Very impressive watching Ted drop his 601 onto dirt runway and pretending he was a high wing bush plane. He actually put must of us to shame, and on departure also. We were embarrassed, until he scraped the underside of his wing on a creosote bush…..never happens with us…...

Bob, I gotta tell you, at the expense of Ted's head swelling, all of us were really, really impressed. He dropped that 601 in like it was a true bush plane, and when he took off on the dirt runway which wasn't packed at that time, in about 500 ft, 3,100 elevation, he said, "why cut it close?"
