    Headed out of Mexico (near the invisible dry mouth of the Colorado River and found our way to Laguna AAF (KLGF). TK found a new way to make his parking spot obvious...

    Ahh but......in my defense the Ultra Cub has very twitchy brakes and I was in a hurry to get to the destination as I forget to reset the time on TO and it was getting dark....FAST! The Ultra Cub doesn't have any instrument lighting either so I needed to get down before it went totally black.

    On the plus side I was able to capture this rather 'peachy' Kodak Moment (TM) sunset about 12 minutes out from the target.

    slow and low, not to bad after flying the C-119 in Argentina. So, Don't cry for us Argentina. hehe, No tall tales here! Sometime flying the Piper Cub I thought I could get out and walk faster, but alas, I couldn't stand the bloody fall. Ok, back to the flight it was a nice one and the weather was just grand for a change. Flew over a lot of desert, but it was interest landscape and it was fun trying to find any coyotes to buzz but seen nothing a lot of scrub brush. Shucks, I missed Tako's three point landing. Darn luckily that I didn't do one.

    Hello there!

    A very nice flight in the desert of California. No tall tales here this time, well except the talk about Blythe and the heat. I can remember how in the heck hot it was when I passed thru there back in the late 50s and 60s. Today flight will be from Blythe to 5CL7 some kind of a pond or something. See you all later.
