    Steve , looks like you're having a Kitfox bucket list summer and it was great to finally meet you at OSH and check out your sweet ride. Have fun. Bruce N199CL

    Looks like a great way to make the long flight home, do it with long breaks. My back is still fatigued after that long trek home from OSH. Guess its time I edit my video down to something reasonable that people will be willing to sit through. Enjoy the month or two Steve, Monsoons may be gone for you when you return. They were certainly added stress on my trip through AZ.

    Thanks guys. Was good seeing you and everyone at Oshkosh.

    A quick trip to Esterville, IA airport to schedule a Citabria inspection and found this in the City hangar. Missing some cylinders
    but otherwise looks like a blast. Floats are carbon fiber.$$$$

    (Two ship to Esterville.)

    A stop in St. James , MN for some economically priced 100LL. $3.85 per gallon.👍
    Nice little municipal airport. A perfect evening for flying.

    Skies are not always Kitfox friendly in Minnesota. Nice to know the Super Sport is snug in itís temporary hangar.

    Still in Minnesota since leaving Oshkosh. Flying as much as weather allows and visiting as many grass strips as possible.

    Short flight to Blue Earth, MN for their flight breakfast. Lots of local fight breakfasts this time of year.

    Left downwind for St.James, MN airport and some 100LL Av-gas at some decent price$.

    Perfect early evening flying. Glassy smooth air.😀

    The patchwork of farm fields of green are soothing for these Arizona eyes.

    So many times Iíve wished I had amphibs on my Kitfox.
    Spent Labor Day weekend on beautiful Bay Lake east of Brainerd, MN. Perfect shoreline to beach a set of floats with a Kitfox attached.

    Beautiful Steve. Looks like your having a great time. I had only one opportunity to use a grass strip on my way home. Whish there were more like it here in CA. Fly safe.

    Added one more grass strip to my tally today.
    Wells, MN and the biggest so far. Smooth as a pool table top.
    A little blustery but we had it all to ourselves. Did a few touch and go circuits and a couple simulated engine outs
    while my brother got a new tach installed in his Citabria.😀👍

    Almost wide enough to land crossways.

    The green fields are quickly turning yellow then brown now and we saw a few fields of corn being combined all
    ready. While temps in Arizona are still topping out at a little over 100 degrees, fall feels very close by here.

    Nice to see you are having a good time in Mn. Up here in the northern part leaves are starting to turn color pretty good. Should be real pretty soon, and then the drab no leaves look.
    Sure a nice time to be here. Couldn't take that 100 degree stuff of the south. JImChuk
