Changing it up a bit this morning, here’s a video I recorded at the Scenic Overlook in 2018. I don’t recall what the reason was for the chopper to be there but it’s an amazing display of how a helicopter works. I’ve flown in one many years ago in Michigan and it scared the crap out of me! It was windy, the chopper was bobbing up and down like a bobber on the water with a fish on the hook, scary! Partly sunny and 81 degrees today, another beautiful Mojave Desert day!

Helicopters are definitely not for everyone! When I worked up in northern Manitoba for a road construction company ages ago, I was sent up in a glass bottomed helicopter to do a welfare check on guys working cutting bush. Good thing the pilot knew what I was supposed to be looking at because my eyes were closed for the duration.
(smiles) You sound like me in that short five minute ride in the chopper in northern Michigan years ago. No thank you! 😂
Mine was not short. 😳
Like a giant dragonfly, only noisier.
A great analogy, Anneli! When I was married to number three, she worked at a hospital in administration. I was able to get several videos of the Life Flight choppers coming and going from the hospital. I no longer have those videos or photos as after the divorce, I literally deleted six years of photos and video out of my life. A bit harsh I guess, but it was the right decision.
Life goes on.
You bet, and a better life it’s been since 2016! Some folks aren’t meant for marriage.
