Thank you to all of you who provided some witty captions for this photo. A lot of you grabbed the essence of riding in one of these Soviet era choppers with great effect.
But I'm going to award the top prize to elkslayer, who said: "Guys, maybe we should tell him we already landed a half an hour ago."
Now, trust me, you definitely feel the difference between being on the ground and in the air in one of these things, but that was pretty funny nonetheless.
elkslayer, hit me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address, and I will get you a copy of "The Orvis Guide to Fly Fishing for Carp."
