Soarin Over Northern California


Saturday morning was our first annual Helicopter Easter Egg Drop.  It was awesome with over 500 people there and everything going fairly smooth as well.  You can see all the Easter Bunny photos we took at our website here.  Great way to drive some traffic to the site.  There were some learnings as well and I can’t wait to do it even better next year.

Someone had to go up in the helicopter to drop those 2000 eggs out, so I took one for the team.  First time in a helicopter and it was a great view of the Santa Cruz coast!  Thought I’d take you all along on the ride with me.  Check out the video blog below:

    Thanks for sharing. I have to admit, by the third try to start the helicopter, I was worried that when it did start you might get up in the sky and the engine would die!!!! I would love to know what you were thinking!!! Hope your Mom didn’t see this. You all did an awesome job!!!
    Love ya,

    Sweet! I also want you to explain your tweet from 1a Sunday. Something about getting stuck on the roof of the church, and waking up your wife. When I read that on Easter morning I cracked up!

    I was freaking out just watching the video. After the second time he had to start it up, I would have been out of there… asking for another helicopter. SCARY. The footage was awesome, thanks for sharing the beautiful view.
