Alan0899,

If I could find a job there I'd come on down! Can you recommend a place with about 25 acres in the country so I could have my own field in the backyard?

Snow's gone here in Ontario. Now we've just got to wait for the field to dry out.

Life's not bad down it the western part of the Bluegrass State of Kentucky. You might check out the Jackson Purchase area around Paducah Kentucky.Two huge man-made lakes nearby and three or four flying sites within a half of an hour drive from Paducah. St. Louis Mo. is only 2-1/2 hour drive as is Nashville TN and Memphis, TN.

Paducah has a very nice flying park there that belongs to the county and maintained and run by the Paducah Aero Modeleres flying club. Check it out at http://www.paducahaeromodelers.com/index.php

And always remember, "Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first and the lesson sometime later!"

Don't rub it in. Plenty of snow here. Last 3 weeks snow has barely stopped except in the last few days where it's been off and on for a day at a time...

Luckily they're forecasting above 0 temps for a while as of Tuesday or Wednesday next week.
