    actually after the water goes away it takes some time for it to dry up. one year I landed on it and threw mud all over the plane. looked like I took it mudden. I was afraid to get out of the plane. so I took back off. this time it looked pretty good, I was able to get out of the plane. the tail wheel went down in the dirt about 3 inches. not to bad.

    I estimated the roll out about 150ft. I three pointed and the tail wheel in the dirt helped stop. On take off I raised the tail right away and lifted off about 50ft from where I hit the throttle. you can't see it but the sides drop off all around at least 15 ft. right where I stopped it drops down 5 to 10ft on a safe gradual. I've rolled over that in the past. just a fun spot to land. you end up coming in just off the water with 200 ft sides on the right and on the left about 500 it's pretty narrow. come around the corner and there it is. fun. definitely a kitfox landing spot.

    Hello All!
    I am from South Africa, and I recently sold my C170B to get the money to buy my dream.....
    A Kitfox5 ZU-DEC with lion pawprints on it. It has a Franklin engine in it, and this is going to be her home base. The Farm - beef and wool and the hangar is right next to my house.
    Very excited!

    Nice plane, and it looks like a neat airport to fly out of, and a place to both work and have fun.
