Oregon coast trip (video)

This is not so much a trip report as it is a video compilation of the sights I filmed while I was there.

Take off: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nz1UcHrWc9s

In flight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQwVHoNsAIE

Landing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wcHymbXoCw

Destination: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8NflYchgYk

While visiting the Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville Oregon, I got to see the original H-4 Hercules (Spruce Goose) built by Howard Huges

Please rate the videos and comment.

Thanks.

Thanks.
This is nice and all, but this is a driving trip. I don't want to be a stickler, but this is flyer talk. I was hoping for a trip report about flying...

I flew there, actually.

As frequent fliers, does anyone really care about my flight?

At any rate, here's the flight portion of the trip

Honestly after a couple hundred flights, flying becomes routine. I honestly thought I would spare everyone that part.

FlyerTalk is not a forum JUST about flying, but about LIFE. Flying for many of us is a part of life, and takes up a great deal of space here. I'm glad to have a trip report that pays heed to something other than flying, something that flying ALLOWS us to do.

Thanks for this.
