    I just noticed your colour is similar to Kitfox Jim's plane (second plane to take off in the video). Maybe that is the KitFox you were refering to when you said great colour scheme. I believe Jim had similar family input on his colour.

    Default Lake Hume, Australia

    Hi all,

    Let me get in first and wish you all a great christmas and new year! Of course, we down under are into summer and the mornings are wonderful for flying. Yesterday I headed to Lake Hume that is a short 30 mile flight. The lake is full at the moment after a very wet winter providing
    plenty of water for irrigating downstream and a wonderful summer playground for holiday makers. A friend has just put in a 400m grass strip on the edge so expect some pics of that soon too! Although summer here, it was 10'c OAT so lovely flying.

    All the best for the coming festive season and great flying to you all!

    cheers

    Thanks for the wishes, Ross!
    We are experiencing a hell of a drought here, with the temp at around 37 to 39 Deg C the other day!
    I went to Addo elephant park a week ago and went through 43 deg Celsius - Ouch!
    I have landed on my bush strip that I mentioned I wanted to establish some time ago.
    I will post some more pics when I can and try and put in a link to uTube.
    Have a very blessed Christmas, All!

    Reid, you are right about the drought and heat. I was in Mozambique a month ago and it was at least 38 C every day and very dry. I went there to help inspect a Cessna Caravan. That was my first time in Africa. Hope you get some rain soon. Merry Christmas.

    Thanks so Much Phil!

    Water is critical now and I am juggling the 3 springs (12500 litres per day) on the farm to keep the animals watered.
    There are farmers in my area that are worse off than I am.

    But as an old uncle of mine said, "There has never been a drought in history that wasn't broken by a good rain!"
    We keep trusting....

    A really blessed Christmas to you and yours.

    Had a break in our Summer North West weather pattern, so headed to New Zealand's South Island West Coast.
    The first image is the Stockton plateau and coal field. It is so windswept that hardly anything can grow there. approximately 2000 ft amsl

    We landed at Granity and walked across to the restaurant for lunch.
    The tide was coming in a little quicker than anticipated. The owner of the Alpi 200 made an early departure off the remaining sand.
    I departed a bit later

    Hi Dusty
    You guys in NZ are spoiled rotten with all the neat places to fly. The other great thing is that you don`t have thousands of miles to travel in order to find these places!!
    I am heading down again January 16th but will spend most of the time in the BOP/Waihi Beach area. Will visit Bob Byal who flys a Storm, you may have met him at SAA meets
    Have a Merry Christmas and Super New Year.
    Cheers
    Don

    Sorry about that. The pix were right side up until I uploaded them to this site. Is there a way to rotate / edit on this site?
