Gene En Route

Alpine Helicopters has two machines: the old Bell 212 seats 12 and the newer, quieter Bell 207 seats 6. We rode in the 212 both ways, and it's a bit cramped. Felt like the helicopters you see in Vietnam movies. I sat next to a window facing towards the tail, and Gene was to my left across the "aisle" facing forward. Brian, who ended up in our cat group, is next to Gene.
