    Grandfather of SuperCub.Org Publishes New South Dakota Aerial Photography Book!

    Dave Tunge, (cubdrvr) was the first supporting member of SuperCub.Org (that makes him the grandfather). He has just published a new book - which he was kind enough to send me a copy of - of his aerial photography in South Dakota. It is an incredible book with great writing about South Dakota, and about Dave. Here's an article about it!

    I have a signed copy on my coffee table, the book is incredible and Dave is very humble about his talents.
    This is a must have item, you can order it direct from www.dakotaaerials.com.
    Great Christmas gift!!

    The book is available here. Also check out Dave's website, some amazing photos. http://www.dakotaaerials.com

    Dave is one of those guys that you really like to share your campfire with. When you are leading 8 plus Super Cubs and you want to arrive at that get together with just enough gas to compete in the short field landing contest but you didn't take the strong winds into account and you land in a field just short of the intended destination Dave is the guy that lands next to you and knows exactly what happened and has a 5 gallon can of gas in the back of his Cub. Glad to see Dave's talents and passion portrayed in a book.

    Remember that! It was just a bit startling to briefly look down at your chart then back up and the cub you are following just plumb disappeared. Glad Dave was far enough back and alert enough to see what happened. Some things you just don't forget. That was a pretty fun time. Now back to regular programming. Gotta go to his web site.

    Great pictures on your web page Dave. It Looks like old 87D still follows a coyote just fine, you should fly her up and we can get her some practice.

    Thanks for the post sj......and the nice comments from ya'all......but the main purpose of this post is that 1) I never did get paid for my 5 gal of gas from Pierce, and 2) the way he, Murph, and the crew at the Lodge conned me into the "mild" jalapenos I never should have stopped at all. Now he's being nice ???

    Hope my hints are taken.

    Of course if we could ever get the guy prayed away from home he might get the chance to take some pictures of gods country although I guess I understand now that I see he has been holding all the pretty girls hostage and can’t leave his guard post for fear of a mass escape...
    Or he could prove me wrong and fly on up,,,,I know 87D knows the way!
    dave
    maybe ole eagle eye Sodak could show him the way and Whittier and Powell could fly high cover

    I call him the "Sin Merchant" between the liquor store and the cigar shop.

    When Dave and the SuperCub contingent were at my place, Dave supplied the smokes and the "aiming fluid" ...generous man that he is.
    It was a wildly popular gesture, too.
    When I finally got home from the field, the door was open on my house and heavy smoke was rolling out.
    I thought maybe there was something burning on the stove, but it was just the first round of lit cigars, scotch, and premium Canadian whiskey.
    Dave knows how to party. Fun stuff.

    Dave brokered the deal on my Super Cub. My logbooks still smell like the cigar shop.
