Blackhawk Helicopter Ride




Wow! What a ride! Last week I experienced a ride that I have never experienced before, a helicopter ride in a army Blackhawk.
Mike called me last Thursday and asked me if I wanted to go on a Blackhawk helicopter ride. I wasn't sure about this but he encouraged me and encouraged me and I decided to go for it. It was a great experience but I do have to say a little scary. It was so beautiful though, we went over Brianhead Ski Resort and also Cedar Breaks. The ride lasted about thirty minutes. I did get a little queasy when the helicopter dipped and came back up, it felt like the biggest roller coaster that I have ever experienced in my life and that is saying quite a lot.
I am so thankful that Mike encouraged me and is given all of these fun opportunities for both of us. It is so nice to experience a twist in life every now and then.

Wow, HOLY COW! I wish I lived there because I would have died to go with you guys. I am sooooo jealous I know it is one of my not so good attributes. I love you guys and I love your blog to see the things you are doing down there. I almost feel like I was there with you. Although on the run I am glad I wasn't.

This blew me away. What a chance in a life time! I have never even been in a helicopter. Not only were you in a helicopter but a Blackhawk. Only in my dreams.

Good for you. Most of us can only dream of such a flight.

That would've been awesome, but I would have thown chunks all over the inside of that chopper. I'm such a whimp, I get sick ridding elevators.
