Hey Scott . . . maybe we could do a formation flight over the Dilute gang. I think there’s perhaps a fifteen knot area of overlap in the airspeed ranges of a C-210 and a J-3 Cub?

Regards,
Tom Charlton




15 knots is PLENTY.

But you have to lead. :D

Be more fun to mix in Dave and the King Air. :D

Tom -- <<maybe we could do a formation flight over the Dilute gang.>> I"m ready! I can motor along at 60 KIAS all day long. So, you'll have to use the high speed cruise power setting.

Need a travel companion for the trip back to FL? <g>

>>> Just because I don't speak Spanish?

I spent a week with Sue Critz at ELP years ago. She wanted me to see the VOR
approaches into TUS, but strongly recommended we go IFR via V12 due to U.S.
government paranoia about aircraft near the border.

Cap'n Randy. Sir:

"<<<< what's time to a hog"?>>>>

Ah, yes--I remember it well! The farmer was holding each hog up high so the hog could eat apples off of the tree. Somebody asked, ""Doesn't that waste a lot of time?" The farmer shrugged, than answered---"...what's time to a hog"?

Just for laughs, I plugged in KSEE-48X into Airnav's planner, with a range estimate of 140nm.

Wouldn't work, too many fuel stops. <g>

Hooray! Mitch just relayed the news to me Tom. If I knew you were coming I would have gone out to SEE to say hi. Maybe even baked you a cake! Glad to hear you enjoyed that airport. Maybe I'll get to see it at OSH or Sun N Fun one day,

Hi Patty,

Sorry to keep everyone in suspense. It’s been a bit of a whirl-wind of dashing to San Diego, Pre purchase inspection, getting my act together etc.

02/08/17, Wed : Flew to San Diego
02/09/17, Thu: Spent day doing J-3 Cub pre-buy inspection
02/10/17, Fri: Did a 1hr afternoon flight with owner.
02/11/17, Sat: Did compression check and agreed on price.
02/12/17, Sun: Nice ride to Brown Field and tour around San Diego in a pristine Luscombe Sedan, Drove to Aircraft Spruce in Corona to buy handheld com radio and "ifly" GPS. Bought lithium battery for extended avionics power.
02/13/17, Mon: Transfer purchase funds. Tinker with Cub, figure how to stash stuff for the trip home.
02/14/17, Tue: Install in Cub: Lash-up com radio, GPS, battery & cabling, Cabin heat cable. Service brakes. (cabin heat has very effectively kept my left foot toasty<g>)
02/15/17, Wed: Fly from Gillespie Field to overnight in Yuma, AZ.
02/16/17, Thu: Fly from Yuma, AZ ~ Marana, AZ ~ overnight in Las Cruces, NM.
02/17/17, Fri: Put the Cub in the barn due to rising winds and forecast storm system.
02/18/17, Sat: Fly from Las Cruces ~ Ft Stockton ~ overnight in Kerrville, TX
02/19/17, Sun: Anticipating deteriorating weather forecast.

* Generally following I-8 then joined I-10. With building confidence in the power plant been taking more short-cuts across the boonies. (And man-o-man there some boonies in the south west)
* C-85 starts easy and runs very strong and smooth. Been cruising mostly 5,500 ~ 7,500 MSL
* 2,400 RPM / 79 mph indicated.
* Been getting light to good tailwinds. 85 sometimes 95 ground speeds.
* Done one 3.4 hr leg and a couple of 3.2hr legs. (22 gal / 5 gph)
* The view out the windows of a J-3 Cub of the American South West is spectacular!

Regards,
Tom Charlton (in the midst of a challenging adventure)

Sorry Mase,
Good idea but . . . I’m not that guy. Took a few cell photos but sadly that’s it. Just sort’a had my plate full with everything else and basic San Diego to Sarasota mid-February trip prep. No time to smell the roses<g>.

Regards,
Tom Charlton
