    What beautiful coastline, and to think that all those beaches are available to land on. Our beaches here in Oregon, and I think Washington, are designated as public highways with a 10 mph speed limit.

    That is a beautiful area. The beach landings must have been fun to do!

    How much farther to Tasmania? It seems like you must have been pretty close.

    Great evening flying on the farm, with the Rams grazing nearby. Stutterheim area- South Africa.

    Life is a bit more enjoyable since we've had rain

    Hey Jim, nobody said it was legal to land there!

    Your turn now Phil! I bet you have those bugs sorted and heading out the backcountry there before long!? And no, not that far across to Tassie - about an hour to Flinders Is and then a short hop to the Tassie mainland. Another adventure for another time!

    cheers

    It looks as if you landed downhill. Hopefully the Rams are friendly..

    Went to a friend's farm the other evening.
    Short airfield. One way in and one way out. 4000 ft and 30 degrees Celsius.

    When the flying group was most active, we tended to want to see things up close. That is, unless things seemed a little more tense. These three videos are from the group flight heyday, the first has two short segments of the former style - Flying the Humbolt river down stream from the Rye Patch Dam near Winnemucca, Nevada and flying the Snake River at it passes up through Hell's Canyon in Idaho with a landing at Doug Bar.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vs1Li1F29no

    One of the tributaries of the Snake River is the Owyhee River. It is strikingly beautiful in part of its course as it has carved a deep canyon reminiscent of the Grand Canyon, but in a much smaller scale and without the vibrant colors. The Owyhee crosses three states, Nevada, SE Oregon and Idaho

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xr1x0WDofAM

    This video was taken during a trip to Oshkosh in 2004. The first segment shows a weather condition we encountered while flying toward Kalispell, Montana - Note our altitude. The second segment is over the Missouri River in South Dakota. Both segments were adrenaline boosters for the respective pilots.

    Great footage. I especially like that Owyhee gorge. That would be fun.
