    Today was an absolutely beautiful day, and was only made better by being able to get out in the woods with two of my grandchildren.

    Big Man, that does look like a fun time. I am really excited about taking my son for hikes in the local state and national parks as spring sets in. He already loves our short walks in the field outside the house. He just lights up, day or night, when he gets to experience the world outside.

    Making memories, eh! big Man, way to go, I think of my Grandfather taking my brother and I on walks so it's nice to see you just doing that and with style to! My grandfather was a flat cap chap but your Fedora will stick in their minds I am sure.

    Here's some pics from last July's family vacay at Vallecito lake in Colorado. The fishing wasn't that great (monster in the 3rd pic notwithstanding), but it was a relaxing and fun trip regardless, and that's all that counts-[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    This was at the halfway point in the 10K Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston, SC today. I have my fedora in my hand, as the wind was blowing hard on top of the bridge.

    Good afternoon adventurers! I got out of doors for some walking, tree-hugging and bird watching this weekend, staying at my mother's place in west-central Germany. I took a leisurely hike through the woods and along a swampy river valley. Plenty of birds to be seen (including an unusual visitor, a Black-tailed Godwit, a type of snipe) as well as quite a few Roe deer and Hares.

    Swamp-trotting: My outfit is not purely along Horace Kephart's suggestions this time, he advises against corduroy trousers and anathematises long boots....

    I did a little hiking this past Friday on the Ledge Trail (appropriately named) on the side of Hawksbill Mountain in the Linville Gorge. The Gorge is about 10 miles as the crow flies from where I live in Western NC.

    Great photo of you pair and a nice shot of that old kite, I swear if it too had been painted green it would have looked as though you have just jumped out of it.

    Great to see you enjoying yourself after the summer you had.

    Thanks Mr. Godfrey!

    Sorry for poor pic, but here's one of the SE-5A that is just about finished! Thought you'd enjoy this one! Waiting on custom radiator for the finish. Then It's off to its new home in Virginia!

    That's a nice photo of your wife and grandson having a family day out. Great looking aircraft there too, you look as though you had just taken her up for a whirl and back down for lunch if your choice of clothing.

    Reminds me of an air show my grandfather took me to a long time ago, spent ages playing in the cockpit of an old Lancaster.
