    I Had One But Didn't See Anything

    In 1993 I rode in the Cycle Across Maryland, a week long bicycle excursion. Each night we set up camp at a place that supplied us with food, slept in tents (most of us, anyhow) and in the morning our tents and other gear was loaded onto a big truck to carry that stuff to the next...

    I Like Them Better Than Air Plane's.

      Except for the loss of flying high over the clouds I love flying on them even better then in the plane's. Do it as soon as you get the chance!

    Why Not?

    I've driven fast cars, motor bikes, go-carts, travelled in fixed wing aircraft, boats and ships, but never a helicopter. Mind you, a high performance stunt plane would be a bigger thrill.

    When My St Helens blew in 1980 there was a place

    that gave helicopter tours. I wanted so bad to go but just couldn't get the money together. It was only $25. I still think about it at times.

    Flying High

    I think that this would be fabulous.  I've been in many planes but not a helicopter.  I'll have to do saving. 22/11/07        $5 is going in a tin for this experience.

    Why Not?

    It was only a couple years ago that I had my first plane ride.  That was an experience of its own!  So, why not ride a helicopter?  I think it would be more fun.  Maybe someday...

    I'm Flying!... Or Not. :-)

    I was in a helicopter once. My dad bought me a helicopter ride for my 16th birthday. It was amazing! It really did feel almost like flying; the helicopter felt so light. It was scary at first, because it felt like if there were a gust of wind, it'd push us into the...
