When we left Sunday we flew south to Great Harbour cleared out of there and we split up shortly after takeoff for our crossing. Terry and I went direct Fort Pierce about 200 miles of open water where we cleared back in the US. I told Terry I'd throw him the raft if it quit as long as he didn’t buy another yellow one😂

    Linda said thanks for the offer but we will tread water and wait for a Russian trawler rather than get a blue Cub. Life is just too short to have to fly ugly airplanes. God I love that woman......

    Working are way back to Florida with 2 FX3s incredible trip so far. We picked them up last Fri finished flying the 40hrs off. Wife’s flew out Monday afternoons and we left Tuesday flew up to the San Juan Islands spent the next morning flying the islands then to Glacier Montana where a friend told us we could use his cabin, so we spent 2 days there flying around then headed south, we stopped to see Draco then to Grand Junction where a friend lives and owns the very first Carbon Cub and is building a EX3. The next morning we took off and flew over the arches then the canyon lands and monument valley and stopped for the night in NM. We’re right at 70hrs now. Tomorrow we’ll be headed towards Texas.

    Wow Chuck, those things are aggressive!

    We’ve got bears and I’d rather have them around than your variety of predator. Last week a friend told me they were up at our cabins and they had a sow grizzly with two one year old cubs hanging around the south end of the airstrip all the time they stayed. No problems at all.

    Some Shots from our Fly off. There’s lots to see 75 miles around Yakima. We put 85hrs on them in a week in half. More to come on our trip home.

    Oh no have a brand new set ready to go on. I decided to take the boat to the islands instead of working on the plane sounded like more fun😂 Headed back over this weekend to try the new float plane docking system I made for a boat.
