Float Plane Arrives

Sat, May 27, 2017

Late last night, we heard the float plane come in.  Wish he’d been here a day earlier as I might have gone up with him for some sight seeing.

This morning, I took TiVo for a walk and saw this contraption.  I was like ‘what the heck’.

_8013329

On closer inspection, someone welded heavy duty skids to the front of an old pickup.  And then whacked off the back half.

So the pilot lands on the lake, pulls up to the boat launch and on the skids.  Then the driver puts the truck in reverse and bingo, out they come.  Pretty clever, eh?

But it sure looks funny when you first see it 🙂
