BTW no one forced me to Join AMA on this thread. All along I had plans to Join. I said so in my opening post.

LittleCrank Thanks for the comments. Very much appreciate it.

AD thanks for your comments. I see your point to my open ended question about Eco system damage.

I think there was discussions of closing Luke AFB but it never happened. The AFB is now a F22 training center.

There is tons of State Trust Land in PHX area that could be used for flying. If I want to form a club I would certainly get a special use permit. AMA may be required to be approved for the activity. At this time I have no desire to form a club.

There is plenty of surrounding Indian land to the south west of me. It may be next to impossible to approach Chief Little Big Horn to get permission to fly there.

Sometimes sarcasm gets me into trouble as well, not only online, but just in normal conversations. My attempt to elicit a couple of chuckles sometimes ends up making me sound like a complete bozo, and people misunderstand and think I'm on the "wrong" side.

In the winter, my MAAC approved site is closed, but there are great options. Lakes freeze over and suddenly a bunch of new "land" is created. You can walk out onto the lake without trespassing, and have a huge area to fly that is flat and has no obstacles.

Thanks for the comments Jovanx. Your making me cold talking about lake freeze. I freeze in anything below 60 degrees.

Here is a short video of landing a sailplane at one of my winter spots. It is a lake at the base of a mountain, and no fingers were frozen during the making of this video.
