Default Hat Sighting, Fremont Peak WY

Ok I'll give this a try. In July 2010, my son Landon, one of his buds, and I climbed Fremont Peak. From our house, or anywhere around Pinedale, Fremont is the most prominent of the peaks you can see. The first photo is Landon and I on the 12 mile hike into Island Lake, at the base of the peak, where we set up base camp. Fremont is in the background between us. The second photo is at the summit, another 3500 vertical feet above our base camp. I wasn't sure if an old, fat guy still had it in him. But I made it Good times

Default Alien Sighting

Rich Rudolph and I spotted an alien wearing a VAF cap at Area 51 located at North Texas Regional (KGYI). Didn't see what kind of RV he arrived in!

Default Summer hat sightings

A shot of myself in the reflection of a T-6 spinner at the Arlington airshow. That is a VAF hat i promise. Only turned around to take a picture.

At Leadville taking our tourist shots.

At Oshkosh waiting for the start of the show. Found enough shade to relax by the flight line

Got to shake hands with Paul Poberezney at aeroshell square. What a great guy!!!

Default Passo dello Stelvio

che bello! At 2758 meters, its the second-highest paved pass in the Alps. The climb has about 50 switchbacks. This picture was apparently taken in late summer, because no snow. The ski resort on top is open in July. I climbed Stelvio on bicycle from Bolzano, about 2400 meters of climbing. The descent into Bormio is equally spectacular.

Default Hat Sighting Darlington "To Tough To Tame" truck races

You can't get any closer than this to the race action...1st pit position at the Darlington "To Tough To Tame" truck race on March 12, 2011. A group of my airpark neighbors got pit passes from yet another neighbor who provides all the wreckers for Darlington races.
