Olof,
I think I have to respect your country's attempt to protect copyrighted material, but in this particular case, I contacted Blue Man Group's legal department and received permission to use the sound tracks used with the credit as worded. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Norm,
As sometimes things happen, our border destination was Eckhart, a grass strip on the US side of the border. The beautiful green valley covered with growing Hopps sort of mystified us and it wasn't until the wheels almost touched that we realized we weren't Landing on grass. Then at the restaurant at Eckhart, it got funny as we ran into a US Border Patrol agent, chatted with him for a while, then went and told our flight leader that the agent "needed" to talk to him. We all got a laugh at his reaction. No harm - No foul.

I got a smile out of it. And it made me realize how close a trip to the factory flyin might be. I have to get another endorsement on my Pilot Permit, before I can cross the border but it sure gives me something to shoot for.
Great Videos. Thanks

Default Gippsland Coast, Vic, OZ

We are just back from a great 4 days over the coast. our trip there was made so much better by the great company and guidance of Jim and his wife in their Highlander. After a nice evening in Mallacoota, we woke to a perfect day - lucked out for this part of the world and time of the year - perfect for low coastal flying. We flew for 2 hours down the coast at about 500ft to Yarram - Jim's home base and gateway to Wilson's Promontory - the most Sth part of mainland Australia. The weather was perfect for the prom so after a bight to eat we headed off. This area is Jim's backyard and he proved to be a great tour guide! We had the best time that day and Gayle and I are still on high! Spectacular weather, magnificent landscape and great company - perfect. It was our first beach landing too and learnt heaps from Jim's experience. For those of you OZ flyers, thoroughly recommend Yarram - and Jim usually doesnt take TOO much coaxing to go flying to the prom if the weather is good. I am sure he will at least point you in the right direction.

thanks again Jim - a great trip!

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

ross
