I've just been informed by the better half that I have a family brunch to attend tomorrow.  So I probably won't be able to bet there before 3:00 or do,

I can't hang around that long.

I still plan on going up to TEMAC tommorow about noon (depending on wind conditions); I will post conformation in the morning if anyone wants to join me.

Remember to bring boots. It's still fairly muddy.

It was MUDDY! Very muddy; much more than my previous times out.

And the field was hole-ier and bumpier than last time.

I guess the previous cold weather has affected the ground.

I did a bit of flying, but the muddy conditions actually made it less fun (a crash far out in the soft muddy field resulted in no damage to a fiberglass fuselage!).

It will probably be the beginning of May until things dry down enough.

I was there with my EasyStar, EasyBug and EasyCessna...well, it's Cessna 182.

With about 10km/h wind, I tried my first #D-hover job with my EasyBug...20 feet up.  Needless to say, it flip-back and don't have enough distance to recover.  Nosed-in but lucky no damage.  It barely able to keep up with the head wind.

The Cessna is a lot more fun close to sunset.  The wind had clam down a lot.  A 10 minutes flight ended with w mis-judge landing in the soft-mud field.  No damage except the heavy mud-bath ;)

The day is ended with blowing bubble with my son and having some sandwitches at the field.
