The "best" way to camp!

Fellow Rotorheads -

 

It's been awhile since I have posted...been putting a bunch of time on my 500 now that I have it back.

 

Thought I would jump back onboard with a great story and some awesome pics of a camping trip I took with our 10 year old and his friend about 50 miles SE of Blythe! You guessed it - our "camper" was the 500. A bit of a challenge to get everything in the bird, but we managed!

Now that is the way to go, and what cool memories for the boys! They will never......ever........forget that trip!

That looks like a lot of fun. I went helicopter camping a few summers ago in Alaska. Unfortunately it was unplanned with 8 px at the toe of a glacier when the weather moved in extremely fast. It was an adventure we will all remember too! Fortunately I had a tarp and a pot and we were able to use fuel for the improvised stove. Your camping trip looks way more pleasant.

Did we ever see detailed pictures of the final product... without all the camping gear? I may have missed them but, I would love to see them.

 

Congratulations on all your accomplishments too, you are living my dream life.... one day, one day, hope it's before my boys get much older.

What happened to the old tarp-over-the-tailboom trick? I see the boom is a bit high in the 500, then again with a big enough tarp you could have the luxury of a heated tent....

 

 

Hotel Robinson (feral pig shoot, somewhere in very far North Queensland, Australia)

No tent needed, but the darn mosquito net had a few holes.

I bet Whistlerpilot wished he had a mosquito net on his camping trip, them Alaskan mosquitoes will either drain you quick or just haul you off for later! :o
