600 hours in a Citabria; 400 hours in a Maule. I fly a taildragger because that is all I have ever known and because of our ranching. I don’t gather cattle with the plane but prefer to keep the plane at home. I live far enough away it is more convenient to fly to town (and a lot more fun). For many years we had several ranches and that is how we got back and forth. I co-piloted with my father for many years, but never PIC in his Bonanza. I started when I was 7; I was flying the plane while my father slept. Then in 1994 I got my private so I could continue flying for my fathers ranch.

I have a nice Maule, N40330 for sale. My web site is and have a super (difficult) grass strip (with sprinkler system, windsock and 1960′). Fly in and eat at our wonderful restaurant. I have cabins and private fishing also. Live music..we love life.

    HI Sally, I heard from John today by accident and got me thinking of you, says you are still at Lincoln and also near AZ. googled you and some neat pics and great plane, know you are loving that. Looks like you have really expanded on your eating place! Wow. Hope the daughter is good and that little doll of a granddaughter, still can picture her on the horse. Take care of yourself. Hope you have found you a good guy, do as old age can be real lonesome. Get in a NM Aggie Club., like Cruces or Albuquerque and fly to meetings. Wish you well my little Aggie friend, I retired from Ft. Stockton to Kerrville. back in ’08. Had me a big bunch of diff chickens, lover the range eggs and a few Barbado sheep to mow – they are neat and no shearing. Had to give all away few years ago to stay in Rio Grande Valley with sick and dying brother. Then next year went to family reunion in Ireland. Now that covid is winding down, still getting my shots, and my health is returning i want to get some more chickens and I like those Royal Palm turkeys like you have.

    hugs. and Gig Um! Mike
