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

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




I hear that. 3.2~3.5 hour legs are as long as I like to go. My longest-ever one-day trip was 9.5 hours with three fuel stops. It's wearing as hell and I'd prefer not to try to do days like that back-to-back.

Email me if you're going to be stuck in NOLA, as I know a guy there. ess emm lastname aaaah peoplepc dahht kahm.

Just left New Orleans , in Pensacola....wet day, good for ducks, not so much Cubs. Hope it clears out soon for you.

Or...add a slicker to your gear!

John - N Number? He doesn't need any N number....Tom flies below the radar!

Hi Jeff,

Today was Brenham, TX ~ Jennings, LA. 7,500’ alt moderate tailwind, probably averaged 90 mph GS.

Been chase ‘n the tails of this system for several days. Overnighting in Jennings.
, LA tonight. Each day have to await mid-day for departure and only able to get in maybe a 180kt leg before I catch up to it again.

Regards,
Tom Charlton

Hi John and Scott,
John: N92652
Scott: No transponder, no ADDS-B . . . stealth! Controllers from California to Florida wondering just what is that ubiquitous blob slowly moving across their display.

Hey Randy [Re: Tom Charlton]
      #435837 - 02/22/17 12:26 AM

Hi Randy,
Was proceed ’n along east bound this afternoon in my newly acquired J-3 Cub and dropped in to Jennings, LA for fuel.

Came across a Cajun guy (I can barely understand what he’s say’n) name of “Aubrey Vidrine” Runs an FBO here, has a NA T-6 and says he’s an old P-51 flyer. Says he hasn’t seen you in a long time (almost said “in a coon’s age” but thought better of it) for me to tell ya hi and was ask’n how’s Randy doin?

Any how, is a real friendly guy, as many Cajuns are, and loaned me a car to get to the hotel for the night.

Regards,
Tom Charlton

Tom C:

Hey--if you're still in Pensacola and have time, go by Pensacola Aviation Center and tell Bill Hudgens (the owner) I suggested you say hello. I've known Bill since he was in hiigh school and we were both working for his father (Bob) owner at Montgomery (AL) Aviation. Bob was one of my heroes and teachers.

I remember him from Montgomery. I sat at Pensacola Aviation yesterday for about 4 hours, great FBO....pizza and hot dogs, or crew car if needed.
It was raining all day, so we opted for the free food and a nap.
