Default Dog Gone Good Day!

Saturday was cold and clear in America's favorite Twin Cities, so Bernie and I decided it might be a good time to turn liquid BTUs into decibels and fun. We even brought some friends along for the ride!

Clear as a bell out there!


Showing the VAF Flag to the City on the Ice......


Moxie says wake me when we get to lunch.........


Landed and Parked at KOVL and Mox is ready for some ramp action!


Once inside the terminal - things got a little more relaxed. That's Bernie's Lucy along for the fun as well.


After lunch, the snoozin' was easy in the sun-warmed cockpit.....


Spied a ice track on a frozen lake on the way home......


Almost home, over Gopher VOR looking down the runways at KMIC and Downtown Minne!


Great day to fly - Moxie will tell you here near Lake Wobegon, my landings were smooth, my leaning was precise, and my radio work was flawless! Life is good with Dog as your Co-Pilot!!

Hope everyone had a nice RV Weekend!

Excellent pictures, as always, of that clear, high performance winter weather in MN, and a well trained co-pilot.

Default Hot air balloons

Not sure which way you headed, but did you catch a glimpse of the balloons from the Hudson Hot Air Affair?

Default No Balloons

We were on the west side of town - did not see any balloons, but when I fly over the St. Croix, I often do!
