For $80, you get transported to a 5/5 cache!

Definitely cool and hopefully you find the 5/5 and don't have to list a dnf after you pay for the ride!

The listing only mentions a 5 terrain. Either way it would be very cool!

Is there anything similar cache closer to Maine besides Sting Ray City helicopter cache on Grand Cayman I have on my TODO list?

This would be a great way to get the Gulf Hagas cache that I've missed twice now!

80 bux is a fairly decent deal to ride in a copter too. Another one for my bucket list,ride in a helicopter.

Think I've been three times.

Rode in the Maine Forest Service helicopter after taking the Forest Firefighting Course.

Rode in a scenic helicopter flight and took photos of my Uncle's house.

Rode from Girdwood, AK to a glacier and glacial lake . . . and then rafted down the glacial stream . . . that was the best ride of them all.

My father-in-law and I nearly did one of the tour flights near Orlando several years ago but it was real windy and we decided against it. Come to find out, helicopters do okay in wind unless it's extremely high. Should have gone ahead and done it. We lost him a few years ago to cancer. Another of those dreaded "shoulda done" moment.

Took a helicopter ride in Alaska and landed on a glacier. We also white water rafted, but not on the glacial runoff....magnificent scenery both days.
