    A Random Ramble

    Well, it was quite a winter. Between computers and pandemic and uprooted households, the crew got sort of dispersed.

    We have finally started to gather the bits together and at least we got a couple together on Friday. Found a rendezvous point at Grand Junction, CO and Moses03 and I were able to point our craft (an old, worn Cessna Mixmaster and a refurbed Piper Navajo) north, ending up at KEVW Evanston WY, right on the Utah border.

    No plan, just the idea that, if pilots gather, we'll find a reasonable destination about 170nm away that has, hopefully, a restaurant and a portapotti.
    See y'all whenever.

    Quick snap at KEVW:

    The 337 could not handle the ramble. Must be high alt of the Rockies and the bitter cold at 12,000'. (Succumbed to built-in failures or some such).

    Seen in better days:

    Headed north out of Twin Falls to Salmon, ID - KSMN. Weather was decent with a threat of low ceilings ahead, but generally a nice flight until Kevin discovered the Mixmaster didn't like the cold. Orbited until we saw he was safely down in a snowy field, then headed on to Salmon.

    Sounds like the C337 is done but he's taking his relief fund cheque and ordering a PC-12
