Default A Good Day!

Just got back from flying with Groundrushesup and Capt Easy. We had a great time. Here's a few pics:

LOL! Watch out for the cows!

Angler-Hi: "Oh s**t man, that cow was totally staring me down like it wanted to charge or something."

P.S. - Mike: Now, if I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times - you need to take that big honking spinner off your Gee Bee - it just doesn't look right.

eheehahahaa

whoa...sorry I take all that back. Knowing GRU now, I figure he must have anticipated using it as a defensive measure against the livestock. Right?

Nice! You know I bet you if we tried we couldn't get that sweet a camera angle again lol

I must say that some of my faith in the FlyCamOne2 is restored - I think the trick is definitely to film in full strong sunlight.

Awesome flying had a big part in it of course

I am good company, ain't I? LOL Thanks for the kind words, and the feeling is mutual. Hopefully you can squeeze in a trip on Wednesday!

What an awesome video Mike!!
I really wish I had been able to go up with you and see CPT Easy again and meet Josh. It really looks like I missed out on some great fellowship and flying. Hopefully next time I will be able to join in.

That row of GeeBees sure looks fantastic lined up and ready for takeoff.

Too bad we couldn't hook up to fly today, Mike. I really wanted to, but those winds were just too brutal.
