What a great RR. I've gotta ask, being a fellow DRZ pilot, what gearing do you run in those open spaces?

I am glad you enjoyed reading about our adventure. It was a blast and I look forward to future trips to explore the area.

Chuck said they were both running 15/44 gearing on the DRZs.

The thing that I kept thinking about was how there were pieces of this plane and its occupants spread out all over the place right here on this mountainside in Oregon and how there is a similar crash site somewhere in Afghanistan where a MH-47 and the 10 soldiers’ remains were scattered in a similar fashion. It was pretty heavy. I wonder if someday I will be able to visit the crash site in Afghanistan?

I had brought a flag up with me and I put it on one of the engines.


Here is their Arlington memorial site

I was based at Mountain Home AFB from 2001-2005, (then went to Nellis in Vegas). Anyways, I used to drive all the roads around the Owyhee Mountains in southern Idaho, eastern Oregon, and northern Nevada with my Jeep TJ. Its easily one of the most desolate, but beautiful places in the entire USA.

Excellent RR! I've been reading through all your RR in your sig. Its definitely on my list of places that I MUST go back to.

Lastly, thank you for the pics of the crash site as well as your recall of the Chinook that went down. I became an Aerial Gunner midway through my time in the AF. I distinctly remember that crash in Afghanistan.

Ok...

Back to reading your other RRs.
