This was written yesterday, after Joey’s FIRST experience in a helicopter. It took place at 13,500‘ in the Andes Mountains of Chile

Riff Raff** not welcome. Today was the coolest day known to man. Must I mention that today Mom took the Team on a helicopter ride. Thinking that I may hold a world record for highest*** letter board use. Today I learned to give new things a chance.

** today we asked Joey what Riff Raff meant, he spelled: People who really don’t know what they love.

**** the helicopter was flying at 13,500′ at the time this was written. Of course Joey and others have utilized RPM in airplanes at greater altitudes, but this was utilizing RPM in a helicopter in the Andes.
