The WX was really good for the Annual Massey Aerodrome Christmas Open Hangar Day. I have been several times but it has not always been a good flying day and usually have taken the car. The temp was about 40F when I left and had to put the charger on the battery to get the engine to fire. With a 'hot' battery it did finally fire up with full choke. Will have to work on getting a real pig tail wired up to the battery charger instead of the exhaust stack and a screw in the '+' side of the two pin trailer connector that goes to the battery. Otherwise the whole cowling must come off to get to the battery. So we arrived late and I parked 3/4 of the way down the runway to avoid a 'back taxi' while people were still coming in. Massey is a great venue and I saw a number of people that I have met over the last 8 years of flying on the Beautiful Eastern Shore.
