Saab 340

I'd rather screw my way across the country (region) than blow my way across. ;)

Sorry, had to say that for the jet guys.

I'm a renter so I'll fly whatever I can afford that meets my mission. This could be a T-tailed Lance II, a Turbo Arrow III or a Warrior II. These days I usually tool around in the Warrior as it is the cheapest of the lot for me to rent, $99.00/hr wet.

I trained in a Cessna 172M and N but now I don't really care for the Cessna's any more; I'm a low wing guy these days.

Skyhook - thanks for noticing - no skis or chains but

1. I did fly the Cub into San Francisco International once and I think it took them a week to recover. Was initially put in a holding pattern at an intersection while descending and told to expect 35 minutes delay to approach - just started around the four minute oval the third time and I was cleared to land - guess I convinced them I wasn't totally a hick from the sticks. Held the requested 120 knots on final to accomodate a twin behind me (the Cub would do that going downhill) - cut the power at the threshold, and exited at the first taxiway (Cub's so "dirty" aeordynamically it was no trick). Ground control coulddn't figure out where I was. Did more landings in hay fields, though and two turn spins (once required for commercial license test - got mine some four decades ago) were as much fun as one can have with clothes on.

2. No chains on Beemer but have ridden in snowstorms - not on purpose though - I was "featured" in local Beemer riders monthly paper for that (they thought it was the first time that ever happened to me). My dirt bike riding paid off that day. I can now say I haven't ridden my Beeemer since I was 81 (110 miles today) as I'll be 82 tomorrow. Hard to believe I'm 50 years older than my Beemer. I'd say my longevity comes from living a clean life but, there are some here who know me and I'd rather retain credibility - :upeyes:
