I did have a carb temp sensor, that you helped me design, but it was not robust enough to take the vibration etc. wires were too small gauge.
No water, just finished annual and had drained all the fuel, changed filter, and refuled. No water in filter, and it is the lowest spot in the system before going through the fire wall.

Good trip report. I got a question tho... what was the dewpoint? At that temp it would be real easy to get the carb to freeze but shouldn't freeze at high power. Your fuel doesn't have water in it I hope.
I had carb icing once. The engine died on base when I pulled the carb heat. After that I built a carb temp gauge out of a digital inside outside temp gauge. Now I can see my carb temp and don't pull the heat unless I need to.
