More pictures that inspire common sense (some may think it fear) but we are very brave pilots :roll:

Yep. That's why we're still alive and flying. "There's old pilots, and bold pilots, but you don't find many old bold pilots."
PS - I went out to Volcanic Peak this evening with Nancy. The road from the highway to the railroad tracks has been graded recently and is in excellent shape. The section past it is passable, but I put the truck into 4WD after the second or third puddle. Not as bad as the Corralitos Road to Mag Rim, but it'll be nice when it dries out. The landing zone is GREEN.

Looks scary enough to keep my feet on the ground!!!

There's a well known corollary to the scarcity of old bold pilots:

It's better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air ...
   ... than to be in the air wishing you were on the ground!!

Keep making the smart calls Robin. :clap:
