Winter Birddogs

 

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT THINGS WERE TOUGH IN THE SOUTH

because the air temperature dropped below 40 degrees and you put the Dog in the hangar until spring and warmer days, our members in the north country were out churning up the snow on frozen lakes and more! They’ve been cranking up the engine heaters, filling up with thinner oil, and putting on who knows how many layers of gear on their bodies just to go outside and play.

It takes a dedicated, hearty soul to do all that and drag the Birddog out for some wintertime flying, but they usually get rewarded with 100 mile visibility, light winds, and find others who are doing the same. Here are some photos, with and without snow and ice, of some of our members doing just that. Thanks to Mike Weinfurter, Steve Noyes, Jeff Fox,
