I wondered who showed up, was intending to get there myself, but by the time I got the planes and batteries ready, walked out into a near whiteout! Decided to go to wallyworld and get my wife's present (probably a better idea, eh?) I even signed up at AMA Parkflyer membership - ah well, next week. Part of my delay was my indecision about which planes to take, based on the potential to get them sliced up! The other part was that I did get some flying in, took the dog out right after dawn, clear, wind was only about 5-6mph, temp in double digits (10-12!) so had to get the Red Pete out on her new skis. Had to relearn the takeoff process, lots of up ele, and steer on ground with rudder (I use ailerons to turn her, so kinda forgot the lt stick) Once learned it was fun! Got about 12 minutes in before the fingers got too cold. Good thing it's only about 100 ft to the house!
