A wise man indeed.

I've had a few crosswind landings in a Cessna 180 (and a Cessna 185) where I nearly forgot that little gem. Happily though, it all came back to me in the nick of time. Once, on my second go-around due to a 20+ crosswind component, I elected to simply land a 185 on a taxiway perpendicular to the runway at a little non-controlled airport I was flying into. Ground roll less than 100 feet.

Aircraft undamaged: Check.
