    Got to take a helicopter ride Saturday on my lunch break. My brother inlaw's brother brought his chopper down, and was giving rides, so I had to get in on it. Sheila, Coltan, and I went. It was our first time in a chopper, and I was suprised at how smooth the ride was. It was very windy, and I was expecting it to be rough. It was tons of fun, but too short. I coula flown around for hours. Here's a video of the landing, and I'll post some photos too.

    Too cool, I always wanted to give that a try myself. Maybe some day.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I am very fortunate I was a flight engineer in the Army for 20 Plus years and have over 1800 hours of flight time in helicopters and it is a blast

    Sorry my biker image was ruined for ya Johnnie lmao. I like a little steel between me, and the pavement. I do like dirt bikes though. I like choppers (custom motorcycles) too though. Like to look more than anything. Does that make me any less hardcore?:confused2::big_smile:

    Oh, it's worth mentioning that I have a good friend that owns a custom motorcycle shop. He repairs bikes, and has built a couple of real sweet bikes. So, I could be guilty by association. R&R Cycles if you ever get up this way.

    Hmmmm. Not good. Either you got shot down 5 times....really bad odds. OR, you jumped out of a perfectly good helicopter 5 times....still not good odds. :confused2::smile2:
