Beautiful Spring day here is Colorado so I decided to do a little mountain flying. Departed Meadowlake, touch and go at Springs East. Pueblo for breakfast with friends, touch and go Salida, stop and go Buena Vista, Break in Leadville, return to Meadowlake. Six airports in 3.3 hours. What an awesome day. Interesting takeoff in Leadville, had a gusty crosswind from the left so I tried to cheat it by getting on the right side of the runway. As I accelerate you can see me take a nice 17kt gust from the left. I had the rudder buried. Luckily it was a short gust and I was able to straighten it out. Yeah I know I need to work on the centerline. Heck, it's a tailwheel. Most of the time I can't even see it. Anyhow, hope you enjoy the video.
