Very nice looking. Do you pick up any speed? Looks like they would be less drag than with the tires and such mounted.

Joe,
It indicates about 95 mph :? but my airspeed tends to read a little high anyway and especially in the colder weather. In the summer (with wheels) I seem to true out around 82-85 at 2150 rpm according to my GPS. I'll have to try it with skis one of these days. The nice thing about skis is all the available 'emergency' landing fields. The down side is dealing with all the snow, cold weather problems and preheat. You just can't preflight, jump in and go.

Hey, those Aeronca's together look familiar!

I was at Blakesburg too, I think in that same row way down at the far end in a white and green Cessna170B.

Here is a picture of my landing strip in La Paz county Az.
Wheeler Ranch on the right and my new neighbor on the left. The neighbor is in the process of building a hangar.

A couple of the neighbors landing on 17, coming in for a breakfast flight, they live 6 miles north of the ranch.

This Piper flew over and he noticed I had a camera and not a gun, so he landed.

Some time in the future would be good, maybe for breakfast. I will let you know when I get back from Ca., how's bacon and eggs sound with your coffee?

Stay in touch, I have a flight from SoCal on the 7th or 8th of April and might be able to stop there enroute to Phoenix.
