As I sit here in my new office, with a view to a parking lot that looks like it has the makings of a decent flying site, observing the bright blue sky and strong gusts playing with the shrubberies, I find I have to share my strong urge to just fly something!!!!

Flitting around the basement with my hummingbird is just not cutting it anymore, I need the roar of a wet engine combined with the strong smell of spent Widlcat fuel on my clothing.

Some of you may have noticed I've been mostly missing from RCCanada of late (perhaps some think it better that way ) but my new situation denies me even that small enjoyment. I had a chance to fly this Sunday past but my old adversary (wind gusts >60km) prevented any outlet.

Sorry, ... just had to share before I got fired for firing up a Moki in my office.

Will the season ever come?!!!

Same here. Been throwing paper airplanes out the window just to see something fly. Boss just left and it seems my flying season is going to be interupted by work . I hate it when this happens. Gotta feed the addiction somehow.

Yeah me too! I was lucky to get three good days this winter for some test flying and am looking forward to the start of a new season of fun.

Jim, I sure miss you, I mean you know how I like to argue and it just aint the same without you And I havent heard one good getting married joke from you either! Geesh, you must be busy....

Anyway, the season is coming - thats for sure. Just trying to get prepared for it before it actually gets here is my problem!

I finally got 2 flights in on Saturday after October. But the field is all just pure mud, but was worth the effort.

There's been a few flights this past week at our feild. It was quite windy yesterday so we just took a few gliders out and did some slope soaring. Great way to spend a sunday afternoon.

Britbrat's got it right, except for the golf (a lovely walk, wasted) I retired 6mo ago, and I have been too busy picking up the long-delayed projects in the house and garden to do any flying yet The winds are looking good for the slope (2,000' above the valley floor and lots of landing area , so I WILL be up there soon. My buddy has his GWS Beaver ready for the back yard, so that will happen soon, and my scratch Semiscale Sea Otter is nearing completion and my P51 is... oh, dear, time to abandon the garden work...

I really do have sympathy for the Easterners and their weather problems: had it not been for the aforementioned chores, I would have been flying ~ Mar06 or so!
