I guess this is travel :D I wish I could express how much fun this was!

These 1st 2 are snap shots from a video camera, it is me on the right

Were you ever scared riding a helicopter? Is this a top secret mission?

I was scared the first time the crew chief motioned for me to move from my seat and to sit on (I guess for lack of better words) the "Tail Gate" I had a heavy duty harnest and strap connected to the helo that was short enough to keep me from going out of the back :lol: No, not Top Secret :D All though you could think this is Iraq or Afghanistan, this is actually Fort Bliss Texas. We have a training exercise starting in a week or so and the "brass" was not available to checkout the training areas so us with the Public Affairs went up to take pictures to put in their PowerPoint slides. There were two photographers and a videographer up. It was a blast :mrgreen:

Great photos. Although the fun element wasn't really displayed but the shot are great. But there's one thing I do not like in the photos, your foot. Lol. I think it could have been positioned in an appropriate way. Because in the photos, they are somewhat distracting.
