    With the help of some family friends I was able to take pictures from a new perspective yesterday. Here's what I came up with:
    My house (graduation party for a sibling was going on)
    Town pool
    View looking East on "downtown"
    Back of the old court house

    "Downtown" and "The Square"
    Different view of "The Square" It's all very old buildings, one which houses our movie theater. All the streets are brick. Parts of the square were in the Ground Hogs Day movie.

    Awesome pics man! I love helicopters. I actually flew in the Jet Ranger "Gotham City" PD copter they used for Dark Knight. My buddie works for the company that owns it. I'm now buddies with his boss too. I love just going over there sometimes to hang out. Aviation amazes me.

    Great pics. That must have been a blast! Not a lot of elbow room in the cockpit huh?

    Thanks! Helicopters are the coolest, far far better then small airplanes.

    It's a pretty cool ride. Nothing quite like it that I can compare it too. It's a little tight in there but not bad at all. When the doors are on it can get pretty tight.

    very nice pics. Looks like a very nice town. Lots of cool old buildings and everything looks pretty well kept. And yes, helicopters are very cool.

    The town is Woodstock,Il. The population is 20200 or so our sign says. Some of you might recognize parts of it from the movie Ground Hogs Day.

    Awesome pics. I'm scared to death of heights, so I'm not too sure I could do that.

    How can you all say you like helicopters? They don't need snow plowers.
