Did it happen to be 6-28-08? Here is a picture of us leaving port. Probably wasn't the smartest thing. Had to hide behind Big Summer until it passed.

Hey JR, We resemble that remark. We just usually don't join in the game at the end of the night. I only have one point against my license down there and it was only a couple inch scratch:D I have seen some carnage though WOW!!

Had a pilot friend at Fairport last August for a few days. He circled over and took a few pics as he left. I have several more that show the area better, but this one is the best of Dick's marina.

GREAT Shot Mike!

I can see my Truck and tent across the street in my usual spot! Nothin beats 3 hours of sleep each night on an air mattress, with four wheelers ripping by all night long and the sound of screamin drags playing in my head!

Man, this thread is killin me!! Come on Spring!!:)

Those are some cool pics Mike...thanks for sharing them. That place seems like the end of the earth, but i sure do love seeing that little green fairport sign for the first time every year!!

Maybe you should try to sell those to dick for some of his high dollar dock space:grin:
