Kenneth Mahorney visited Split Mountain Air 3 days ago in a Husky with 29 tires

Stopped in to camp for the night. Met the owners Eric and Lisa. Great people, generous and accommodating. They are doing everything they can to make a great hangout place. The car is great and A/C works . Bathroom facilities are also great. We had a fun time with them. Beautiful views from the property and an easy approach from both ends. Thanks guys!

Nathan Kurth visited Calamity Mesa 1 week ago in a Super stinson with 31 tires

Overall airstrip is landable but needs attention as erosion has overflown the drainage ditch on the east side and crept into runway area-see pic. Need to land and stay west side of strip.

Nathan Kurth visited Hubbard 1 week ago in a Super stinson with 31 tires

Runway overall in good condition. It is developing small undulations which may get worse with usage leading to a need for a potential drag. Concrete tiedown pad being encroached with tall weeds but usable.

Runway surface is mostly smooth, flat, hard dirt. Spring vegetation growth is keeping the dust down.
