Took the day off of work and got out with my friend John Stachler, and his brother in law Andy.. We did run across another Dee&#39;er, Keith Anthony.. aka cuzinolaf!! Hopefully I didn&#39;t butcher his name or call sign.<font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font> We hit Keweenaw county and had some fun for a few hours, what a perfect day..

Caught the clean up in the act, big banks. On the drive up to unload the sled.

Here are a few more, it is official that not only does John Stachler have a hill named after him in Keweenaw County but now has his pilots license.. He did well on the take-offs but the landings need some work.. The woods were a blast and we climbed around a bunch too.

I wonder why Joe bent the running board?? Maybe it had something to do with being 10 feet in the air all the time? Anyway, Joe had to switch up the sleds and he&#39;s working on his pilots license also..

We had a blast, Chris can you teach me how to land? http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif

Nope, I failed my pilots course.. Why do you think I&#39;m always the one taking the pic&#39;s? Anyway, I usually hurt myself on jumps.. The elbow is still shot from 3 weeks ago..

Hope you had a safe trip back.. We did find a new route on Sat too..
