  1. Hi Jimmy, It would be great to have your family members there as all are welcome, let your friend Dan know about this also as the more are merrier. one of last years Bemidji attendees will post a copy of the fly-in at the airport there. As our event continues year to year we keep growing and the area businesses keep providing better and broader services to the attendees. I look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. Hope to see some friends north of the 49th there this year. 67november Steve

  7. Way ta go cuz, he's gaphahing on that one. A thanks to all of those for your messages, they will all be passed along to the family, please keep them coming. We will miss you cap, a dram in your honour :up:
  8. This pic was taken on my visit to Dave's place in early May 2007, His stories were meserizing. My condolences to Val his wife and his children.
  9. and again? it appears this ENG forum is as busy as the one south of the 49th that I monitor doodily doo doodily do...................................................
  10. Ya hit the nail on the head with this one H56, being a Moderator can be like trying to herd cats when the brown stuff is flying off the fan wether it be members or spammers! And yes it does require ALOT of time on-line Damocles
  11. now to get back on track, I watched an episode of axmen of loggers in Montana and the rookie pilot in a 205/212 was shown trying to do his thing and needless to say he had a rather difficult time getting things to leave the target area and land in the target area. now how is it done north of the 49th with rookie pilots? do they have a cojo for a time or are they turned loose to learn for them selves and hopefully not destory the machine in the process I'm refering to rookies heli-loggers not rookie pilots
  12. Isn't that what you call a class D load?
  13. very sad news indeed, my thoughts and preyers to all involved.
