(Report by Jim)
As goes with motorcycles, so goes with drones. It’s not if you will crash it, it’s WHEN. I was all set up for an epic low altitude shore run of North and South beaches when I lost communication with the drone and it continued it’s errant course into the hillside. Luckily, I still had GPS communication and could locate it 20ft up the hillside hanging on a branch with just a single propeller broken. I guess it could have been worse, it didn’t get dunked, but I did have to wade through almost waist deep Lake Michigan water to get to it because of the high water levels!
But wet and freezing or not, I will not pass up a photo of dinner-plate-sized Petosky stones

Took a trip over to East Leland for a Christmas tree for the deck at Kolarik’s Tree Farm.
