Ah, there are “heliports” everywhere in Chelan County! I love the flight up the Entiat to Stehekin. I’m going to try to put together a day trip to the Stehekin Valley Ranch for next season.

Thanks for the kind words about my post. I’m trying hard to remember and include as many details as possible about my flights. A lot of folks like to read about me flying and I want to give them something worth reading. As for that civic-minded Dad, there are a lot of true stories like his these days. This country has become a very weird place.

I don’t know and doubt I’ll ever find out. But those apples cost $4.54 per pound to ship. Ouch!

Good writing Maria. I enjoy the flying detail when I can follow through on the cyclic and imagine the crosswind, dial up the military frequency, etc. Authentic stuff. But you go further than that, into the world of commitment to others and joint enterprises, such as delivering Santa to waiting school kids. When I was a kid, Santa arrived on a trailer towed behind a car that looked very much like Mr.Rickett's, (our local butcher's) Morris Oxford. The thought of Santa actually descending from the Northern skies would have been too much fun! (An aside. When I read your post there was a copied tweet, in your right hand margin, from a contributor called 'Progressive Dad'. He was on a bus and a Latina was being abused by bullies. He lead a chant which was taken up by the other passengers and it drove the bigots from the bus. If that is a verified true story he needs a civic award. Inspiring stuff.)

Enjoyed the post. One thing that I find curious is why it was so important to get a relatively small delivery of apples to a packing plant so quickly? There wan't even someone waiting for the delivery when you got there. What made all that added cost and effort worthwhile?

I loved our flight up the Entiat Valley - up and over Lake Chelan & Stehekin, up and over into Methow Valley, then following the Columbia back to the Wenatchee 'heliport'. Almost forget the stop for brunch in Chelan.

I won't be in the big tent. My booth is across the street at Tyson Wells. Open air art/tool/etc. show. I'll be selling aerial photos of campsites. If your group wants a photo to remember their camp with, I can set you up! I'm really looking forward to it; it's my first time having a booth at Q.

Yes, we will arrive around the 18th and rendezvous with the Skinnie-Winnie (View/ Navion) crew. I look forward to meeting you over in the big tent & learn about what you are promoting!
