We went out for flight the other day, flew for about three hours. Great weather for the flight . After cruising over a few private airstrips, sand and rock pits and a bunch of field sprinklers around New Richmond we refueled and flew to Cumberland. There we bought gas and the manager offered us the courtesy car to go into town and get lunch. When we got back Randy's BeLite wouldn't start
After the mechanic tried to help us jump it it was clear it was a starter issue. So I borrowed a hammer from him whacked the starter a few times and everything worked just fine and we thanked him for the help and flew back to New Richmond. There was a large float plane there getting engine work. I think this ia the kind of plane we took to Catalina Island (california) when I was a kid.

I like the photo of the Kolb snuggled up to the Grumman Albatross (had to
Google to find out which Grumman it was).

Would have loved to have had a chance to fly something like that.

That is a great picture of your Kolb next to the seaplane. Looks like a great trip. We’ve been having great flying conditions over here in Michigan too. I’ve put 50 hours on the Firestar so far this season. It’s a lot of fun flying into all the grass strips up here. Did you go over to Oshkosh this year? I spent a couple of days at the show. Had a great time.

Didn't make OSH this year. In fact, it has been 11 years since I did OSH. Got to be more of a hassle than it was fun. I don't do well with the "patrol boys" and all the regulations. Wink

I didn’t fly over John. I took the Badger across Lake Michigan to Manitowoc, Wisconsin and a friend of mine who lives in Appleton picked me up. We had a great time. No flying hassles. I’d like to fly over the lake sometime. But it’s 64 miles over water from Ludington,Michigan to the airport in Manitowoc,Wisconsin. It’s probably a crazy idea without floats.

I decided to fly the Lake from Manitowoc to Ludington one year on the way home from OSH. Weather was good and forecast to stay that way. No problem, I had my brand new self inflatable life vest. Only 48 minute flight with ground speed of 80 mph. Got about 10 miles off shore and the horizon disappeared. Everything all around me was blue gray. Almost like flying into a cloud. I turned around, could see the horizon on the shore line and headed back west, then south to Chicago. After a little thinking about what I had just about tried, I decided that flying the Lake was not on my bucket list anymore.

Sounds like a wise decision, John. I’ve taken off my list too. I’ve turned into a grass patch flyer in my old age. George

I've found a hammer to be as useful as any other tool in my tool box!
