    Beach Landing, first off airport

    Well made my firs off airport landing at Copalis Beach off of the Washington State coast. It was like landing on the Salt flats as far as difficulty goes, but what the heck, got to share it with my son, first off airport landing. Met a group of people that made a cart for there friend who could not walk. They were a great bunch of caring folks. They put our plane on U-Tube thought I would share it with you.

    Uh oh! It is like the first sniff of cocaine, now you won't be able to stop.

    I kept track of my first 50 or 60 off airport landings. That was 15 years ago. I try to keep a ratio where the airport landings are less then the off airport ones.
