a snow shovel<g>.

Never did skis but, back about 1965, me and a buddy flew his T-Cart on wheels, off of the ice, on Sun Rise Lake, NH. We even landed at night in bright moonlight. Was pure magic. We met and became friends with a family that lived at the lake year round. What great memories.

Hope all’s well with you and yours this winter in Philly.

Regards,
Tom Charlton

Have you thought of a Super Cub?

Of course in Cub yellow with black stripe.

Same fun airframe, and you don't have to push the throttle up to simulate less HP.

Hi Terry,
Moot point but I’ve never flown a Super Cub. Also, to be honest, need to keep the cost down. Ain’t no cheap Super Cubs. For a Cub that hopefully won’t need any major work, for a while, I expect will set me back in the $35/$40K range.

I’d consider a Wag-Aero Cubby though.

A basic J-3 with its cylinders hang’n out in the breeze would suit me well. I will opt for at least a C85-12 for our warm humid Florida summer afternoons.

Regards,
Tom Charlton
