I'm with Jomac. I had a great time at JC. Having watched, with increasing unease, all the crap flying around on the web in the weeks before I went, I was pleasantly surprised at how laid back and normal everything felt once I actually got to JC. I welcomed the disconnect--it was very reassuring to know that I can still fly my ass off in some really cool places, ogle a bunch of neat airplanes I can't afford, have too many drinks hanging out with old friends and making new ones, casually hang out around legends like Pops Dory, and create unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime, regardless of whether people are arguing with each other on the boards and even if the feds show up to watch the party.
In other words, I was really relieved to discover that the entire JC thing still is, and will continue to be for me, one of the most incredible experiences I've ever had as a pilot.
God bless this great country where we still get to do things like this, and God bless the Idaho backcountry!!!!!
