    Looks like winter is here. I flew over to DLS from Oregon City to meet up with another Kitfox. I flew down the Columbia River Gorge then back direct over the Cascades next to Mt Hood.
    As you can see the snow pack is starting early this year.

    On the way back I averaged 165 mph ground speed. Wish I could always find this kind of tailwind!

    Looks great Scott - beautiful clear (and cold ? day). WE are in summer here but had a cold snap today - it was 1c when flying - Coolant temps were a bit low - must remember to tape up radiator like you cold climate people!

    Again, wonderful pics - you really use your Kitfox!

    cheers

    Ross, you inspired the post. I had just watched the video you just posted. The outside air temp is in the upper left of the Efis pic. I saw ground speeds as high as 176. We are in the middle of a cold clear weather snap.

    Great to see you flying your new Kitfox. It's fun to follow and watch your progress.

    Paul, hope you were planning to stay down there a while, 'cause it's been dumping rain up here around your homestead and appears it will continue. (I'm NW of Ft. Worth for Thanksgiving )

    Gary - I bet you're really missing the little snow storm we just had.

    Gotta deal with the aftermath tomorrow. Mostly concerned about the Texas panhandle.

    A group of us flew to the arid Karoo town of Graaff Reinet to watch the Rugby World Cup Semi-Finals with a friend.
    In the pictures are: The group overlooking the Valley of Desolation, Dave (Bubi) Hartmann's Super cub, Landing together to shoot the breeze on a remote strip and getting mighty close to some buffalo. A great weekend had by all, and the Kitfox was faster than all except the C182!

    I have just uploaded the third of three videos of a flight of three from just South of Sacramento, California to the little town of Hayfork in the Trinity Alps of North Western California. These videos were taken from my first Model IV.
