    Default Newbie out n around Northeast

    Got Carbon Cub some time on it after it's annual and flew to Island Bobs to extract the Old J3. Gave it a wash, now ready for a dunk in the Hudson River and a trip to the Adirondacks. Better late than never.

    So had a chance to get out last night to the Adirondacks with a few friends, to an awesome remote spot to just unwind if only briefly. Left the Sacandaga Lake at 7:07 and arrived just about 8. Great branch of one of our well know creeks here. Had some chow, a beer or 2 and a swim wth the Brooke trout. Hard to beat this anywhere. Cub Driver2 and some others enjoyed the fun.

    Today invited over to Murphy's Warbirds. A well know P51 driver and instructor nationaly he had a special project for me to see. The only Spitfire MKI in the country. It can't be anything but cool. It was hot! Literally! This was the prototype for all the Spitfires to come after. As such, it has just one small radiator and one small oil cooler. It can't be taxied or idled as it overheats quickly. Fun end to the day.

    Wednesday was severe clear and CAVU all the way North so I jumped in the FX and headed that way. Up through Lake George, across to Gore Mtn., down thru Indian Lake to Speculator for eggs and bacon. Once nourished, did a lap around Oak Mtn ski center and headed west. There is plenty of ice and even snow on the edges. Bush wheels would have been fine and even 8:50s. Flew over Piseco Lake airport, another nice access point to the Adirondacks for flyers any time of year. On to the west to Canada Lake, the Caroga Lakes, Royal Mtn and then turned for home. Wish I'd had time for more. I can't decide still if skis or floats is more fun??? Guess I will continue to experiment. Yankee 1

    Today we took a hop North in the Adirondacks and today wife Leigh was up for the trip too. Left Saratoga on skis and wove our way up the Sacandaga River Valley to Lake Pleaaant for breakfast in Speculator. This is a favorite haunt and has been all my life. Just 37 miles north of home but you sure get a different feel.

    We traversed Lake Algonquin with a race track on the ice and made our way up the river where Oak Mtn Ski Center came into view. Further North was bright blue sky but we stayed south and shared the different perspective snow gives the landscape. Actually seeing the curves and cuts. In the summer by float plane, itís just a bed of green below.

    After breakfast we went west to Honandaga Lake and then turned South to give our friends on black creek lake a low pass. Jeff Irwin was not there with his SC so we kept motoring flying over some areas Leigh has not seen in Winter. Flew past Royal mountain ski center also just because we have friends skiing there today and letís face it skiers love low flying planes. I thought everyone did. Back to the reservoir where a big ice fishing derby was on and those folks really do love low flying planes. They love beer more though. We were back in Saratoga by 1pm. Yup it was awesome and another gift of a day.
