Off topic, but...Daryl, those look like 10" Gar Aero wheel adapters on your cub. What tires you running?

Yes, they are.  29x11x10 @ 10-12psi.  Tailwheel is a Gar-Aero bush wheel as well.

Ugh, guess I don't qualify. Need to stop lurking and post more often. Such a wonderful opportunity for those that get in.

Hope some low-timer steps up -- a free mountain flying lesson in a SuperCub, it doesn't get much better than that. Very generous offer, Daryl.

A few years back, WSDOT Aviation sponsored a mountain flying seminar at Wenatchee.  It was a great intro to mountain flying.  (Please note I said intro.) I got a great 90 minute flying lesson from Alan Hunter with canyon turns, canyon flying techniques, and some tips on what not to do.  Sadly, I think liability concerns by the risk management office ended the WSDOT involvement and the program.

That, and WSDOT Aviation's stated purpose of allowing "private" businesses to do flight training and pilot education. 

WSDOT aviation EOC still collaborates with CAP on a good mountain flying course that focuses on the SAR aspect of mountain flying.

Thanks to all the respondents -even the 4000-hour guy who tried to slide in. 

I have 5 folks that have agreed to take me up on the offer.  These will be scheduled in late June through July.
