On day five of my trek, I meet Rob Wilson – a grower who lives so far away and tucked in the hills that we need to travel via a small airplane to his farm. I am thrilled by the adventure! (see photos below) . As we travel over rolling lush hills of green, I spot acres of sheep, cattle, and deer (which are raised for venison meat). The views up high are magnificent! I am immediately hooked and want to fly the plane myself. Amazingly, Rob hands over the controls and WOW – I am flying. I wanted to do a roll but he kindly discouraged against the maneuver! When it was time to bring the plane down, our airport was a strip of grass by his house! And who said it’s no good living near an airport . . .
