Default The $131 Dollar Hamburger

Had a fantastic flight to Grand Coulee Dam airport (3W7) today and stumbled upon possibly the biggest hamburger I've ever heard of. "The Big Chief" (Vlad may need to make another West Coast trip )

I took the airport car into town to find something to eat and just happened to pick the Tee Pee Drive-In. No I didn't order "The Big Chief" but I was talking to the staff and they said no one has ever finished the meal. Sheesh I wonder why?

Anyway here are several shots of the spectacular scenery along the way and the menu.

That's great! Nice pics... makes you want to put floats on the RV. And that burger... OMG... that's 6 gallons of 100LL. Gotta love it though.

Thanks!

I agree. It may take six extra gallons to fly home if you eat the whole thing.

"Eat the whole thing"???

That would feed a family of four!

It was a great weekend weather wise, wasn't it Jeff! If you come back, there's a pretty good camping site as well and you can also take the Grand Coulee dam tour. My daughter and I did that last spring. Well stocked honor-system fridge in the airport building (the trailer) too.

Ya Steve it was just about perfect yesterday in Eastern Wa. The West side started out started out little foggy then burned off but stayed pretty hazy.

I did walk down to that camping area to check it out. I'd really like to camp there one of these days.

Wow that's a big one Jeff. I would bring a large box for leftovers. Location noted but it looks like I am stuck east of Mississippi till 2016

Smile Great shot!

Beautiful picture, Vlad. How did you get them to let you fly there? Sure looks like you are above 1,500' and under 7,000'. Higher up with a telephoto lens, maybe? Or a VAF member in NY Approach control?
Someday before I croak I still want to fly up the Hudson VFR "tunnel", haven't gotten to do it yet.
