This is what she was made for right?

Today I decided to go out on solo mode, and do a flight I have done many times, a nice little look in the mountains east of Seattle, starting off in Ranger creek.

Wheels up from Ranger creek!

And coming back down on a small grass strip

Back up, but holy cow, those winds. Pushing me and the X-Cub to the limit

On my way back down, wack sideways on another grass strip

Lifting back out of it over a lake

These views low key need to chill out

One final landing

I think that’s enough for today, you?


Very cool :D

I’m sure those 2 knot crosswinds were tough 😂


Try 12, they were, crosswinds aren’t my specialty, but I’m out there to learn, if everything went well I’m better now than when I started the flight…

I know, I’ve never flown the X-Cub but I know that it’s highly susceptible to crosswinds so any breeze at all will blow it off course

Yea, all ads to the fun though, the more difficult, the better… 😉

Thanks for checking out Seattle. These pretty much are where I go camping!

Lovely shots of the XCubby mate. I always love good little mountainous flight.

I just realized it’s your birthday, so happy birthday! Have a great day! 🥳🎉

Just realized how small and skinny that runway you landed on is. The numbers don’t fit!

I literally thought this was some kind of story, but still, very cool!
