Today I flew with PeeWee, Injun and Stoney in Dash 2. We flew Gen Boomer around to check out some grunt ops. Very simple but time consuming flight. Weather was cloudy, windy and cool, with a few sprinkles here and there. Visibility was 3-4 miles. We had fun, no problems. Ate oreos and had some cherry beverage powder in the LZ while we were waiting. I had a real smooth landing coming in, because the wind blew away our burble as we touched down. The Marines in the LZ tossed out a smoke grenade to show us wind direction. I like landing where the smoke swirls through the rotor wash. Gee, the thrills I get.

Chow was good, yaki soba and shrimp fried rice. Back to tent to yak and play paper boy.
