    AH,That's not at the River Ranch resort. That is river ranch acres I think they call it now. I still have property there haven't been there in probably 25 yrs. Used to be great hunting till the state took all the land along the Kissimmee river from us and then the ATVs and Four wheelers over whelmed us. Use to be 150,000 acres now I think it's down to under 50,000. Its just west of resort and North of bombing range. Those are all hunting,ATV and four wheelers camps. I think that's about the 3rd time I can think of its burned up.

    Told the tower on final tell heavy to watch for my wake turbulence😂 Cleared for take off immediate right turn to 090.

    Exciting Morning coming back from breakfast saw a truck on fire next to a house. Could see a guy trying to put it out with a garden hose. So I landed to give him a hand. With a few inches of water in his yard it was like landing on a slip-in-slide. Then got invited to go shoot clays down the road so I flew over there and shot some clays.

    Spent Friday Scouting the Smokey's for the up coming SMA Flyin. I found a few of cool spots while flying around. 3 uphill spots 300 was the shortest, longest was 700' First time using VIRB 360 I'll upload 4K this ones kinda blurry. The last one didnt even look doable when I flew over it,once I made a approach didn't look so bad. Hard to see in video but you have to drop down in the valley to get to the base of runway first 400' pretty steep then flattens out on the top. It was a fun one for sure. These aren't on the list for the SMA event but made my trip a lot more fun.

    The VIRB 360 camera has some pretty cool features the Editing soft where is a pain. Think this one will work better.
