    Heck that was fun,I'm glad you enjoyed the ride. Glad you got to see what I go do after work. Very few people understand what these carbon cubs are capable of. 2 guys 1\2 fuel and it a beast. Give me a shout when your back around Iíll go show you one of the tight ones🤣. That 10-15 tailwind Would of made it almost impossible yesterday. I had a guy at the show tell me 29s -31s arent needed and he could land anywhere do anything I could with 26s🤦 Guessing he should of been in the back seat.
    People just donít understand the safety aspect of the bigger bushwheels and a good Suspension,they are invaluable to me. Unless you are just physically not able to get on the plane it makes no since not to have them. Itís only 21/2Ē higher the the door. You ever have a problem it can handle a tremendous amount of abuse with out hurting you or the plane.

    Iím sure there is a ton of video somewhere floating around from when there having there mud events and I stop by to play it looks like everyone has a iPhone out,had a super cub follow me over there one day he didnít want any part of it.

    Mike you might want to check see if there still GEN3 on the Red1😱

    Sure will take you up on the invite Chuck. The more I thought about your demo flight yesterday, the more and more impressed I am with the SS. You can fly one of these halfway across the country at a reasonable speed and fuel burn, then land it in the most challenging conditions imaginable, and it comes back for more. What other plane can do that? Pretty small list

    A great afternoon in Chucks bad boy, 16 mph tailwind to the other coast in my SS , a filet mignon with crab topping and a cold Sam Adams when I got home. I had the world by the a$$$ yesterday. Thanks Cubcrafters and to the black angus for the filet😄😄Thanks again Chuck
    Text me if there is a Carbon Cub airlift for eggs Sunday. Wx doesn't look great right now

    Here ya go Carbon Cub play ground. I really donít get in the mud object is to land between the mud holes. Can be a bit challenging when there a 100 trucks and ATV running around.

    Took 4 CC to Everglades city for lunch then brought back 60lbs of stone crabs. $38 Lb ouch. Then out to a friends ranch to measure for new gates. Her granddaughter wanted a ride. No I didnít go upside down but from that angle it looked like it.

    More than one way to get pinched! I'm sure they were good.
    Judy and I made our way to Maine earlier in the week to visit Dan Default had a couple lobster rolls in Portland along the way. Just plan good eating.

    Yep, nobody asked how much we just told them how many LBS we wanted. It was $18Lb last year. So $38 was just a little shocker. They were good!!!

    Always fun coming home from GA by way of ST Johns river. We stopped at 4 different sand bars to say hi to the air boaters. The hill is know to the locals as BS hill. Quite a few stopped and weíre pretty sure there hasnít ever been a plane on top of it before. The young girls there ended up being exchange students from Germany.
