Default Summer has FINALLY come to Michigan!

Just out and about, trying to make the most of our Upper Midwestern weather disadvantages, after lurking all winter long, reading about everyone else's flying fun...

Sorry for the quality of the first two... taken through vinyl tint on a Comanche with an iPhone...

Also of note: This is our families definition of "Family Time". I'm in the RV-4 and that's Mom and Dad in the -7

Gary,
We are in the late planning stages of a trip to MI.


Near Traverse City (Antrum County KACB).
Your RV-4 has a number pretty close to mine (262).

Happy Landings,
Daddyman

Glad to see the snow melted in the UP, and summer has arrived.

It's 111*F in Phoenx this afternoon, so I'm inclined to say "summer has arrived in Arizona, too". Anyone flying after 10am is pushing the limits.

Yes!! Summer has arrived in Michigan! Enjoy it for the next...... two months or so....... It sure is pretty up there. No place has better, clearer water - but its cold! Best thing is to just dive in. The outer layer of your skin gets numb and you just get used to it. Itís invigorating, and flying up there is a treat as well. Canít wait til my next return visit.

Daddyman,
Last time I was at Antrim County (Belaire) for a visit, I was able to hangar my plane there for $25. Well worth it in my opinion.

The departure picture was taken at the Houghton Lake Dawn Patrol last weekend. HTL. The other shots were enroute up to Mio, MI (51M) for breakfast. A little hole in the wall, greasy spoon called the Paddle Inn that's about a 70 yard walk from where we park the airplanes

Scott,
Thanks for letting me know of the potential hanger space.
I'll check it out.
