an unplanned overnight

Here are a few pictures (in no particular order) of a trip I got to go on in April.  I went along as co-pilot and we ran into some weather that required us to stay the night at the WWF base where our passengers were going.  We had to land short and wait a couple hours for the storm to pass.  Then we continued on to our destination, but decided to wait to head home until the next day since there were storms between us and home.

banana harvest

Our friends had bananas ready to be harvested and invited us over for the experience.  Each banana stalk only produces once, then dies - so we cut off the bananas, then cut down the stalk.

heavy!

Dez chopped the tree - I pushed it over

victory!
