Default Backcountry Flying and Mountain Biking w/video

This past weekend I was able to combine some RV flying, two backcountry airstrips, and mountain biking. What an awesome combination! I've posted the full report here on my blog including a video of the Me-Own backcountry airstrip.





Hope you enjoy!

Well... we cheated a bit.

The RV-4 driver has a folding Montague that just fits in the back seat/luggage area.

There is no way my standard mountain bike is going into my RV-3 so I put it in another fellows C-180.

The lesson is: Always good to have a friend with a truck.
