Steel Soldiers now has an offical calendar available, read more about it at: Steel Soldiers 2021 calendar
Here!OK, Steel Soldiers...
SPEAK UP if you are one of the (unofficial) west Texas Detachment members !
If you are based in the west Texas area, sign up here.
If you are generally located in the "isolated" regions of west Texas - west of the I-35 Corridor, south of the Panhandle, east of the New Mexico border, and North of the Rio Grande - then you've probably noticed that other members are as few and far between as the towns we live in.
(If you look at the Old Steel Soldiers Site and glance at the Member Map, you'll see the area.... there are almost NO DOTS !) http://old.steelsoldiers.com/index.php?name=GoogleMap (Y'all in southeastern New Mexico are "qualified", too!)
This thread is where you can speak up and identify yourselves for the rest of us. Let's establish a "composite unit" of us isolated and scattered SS Members.

I found it in Trade-a-Plane. It had four seats and in my price range. I bought it before learning how to operate a tail dragger.Whoa...I missed that Stinson on the first pass:
What's the story behind that, like how did you decide on THAT airframe?
I bet she's a gas!!I found it in Trade-a-Plane. It had four seats and in my price range. I bought it before learning how to operate a tail dragger.

Took a couple of weeks training. Imagine riding a tricycle backwards at 70 mph. When it is in the air, its just about like any other high wing airplane of equal size.
I need to qualify that "fun" comment, per the remark once of my former flight instructor:I bet she's a gas!!
But pretty hard to beat the thrill of flight. It's fun!
