We had been airborne for several hours and needed a bit of a break. It can be challenging to find a spot to land and stretch the legs, especially this time of year. This road (I know not where it came from or where it was going ) was the best thing I saw. One thing I have never liked about roads are the power lines, so I looked this over very well before landing. Another thing that can pose a challenge are street signs and mailboxes. I almost hit a mailbox once and it has made me very cautious.
As soon as we landed I popped the cowling and put last-nights left-over pizza from Evangelos on-top of the cylinders. It’s like a microwave, it works great. We chowed lunch and then launched again. It was cold this morning… like -15 F, miserable. This spot was perfect and I thought it was a nice pic.
Here is something else I saw today that I thought was interesting.
I could not figure out what it was until…..
The Hercules and the Black Hawk flew right over us. I thought this was pretty sweet. The Black Hawk was refueling, and it looked really weird from a distance. I exited the immediate territory after I took this image because I was not in the mood for wing-tip vortices off a C-130 Hercules.
