Awesome! The guy 2 hangers down from my wife's has a show quality Taylorcraft - it's a thing of beauty. I'm going to have to bum a ride one of these days. A couple nights ago I broached the subject with my wife of buying an old taildragger and got a positive response, so I'm on the hunt now. I'm leaning towards a Champ or J3 because I like the roominess of tandem seating, but my wife and I are both skinny enough that a side-by-side like a Tcraft or Luscombe isn't out of the question. I've flown 2 different Chiefs and for some reason I can't put my finger on I just didn't care for them.

It's a beautiful spring day here so I planned to fly up to our club's grass strip to take the J3 for a spin but the melt from a heavy snow last weekend means the runway's too soggy. I ended up just bopping around a few paved places in my wife's C150. I'm hoping it'll dry out enough that I can land there tomorrow and get the Cub out.
