January 19, 2016
Over the weekend I flew up to Hampton 7B3 to meet up with some fellow BCP’rs to check out a 1960 model Cessna 180 that Brandt was looking to buy. Fingers crossed, but we think today is the day that Brandt will be flying it back to TX!

Backcountry Pilot IMR or “Informal Micro Rally”
November 12, 2015
In the effort to get more BCP folks to get out camping and meeting, I created the IMR or Informal Micro Rally.
What the hell does that mean? Simple: Just get out and camp… Doesn’t have to be anywhere crazy, short, or gnarly. Anyone is welcome, anywhere is game… Pick a meeting spot and run whatcha brung.
Pick a spot, let other folks know where you are heading by posting it, and roll the dice… If at least another person shows up, you got yourself an IMR.
Some pics of last weekends event in Lincoln ME. It was myself, Texashooligan, and another Skywagon. Was chilly, but super fun!
