I had great fun that day with Waldo and he was the perfect host...so if he wanted to get footage of me piling one of his planes into that punji pit they call a corn field......well who am I to deny him that simple pleasure.

Oh, and as a side note.......the car I drove out there for my son failed inspection today.......they said it had rust on the lower body panels underneath the plastic! I put almost 3000 miles on that wagon and it has many years left on it.....Maine ought to be ashamed of itself.....it's a racket.......I wonder how much that's going to cost! Damn!

What a crock of crap, just a way to get more revenues for the State.

Waldo is it a walk of shame when you don't make it out to the runway? BTW have you lost weight.
Great video snowman and even better pic's.
My wife and I are just flabbergasted that they will fail a car for rust. What does that have to do with saftey. sounds like a scam the politicians came up with. here in good ole mo 1l2 the cars would be rejected and maybe a few politicians hung.
But then again what do you expect from a state that found frank james not guilty.

Thanks for your comments fellas. I told him to buy a quart of liquid bed liner and paint it up to the bottom of the doors and he didn't.... now he's got an estimate for just under $500 to fix the problem.......he should have listened to the old man. Maine is a beautiful state, but I wouldn't want to live there or anywhere else that has such strict rules. I've heard tell that some burbs have lawn police that go around measuring the grass...what is this world coming to? I ask you!

That crazy guy in Central PA that owned a body shop 10 years ago could knock that out for little of nothing, told you to come by.

DOG...I know you could have made her look like new, but I could never take advantage of a T---taholic's generous nature...unless they insist on me flying their planes to destruction.

Waldo, just as an after thought...remember that sweet deadstick landing I made....cutting room floor?

brathank Nice flight report glad to hear your loving the learning I think Thats exactly what I need to do also,

Stickhack Don't right off the possibility that the new Glow plug isn't bad It does happen and as a matter of fact it did happen last week to one of our guys he changed a new plug out and every time he gunned it the engine would quit, I told him to change the plug problem went away. As 9 times out of 10 when you remove the glow heater and the engine drops in idle or stalls its the glow plug.

well here is what you've all been waiting for, The Snowman visit and flights.
We had a great day and for not flying in about 3 years I don't think he missed a single beat. especially using someone elses planes and gear.
Maybe next time I'll balance the planes
