Re: O.T. PICS
Me in whistler with my two buddies and the pilot and camera man. The pilot took us on the coolest ride of a lifetime. He landed us on high mt tops that I thought a helicopter wouldnt fit, much less the whole group with gear unloaded. I think thats a spacial dimensia thing from way up in the clouds dropping down on a LZ. Then when we were calling it a day, i yelled to him "Hey Joe, show us what this bird HAS GOT!" and i tell you it was the best dam ride i ever went on. He slammed the throttle and pulled up on the stick and we flew up and arched backwards as if we were going to end up upside down, but at the last second when we were vertical he used the tail rudder and switched us in one fluid motion from out backsides to facing the ground. Then that heli had a little nose dive and we were off skimming literally right off the tree tops and hopping from one canyon to the next dropping down in elevation with each one. Banking off Mt sides at 130+mph was incredible and we were all screaming and yellin him on with cheers. Never forget that guy. The camera man (on the right) did everything that we did (not that it was "extreme skiing") but with a camera to his eye the whole time. He was a comedian and scout and a tailgunner all in one. Heck of a guy and talented too. I had a hard time keeping up sometimes with this guy.
