Hello,

I'm Harry, retired Dutchman and living in Saint Martin D'Oney in the SW of France (between Bordeaux and the Spanish border). With the help of this forum I bought a Super Cub.
Together with a friend we have started the restoration.
I'm intending to use the Cub on our land, cutting heather and grass and transport.

In my working life I have been often in US, once for a one year spell in a RV throughout your great country. It is a great place.

Anyway I'm pleased I found this forum;
Take care and à bientôt

Harry
