    The 500' rule....,what if one approaches and lands an area much further away than 500', but than slowly taxis closer to " man made structures etc." think I know the answer. Asking for a friend.

    Evel's jump site is (you can still see remnants of the ramp, and it will make you pucker up just looking at it) is within a mile or two of the bridge. Totally legal to leap off it, as long as you...

    I'm told by a friend that the base jumpers falling (they probably call it launching) off the Perrine Bridge in nearby Twin Falls, have taken the fun out of flying under it. Just a half mile or so...

    Luckily, I think most people won't automatically reach for their phone to video us, and than go to the bother of following up with a complaint to the FAA. Someone had it in for Trent and his buddy it...

    Mine is both, on the chart and registered, all 400' of it. It even has a courtesy car, and security, if he isn't chasing the cat. I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when the stats on it came...

    While setting trusses on a house in a nearby rural area the other day, I affirmed that the guy I was craning for also owned the adjacent big field. A piece of cake to land it, and it was agreed at...

    Yeah, too many neighbors, too close, too chopped up. He should have bought a larger chunk of land, sad to say. I've got 40 acres, wish I had 160. Edit: I thought that was Trent's place....but same...

    I never lock my hangar, no telling who could access my plane and take it for spin, so to speak, without me knowing about it. The dog ate my logbook.

    Afton WY has (so it seems, I've never used it) a nicely maintained grass strip to the west of the main runway, but it is, as you say, too far to taxi after landing there, if one is headed to the...

    Ugly, but perfectly safe, at least I hope so as I did the same thing on my RANS. I may have a bit more faith in 1/8" and 3/32" wire rope than some, being an old hang glider and UL pilot and dealer, I...

    Best river story I have, is when I was following the Yellowstone River north bound, and where it joined the Missouri, darn if there wasn't a sand bar right there, at the junction, with my name on it.

    I had to guffaw when you said "staying within my budget" as that doesn't seem to enter into my airplane mods decisions. Nice plane, and driveway LZ.

    Saw a YouTube video on it, nothing I figured out myself! You cut it right behind the barbs, unravel the strands, and weave it back together. Takes a minute or so and seems to be full strength. I've...
