This might be a bit off topic, but it's kinda nice to just sit back and shoot the poo with a bunch of friends!

I enjoy the poo-shooting too.

Traverse City, Michigan (where I live) is on a bay that juts south off from Lake Michigan. There has been a Coast Guard station here my entire life. They operate a small squad of helicopters, which perform the usual search & rescue operations, but also map ice floes and assist with other marine law enforcement activities. Its always a thrill when one of these birds flies overhead.

Nice helo Bob!  All we have here are Sea Kings and JetRangers mostly, although I almost did wet myself once when an Apache gunship flew over my car at less than 100 feet...

It was up here for icing trials, something that is common around here.  My wife and I were enjoying a nice ride on the backroads behind the base when she looks out the window and says "That's a funny looking helicopter."  I try to see what she's looking at, and there's  the gunship right overhead, so close I could almost count the rivets!  If it's that impressive when it's flying by, imagine how impressed you have to be when facing that bugger head on... not that you'd be impressed for long...

Icing trials!

Sheesh, I read that as "Icing trails" the first time. I couldn't figure out why the hell they would be using an Apache Gunship to groom snowmobile trails.... :P  :D

I don't even want to think about how much money that stunt cost in gas alone!

I saw a clip from his show that was linked to over at British Blades. For this episode, they were launching these cars and such off a cliff. This Jeremy guy was stationed down below, shooting various weapons at the cars as they flew by. I remember seeing him blasting away with a shotgun, a machine gun, and some type of rocket propelled grenade. The cars were totally perforated.

It looked like great fun.   :)
