Great news Tom. The deal went through, and you got a ride in Mike's Sedan. Did Mike show you the EAA Chapter at Brown? Looking forward to more updates of the trip. Happy and safe travels!

I've been following your purchase on Avsig.

Thanks for posting.

Safe rest of flight.

Enjoy!

Wow Tom. Congrats and sounds like a great trip. Big system moving into Dallas tonight.

Al Benzing and I went out and did three practice approaches in IMC with ceilings about 600 feet at Tyler and a bit higher when we returned to Addison. Instrument departure out of here, DP and STAR to return. Quite a workout.

You're doing much more enjoyable flying I'm sure!

Welcome back to flying!

>>>and the Piper factory in Pennsylvania. <<

I remember the first time I picked up a Pawnee at Lock Haven. As I climbed, I wondered ...why does that red light flash. Then I stopped looking over the nose, and out at the wings!

Old airplanes. I have the same issues When I was younger and didn't mind standing around and preheating for an hour or so, I had an insulated jumpsuit for winter flying.

(Now, I just wait for it to get warmer. <g> )

Hi Patty,
Thanks for the point-out on this one.
I was look'n all over the USA for the right one to buy.
Other than distance from home it met all of my criteria:
* C-85-12 (Can be equipped with a starter if desired)
* Recent rebuild on engine.
* New fabric covering.
* Extra10 gal fuel tank in the wing.
* All new control cables.
* sealed struts.
* Upgraded disk brakes.

It's been running really good and is very easy to start.

Tell ya what: that Luscombe Sedan is a real Cadillac of an aero plane.

Did Mike show you the EAA Chapter at Brown?



I saw the Chapter building. Mike introduced me to a bunch of interesting folks at both Brown and Gillespie Fields. Ha, at Brown, I was impressed with that hanger full of antique cars and other stuff.

Southern CA, AZ, NM and western TX incredibly beautiful from the Cub!
Weathered in in Kerrville, TX at the moment. Strong gusty winds low ceilings and rotten visibilities most of the day. Almost headed out mid-afternoon but discretion prevailed.

Hi Dave,
Thanks, and ya, storm just passed through Kerrville tonight. Apparently a very nasty portion over San Antonio just to the SE of here.

Dave, over the years, aviation has provided so many fascinating and disparate challenges for me, IMC being one of many. I’m so grateful to have been able to indulge so many of them: Seaplanes, Sailplanes, Aerobatics, Multi engine, Sling-Wings, Charter operations, Dope –n- fabric work, Flight instruction, ultra-lights, mowing airport grass, Beech 18s, Cessna 208s, Stearman biplane and about fifty other kinds of airplanes, even the occasional Piper Cub. The list of fun is far longer than that, it’s just that it’s all been so good. But mainly it’s the people, what amazing people one comes to know in our special fraternity.

Hi Stephanie,
Florida boy here just has layers. Was use’n all of em for a time<g>.

Generaly my philosophy with a Cub is:
If it ain’t warm enough to fly with the door open . . . it ain’t warm enough to fly.
That said, I do need to get this yellow bird back home. (where it is warm<g>)

Regards,
Tom Charlton
