    Jim and Glenn are down from the warmth and comfort of ME and VT. Unfortunately Gorgon got weathered in so didnít make it down in his new EX3.We went to a pancake breakfast in Arcadia then went by A private strip where Jim keeps his plane then flew south along the west coast to Everglades City for Stone Crabs then stopped by a hunting camp.
    We had 4 CarbonCub SS, 1 S2, 1 FX3, 1 Super Cub,1 J-3 meet up for breakfast then a PA18 and 182 met us in Everglades for lunch.
    Fun day
    Chuck

    Those two can't be trusted together. Most likely scheming to open the new Spud farm/ pheasent hunting ranch. They are getting a jump on the new gun laws and the new facility will use only potatoe guns I suspect, very clever you two.

    They seem to be a little shady. Jim got to experience some of the native wildlife on the way down guess there was a over enthusiastic young lady in a boat as we flew by. 🤣

    You know what they say over on the SC forum "pictures or it didn't happen" on the other hand judging by his smile they both happenedto be hanging in the wind.

    Yesterday I got to experience as a passenger what a Carbon Cub will due do in the hands of a master. In all seriousness
    watching from the rear seat while Chuck took off and landed this airplane was shear joy and utter amazement. Conditions varied with winds, terrain and obstacles and while maintaining safe margins he simply made that bird sing, I was absolutely amazed! When I got back last night Judy also sang to me "shut up and go to sleep". It may be weeks before that happens easily again and it will be worth every wide awake moment.
    Thanks again Chuck!IMG_1286.jpg

    I should have stressed more that the girl I saw in that backwater spot in the 100000 island region must have been sick with the fishing and decided that the guy coming around the corner in that plane was going to get a show. Also I would not have used the word ďyoungĒ but impressive none the less

    From pancakes in the middle to stone crabs at the bottom we sure were shown a fun day. Great bunch of folks here
    i donít know about a Cessna or Beechcraft or any other owners agroup, but none are any more hospitable than this Cubcrafters family and the Supercub folks ,Especially Chuck and Karen. Great folks
    and I agree with Glenn it sure is a delight to watch Chuck make that Carbon Cub sing

    You missed another one today Chuck, was like a spring day. Jeff's brother had a little gathering at his camp on Black Creek Lake.
