|volcano||Its a write off with the rain, I may walk her back there again but its a write off. I have a bigger more expensive one, but Im gonna install a device that yells out a loud beep like 10 minutes after takeoff. the flights last 5 minutes.|

Well yesterday we looked again, no luck. We came back to the car and cops were writing a ticket, the same cop who let me go for no leash. I was parked at the rc field and its for pilots only and they let me go since I was looking for the heli.
Apache got ticks! I found about 5 tonight since I stopped using the frontline after the so called tick season. The worst part- I pulled a tick off and it had live baby ticks spiling out! EEW!!! talk about halloween. Im gonna have to do frontline again since i dont want her to be a tick incubator.

|volcano||If she knew exactly what she is looking for it would be easy, I can throw her ball in the opposite direction shes running and she heads straight to it.|

Weve put in about 7 hours over the last 2 days. The problem is the field is infinite and I lost it beyond some trees and into the fields. Its like a needle in a haystack as the grass is as tall as me.
Apache runs and jumps trying to get a view over the grass, today she had me hopeful as she was on a track. It led to a tree and she was jumping on it so I was looking up for the heli. Then she went to a hole nearby - she was tracking an animal. Then she led me into the trees, she held her foot up like a pointer dog and I saw my heli!!! I ran up and as I got closer it was an old bicycle
Well be back again tomorrow- the wild fields are getting mowed, and our days are numbered.

|Wetdog||Good luck. I'm sure she'll be able to find it----it is just a matter of being able to communicate what you want her to find.|

Apache has a new job starting tomorrow
I was out enjoying the weather and flying my rc helicopter today. Well I flew way too far away and couldnt tell which way it was facing and I lost it. There were trees but I think it landed beyond the grove of trees in tall grass. Its about 4 feet long and over 1000 dollars so I really want it back.
Were training already with her searching and finding a spare airframe over and over. Well be back tomorrow and I have high hopes that well find the heli.] She already found one today but we knew the general area, mine is lost in a huge field and I dunno what part.
