    The fog was really bad when my son and I got to pheasant shoot we were invited to. Took Awhile just to find the feild. I have never been there before, thank goodness for 35s and acmes. We had a fun shoot and great food.

    Breakfast with the gang Saturday morning. Back yards are way to much fun. One way in and out. The challenge is kinda gone. Landing with 15-20 cross wind was easy. It was a little more challenging last night with a 15-20 on the tail. Still had plenty of room though.

    Looks like the Highlander did quite a lot better on takeoff. (edited) Also seems to have done well on the landings that qualified.

    From my perspective these STOL performance results don't mean very much unless the wind and density altitude is recorded. I see a left quartering head wind in the photo. How variable was the wind strength and direction?

    Florida Outdoor Expo asked if I could fly a cub in for the show. He convinced the Fairgrounds to let me land on the property. There was a guy in the elevator at the concrete plant, he looked a little surprised as we went by. Trying to get a better video quality.
