Dave talked me into it... I went on a one-hour ride in a helicopter with no doors. But it was GREAT! I was really nervous until we finally lifted off, and then it seemed like a dream... the kind where you have the power to fly. I was in the front seat, squished in between the pilot and Dave (who was literally hanging out the window for most of the flight). I was in charge of the video camera (we MUST edit down my 20 minutes of footage), and Dave took a bunch of really lovely photos. The views were breathtaking and I'm SO glad we had this once in a lifetime experience.
This was the group that left after our flight.. but this was THE helicopter.
We're happy because we made it back alive :)
