What a fun video to watch! I fly original J3 Cubs, so I am not unfamiliar with a short field landing. But this is really amazing! Extremely short landings, takeoffs, etc. on water (no floats, just 35" tires!), sand/gravel bars, ridges, and mountaintops! Skilled piloting, great photography. Inspiring to think about the precision that Greg is flying with. Even though it's "Kids, don't try this at home", there was a lot for me to take away, consider, and try - in much more hospitable terrain, of course!

Volume 5 is unique in that it is an adventure that we are all invited to come along on. It gives us a look at that day dream trip that we all intend on making one of these days. Airplane camping in the middle of beautiful scenery in the backcountry is what all of us dream about doing. In volume 5 we are not really seeing Greg do anything new, or are we? Maybe some of us are not realizing the fact that High Country isn't just the title, but the true nature of the new material we are seeing. The true skill that we are witnessing in Volume 5 is adapting his techniques and judgment to a new environment where performance is everything. High altitude, as we all know, greatly effects engine and aircraft performance, translating into quite a different situation during take off and landing. The challenge of finding the limitations of Bushwacker under new conditions is the adventure. Greg's real gift is sharing his thoughts that lead up to his decision making process, whether those decisions were good or bad. His honesty about a poor decision, I think, shared more about the complexities of high altitude off airport operations than just a narrative of a landing area. The other new exposure is in the filming. Lots of amazing angles and interesting perspectives that we haven't seen in the series. I first watched it on an older TV and enjoyed the different camera angles, but it wasn't until I re-watched it on a high def TV that I could really appreciate the quality of the cameras that were used. The scenery was spectacular. It will make you want to head for the Owyhee.
