Whether sifting through sand, or scrambling over a rocky shore, it's about finding treasures in every day. 

Alaskan Airplane Tiedowns

It's Alaska, so having a Cub in your yard is not that unusual. The airplane sort of Cub, of course.

Here's one on landing, and just in case you were wondering, this is FUN!

This little bird loves to fly, and can just about lift off in a stiff breeze.

This 1946 Piper J3 Cub had to come out of the water for an annual inspection recently, and Nick needed a tiedown system to secure the aircraft. He lives on an island, so he had to use locally available weights with attachment points for ropes. Sometimes you just have to improvise.

What do you think? Did Nick find the greatest tiedowns?

Wishing you a creative day!
