Top 5…ish Travel Tips

I was going through my usual morning routine today which includes checking my curated news feed of articles relating to everything from travel to drones, to the upcoming Pixel 4 cell phone when one article in particular caught my eye. The headline was something like “10 flight attendants give you 10 travel tips” or somethingContinue reading “Top 5…ish Travel Tips”

Phantoms in Alaska

When I’m not flying helicopters, or travelling the world, or kicking back at home with my family I’m running my own drone consulting company, Global Mining Unmanned. The work with drones takes me all over the world, and this past week was all about the drone business and a pair of Phantom 4 RTK’s inContinue reading “Phantoms in Alaska”

Sipping in Chile (Pics + Video)

If there is one thing I learned in Chile, it is that not only am I a wine person, I’m a CHILEAN wine person! —Nick Henderson After what felt like a non-stop, fast paced, blitz through Peru (because it was one) Abbi and I hopped onto a Latam flight and continued further South in SouthContinue reading “Sipping in Chile (Pics + Video)”

Peru…Finally! (Videos + Pictures)

Well here we are again – months between posts because I’m probably the worst blogger on the internet. My South America trip to Peru and onward to Chile happened last year, in September and October, and I’m only just now writing about it. Now, in my own defense, I did produce a series of videosContinue reading “Peru…Finally! (Videos + Pictures)”

Delta Terminal E Sky Club (Pics)

When I have a long layover somewhere, especially when I’m going international, I have no problem paying a day fee to access a club. Free food and drink alone cover the cost – it’s the amenities beyond those that make it worthwhile. Such as quite, comfortable seats, more outlets than people, dedicated work spaces, andContinue reading “Delta Terminal E Sky Club (Pics)”

Drones Seized in Guyana

When I kickstarted this blog back to life a few months ago I promised regular content updates, a podcast and vlog. Those last two are coming – I promise. As part of that first one I am going to also be writing about my drone work with the company I own, Aerial Resources Group, LLC.Continue reading “Drones Seized in Guyana”

Riding the Hiawatha Trail

One of the best things about living in the Pacific Northwest is the outdoor activities, all year long. We have boating, hiking, biking, camping, swimming, climbing, skiing, everything. If there’s a sport and a season, we have it. The Hiawatha Trail is one of those exciting activities you just have to do if you’re upContinue reading “Riding the Hiawatha Trail”

Tarpon Rodeo – Grand Isle, LA (PICS)

As I was wrapping up a few extra days of workover here in Louisiana I found out that I was going to be down here during the world famous Tarpon Rodeo fishing derby that takes place every year. Though I was not able to go and actually participate (and party) because I was on dutyContinue reading “Tarpon Rodeo – Grand Isle, LA (PICS)”

Start. Stop. Start. Stop….Start?

So here we are again, a year between posts and I’m writing that I’ll do better, I’ll post regularly, I’ll stay more involved in the blog process. We’ve been here before. This past year has certainly been an interesting one, and there are a few reasons why “the roaming pilot” hasn’t been roaming much atContinue reading “Start. Stop. Start. Stop….Start?”

Palouse Falls, WA (Pics + Video)

Being back in the United States for a bit has been fun, especially being able to spend time at home exploring my own backyard – the Pacific Northwest. A couple weeks ago I set out on an ambitious hike up Caribou Ridge to the summit of Mt. Coeur d’Alene. The rumor was that there wasContinue reading “Palouse Falls, WA (Pics + Video)”
