After seeing photos of my new paint job, fellow Baron owner Curtis Hassell suggested I fly up and meet him in Oregon.  His son had just bought a new camera so perhaps we could do some air to air shots of my plane flying around Mt Shasta?  Twist my arm!  Of course that was an offer I couldn't refuse.  It was very smoky and hazy that day since there were 4 forrest fires raging nearby.  We chatted with some of the air attack guys getting ready to launch at Weed airport.  Due to the smoke we couldn't really see Mt Shasta, but these still came out pretty awesome!

Wine country by Champ

Today I flew around wine country in the Champ.  We're in one of the worst droughts in decades, and it shows when you fly over the hills and they're all so golden brown from being bone dry.  The only good part of that is I don't need to worry about the grass runways around here being too soft.  Why use a paved runway when there is perfectly good grass right next to it?
