Thanks Bob! I've been awfully slow working on adding photo's these days as it's too warm out to miss the outdoors! Going in for surgery tomorrow so I'll be out of touch for a week or so. I was zooming around the skies yesterday and it was just great as usual! Turned the autopilot off and did some low level scenic tours around the province. I forgot to take my camera though! Take care and I'll talk to you on the rebound. Tim

Hey Bob!! Back in the land of the living..kind of. Today was the first in over a week that I have enough energy to fire up the computer and see what I've been missing. Thanks for your support, it's always nice to hear kind words. How's the spring going? Hope the storms have died off. Tim

Hey Tim,

I know. Operations suck out our energy. I told my doctor that his cure (chemo) dang near killed me.

You'll spool up in no time now.

Our weather flip flops each day. I went out comfortable in short sleeves this AM. Had to put on a heavy sweat shirt around 4PM.

A couple nights back I heard a weird sound outside. It was dime size hail banging on the deck. We are not in heavy T-storm area. Getting a lot of super cells around here lately though.

I get into these I need to know things. My latest: About how fast in RPM do you have to spin your compressor before you can lite the fire in your C-90?

I was just reading how efficient the turbo prop is in the 250 to 350 mph range. Your King Air is the perfect bird for your mission. Covers a lot of ground fast. And can land on little tiny short runways too. No wonder you so love your King Air.

I got a buyer interested in my biz. If said buyer buys said business for said price - we are coming north. I want to go toe-to-toe with a p-bear. The dead stuffed type p-bear you photoed.

RichDurant posted a few p-bear pics.

Tim, you must check out the story behind Rich's pics. - http://www.flickr.com/photos/richdurant/sets/72157627302172226/

P-bears really think they are at the top of the food chain. Humans is what's for dinner.

Time to stop playing and go to bed.

Hi there Bob! Well I'm back although it'll be a while before things get back to normal. Hopefully next week and I'll get my act together again. I read the story and it is certainly not the first story I've heard about how aggressive the bears can be. I only saw a few in all my travels and it was always in the comfort of a nice safe vehicle. I can't imagine camping in that part of hudson bay although there are bears everywhere. If they are hungry then not much will stop them. I don't know why they weren't traveling with a thirty odd six as the main gun, a shotgun would only make it really mad... As to the other question, fuel is introduced at about 10-12% which would translate to about 5,000 rpm if memory serves correct. It is my favourite airplane as we get to do low level sight seeing without a huge penalty for fuel. This summer may be the last trip as the federal government is in motion to sell off the fleet and retire us to flying desks but time will tell. take care. Tim

Hi there Andre!!! Nice to hear from you again. How is your fall going so far? Good weather I hope! We have snow falling already but not staying yet and I haven't even started my yardwork! Have a great day and take care. Tim
