Icy Fraser River

More ice. At 2,500' the temerature was -10 C, which is not that cold, considering it's close to -10 C overnight in town these days.

A piece of ice was lying on the pavement. Where did it come from? It dropped from the wing? I looked and looked underneath of that wing; I didn't see any source. The airplane flew normally, though the strong gusty easterly jocked me a lot.
It's very unusual to have a sunny day with east wind in Fraser Valley. The east wind is almost always associated with rainy weather this part of the world.

Oh! My Penticton

Temporary fix of the step retraction. The up cable slipped away from the crimping tab. This is supposed to gain a few knots on the return trip from Penticton (CYYF).
Just a few weeks ago, the step operation was repaired!
Still better than the incident three years ago. The engine quit over the cascades, a few days after the annual, when the mechanic didn't properly tightened the drain plug of the carbulator after overhaul. Penticton was the airport we did an emergency landing!!

Looks like YS11. Am I just imagining?

CFGUS for Annual Inspection

Airplane on stands. It looks the way when in the air.

Those two cables on left side by insulations have been troublesome to raise and lower the undercarriage.
My cranking left hand was hurting.
The springs on the floor are making rear passengers a little more comfortable? I doubt.

Hatzic Lake. Once upon a time, I landed a float plane here.

Rare Sunny Day

a0025444_11573859.jpg
Wintery Snowcap Lakes in the middle of Misty Icefield. At 8,500' the outside temperature was -15 degrees C. The old Beetle type heater on the aircraft was totally inadequate. I needed downhill ski wears and climbing boots.
