2. Contrast that against our last wussy in chief on his girls bicycle and fem helmet.

I don’t have the pic, but it sure illustrates the difference between men and non-men.

7. I'd luv to have an ultra lite to cruise over my property and the lands around me

I gotta get my views from Google



My property (28 acres) is mostly within the rectangle to the left of the divider line. The road (private easement) continues south to my only neighbor's property (vacant last 2 years), and private road comes from the East to the serviced road about 1-1/2 miles away.

Google's latest closeup from 2015 of the area where the buildings/lawn/clearings are



And a wider view . . . . a Google capture prior to my taking ownership in 2013 - no junk in the pic!


The driveway used to circle the house - I stopped that idea right off - it's all lawn now - I don't mind using reverse gear . . .

The "road' Google shows going thru my property is actually a grown over single lane logging trail from decades ago (still passable) that runs all the way thru to the other side of my property - it's mine

Boy - would I ever have fun up here with a toy like that ultra-lite!

ps: - I wouldn't shy away from having a go with that submersible either!

8. I don't know what the rules are concerning them in Canada, but here...

Unwheeled craft that land with foot power do not require a pilots license.

Wheeled craft do.

At least that is my understanding, which, may be a bit out dated. It has been some time since I dug around in that arena.

You look to have the land for a nice landing strip, whatever the laws are.

What fun that would be!

12. Have a look at this:

$8000 USD. It's completely ultralight compliant but at the same time is far more "airplane" like.
