This huge job lead was given to me by my Amish buddies that invited me to fly down to their hogroast. If I get this job...are they ever going to be given a nice compensation. I would have never come across this job. I drove up an measured for 3 three stairways in this megahome today. What a view from the front driveway. The first picture shows a lake but I need a 3D camera to get the depth of that lake. Anyway...I plotted the longitude and latitude and now have them ready to enter into my helicopter. If I get this job, I will fly up and go take exact measurements. I will have to do a steep approach into this home and land just on that small grassy area next to the driveway. It took me 2 hours to drive there today, and should take no more than 45 minutes to fly it. I would not fly in and out of here on continual basis, but a few times will be exciting using all the capabilities of my helicopter. I have to get the job first, so I must bid in some K1 for fuel.

I plan on setting down to the right of the rock pile....and my departure will be directly over the lake and trees. I will be relying on the machine till get over that bunch of trees......then its nothing but open fields all the way home. This place is nestled down a private lane going into this wooded area and has an electic gate guarding the compound.

I used google map and found the home. You can see the driveway towards the bottom of the home....then the lake just below that.
