Life is good!

Curious about steering with the castering nose gear on ice. Also the runup :)

I've flown the Grumman's on snow and ice without any real problems just wondering how your fared?

Steering with the castering nose gear is interesting after you loose rudder authority.

Regarding Runup - I mean what run up :?
