Last flight of the year?

We enjoyed an unusually warm day for November 26th today, mid 50s and the
wind wasn't too bad except for the occassional strong gust.

I got 3 flights in on the Tiger Stick. Good thing, too. Freezing rain and
snow blowing in overnight into tomorrow and the forecast for next week calls
for more snow and temperatures down in the teens.

Sounds like it's about time to put the after run oil to good use and put the
glow planes up until spring. Most of my flying for the next few months will
be on the G3 simulator, I'm afraid.

No to gloat (but I'm gonna.. heheh) but I'll be flying pretty much all
winter. Ahh, the joys of $3.00/gallon gasoline, giant mortgages and
300+ days of sunshine a year..

Gas here is $2.25 and a decent home can still be had for $250k. Oh, and you
can fly just about 360 days a year here!

Got a GWS Pico J3 Park Flyer in car. 0 degrees F this morning (that's
-18 C for those metrically inclined), and I fully intend to pop out
during lunch and sling it around the nearby park. I don't know that
I'll ever seriously go back to wet engines for this very reason.

I have electrics, glow, and gas planes, and I'm not planning to go exclusively
to any one power system.

Of course, we DO get more than one day of summer here in Nebraska ;-)
