Default Pictures from Rhode Island to Arizona trip

I finally got a presentation put together with some pictures and videos from my journey across the country in a tiny 2-seat Cessna. It'* a Powerpoint slideshow, and I set up a download that includes Powerpoint viewer in case you want to watch it but don't have Powerpoint. It'* about 12-15 minutes long, and I think some of you will really enjoy the pics and videos we took.

Once you've downloaded the folder, right click it and "Extract All" files. Then just open the extracted folder and double click the file named "PLAY ME!".

Here are a few teasers:

No spare duct tape "just in case"? You were on a suicide mission man!

You are a brave man with nerves of steel. I am so afraid of heights and planes.

Though I love planes, esp fighter jets, I'm terrified of heights too. I do occasionaly confront my fear. The flight over the Grand Canyon was an adventure in itself. I think the pilot was more scared of me having a heart attact than I was of falling. LOL

Funny - I'm not real fond of high places...dang near wet my pants on top of the stratusphere in Las Vegas (I'm not proud of that, BTW), yet I was perfectly fine flying a Hughes 300C with the doors off at about 9-10,000 ft, no worries. Go figure.

Cool pictures, Ben.

Has anyone watched the Powerpoint yet? Not trying to be pushy... just want to see if anyone is downloading it
