Looking that way.....if we don't take the helicopter to the lake we will be there early (AM) if we do it will be noon or better before we get there.

It's our buddies and he lands on our farm and scares the heck out of the cows...too funny....you ought to see the lake from up there.....we start at the dam and go down the lake near 101 where he has property...our place is at henderson and our boat is docked on the back side of henderson near the house-boats.

Speaking of heli's and such, I'm a pilot and own my plane and to date have yet to use it to go diving. I've kind of decided that for the most part I don't want to do a shallow dive, nor do I want to skip diving the day I come home and I'm not sure I'm willing to assume the risk of a hit in order to fly.

Since you mentioned the heli and diving, how do you work it? I know some pilots who breathe O2 and hope they offgas enough to not take a hit, again I'm not willing to risk it myself but I am curious as to how you deal with it? I'm guessing you just fly low like heli's do in contrast to an airplane which is usually higher.

We follow the highline wire route (most of the time ) we are usually just above the tree line and the sight seeing is great to and from the lake! It only takes us about 45 minutes but that includes the taking off and landing. We don't get to take the heli that often but when he offers we are ready to go!

I would too, I like Heli's. The feel is completely unlike that of a plane, and you see much more.
