haha Perhaps, Unfortunately the dam Stewart River is so silty the cleaning job would only last a day or two. On the plus side the silt seems to "tighten up" the floats.

The biggest one soo far: working on getting all my Canadian paperwork done (flying licenses & migration). In february I'm coming over. Beware ! :mrgreen:
In the mean time, I'm teaching in Europe. One of my advanced students wanted to fly in the Alps, that's where the picture is from.

That looks pretty fun. Switzerland is one of Neil Peart's favorite countries.

The funniest part is that they actually landed (military) jets there... :rolleyes: They still do for some airshow-like events.

Oh, wow. Most of Canada (non-ocean coast) can
get unbelievably cold in February, compared to Europe!

The clothes you have to wear are crazy. With any wind,
exposed skin can be damaged in seconds. The dewpoint
is insanely low - it's static city, inside.

There's a reason no one invades Canada :wink: Ever notice
that wars are always fought over warm, sunny places?

bmc knows cold!

Yeah, I've heard. I hope they have a good clothing shop at the airport. It will be a Manitoba invasion, one of the coldest provinces I've read. And yet, I'm looking forward to it! But I'll start another thread about that in a while.

Manitoba in February!! :shock:

You're going to need a warm parka, and wear
layers of clothes that you immediately strip off
as soon as you get into someplace warm to
avoid sweating. It's really bad to be wet when
you go out into the cold again. I really, really
hate having wet feet.

You need long underwear. You need warm boots
with liners that you pull out to dry when you get
inside. You need thick mitts and gloves. You need
to cover your head (most of your heat loss) whenever
you are outside, either with your parka hood or at
least a toque. I might suggest a fur hat that covers
your ears.

And heavy scarfs. And dark sunglasses for when the
sun comes out and blinds you with the reflection off
the snow. And a flashlight because it's going to be
dark 18 hours of the day. Also in your parka carry
some lock de-icer, for both the house and the car.
I also carry a leatherman.

I won't even begin to describe what you need to
make a car or truck work when it's that cold. You
won't believe it.

Manitoba in February!! I guess I'm getting old. This
is where you will find me, during the cold, dark depths
of the Canadian winter:

What did you folks do to them, they barley ever had a drop in them last year. They were tight floats.
