Haha cool. One of my parents friends is a heli pilot. Every once in a while he lands in the field next to eggberts to go have breakfast... I've ridden with him a few times and even flown once. One of the helicopters he flies is for grand river dam association. Its lake patrol... But anyway, that heli doesn't have doors so it's like the jeep of the sky!

They've found you now. Be careful and look around every corner before you turn it.
I would go ahead and assume they also have your house bug'd by now. Make sure you inspect your food and drink well before consuming it.

Haven't you ever pulled off the road to check your headlights or your lug nuts? That's all he was doing, just pulled over to check his lug nuts.

Yep. They stopped using the all black ones because Alex Jones exposed them.

I've always kinda wanted to own a heli. Flown in a few. Medevac and a bell like they used in mash. Three guys in s bell with no doors. Not a good idea. Never piloted one just a small two seat prop.

I work for the State Police and in the summers we fly all day looking for marijuana. It is not uncommon to land in some small town when it is time for lunch, bathroom breaks etc. You get some strange looks when you land near a McDonald's walk in grab some food and then leave.
It is also funny how many people call and complain that we are wasting tax money by taking a helicopter to eat lunch. I guess we are supposed to go all day without a break, or land somewhere else and then hop in a couple of cars and drive to eat, somehow that will save gas.

Reminds me of when I was in the USMC, was flying across country in CH-46's doing Dog-N-Pony shows and landed at one of the pilot’s family’s farm house, in the mid west. His mom came out like it was business as usual with cookies and lemon-aid. LMAO. Good times!

If it took all day, you went to the wrong college.

Morehead State University [Less Tail, Morehead!] managed to grow a bunch of plants, very nicely landscaped around the forty foot sign at the entrance to the campus. Only after two years, when a State cop rolled onto campus for a conference did it get noticed. Yes, that was the 70s. No, I wasn't involved.
