A few things that I caught after looking over the video in some detail. At one point the ASI shows he flying at 85 mph indicated. I had a CH2CWS and they will fly that fast but it takes RPM and power to do that plus it burns a lot of fuel. But looking at a still shot from the video it appears there is still fuel in the tank. Note also (and he admits it in his comments) that he is 500' (he admits to being at 400' at one point) flying over that congested area. Scouting out a landing spot all times is also a great idea. Altitude is your friend.Those rows are propped up with wooden stakes and hog-wire. No bueno!
Well, on the farm I spent part of my youth on, "hog wire" is what we used for repairing wire fences and many other tasks. A little heavier than bailing wire, and a little easier on your hands. Now, it looks like what the internet calls hog wire is something else.I grew up on a farm until I was 15 years old and we had hogs and never heard of hog- wire. What is hog -wire?
OK , I understand now. Thanks. I always hated building bobwire fences. I used to pray for rain so we would get a break from some of the work. Grandfather just said, " put out rain coats on, we're building fence today". I would rather put up hay.Well, on the farm I spent part of my youth on, "hog wire" is what we used for repairing wire fences and many other tasks.

How was it said during my 20 year career in the military? Oh yeah, that's right...I've had my share of lapses in judgement. Yes, I've made mistakes, a few stupid decisions, & some not very wise choices. Many times I have learned from the errors of others (you should, cause you won't live long enough to make them all yourself).
Then there are times that I can't help but wonder what people are thinking when they do certain things:
Lotta things wrong here.
Every pilot flies gliders. It's just that some of them have the towplane bolted to the nose instead of on the end of a 200' rope.I only fly gliders , (hang , and sailplanes)...
