Playing with my new GoPro camera. Landing and taking off this small lake near Chapleau, ON is challenging because you have to thread the needle through the narrows in the middle of the lake. Glassy water and a hot day just make it more interesting.

Great crew over there in Nestor Falls! I rolled in with a C180 to pick up some pax. It was 4 degree in MB when I departed with my sweater on and ended up being 26C by the time I was leaving Nestor. The guys felt pretty bad for me sweating my ass off in a hoodie, so they kindly gave me a company t-shirt. :oops: That'll teach me....either a) to bring a t-shirt, or b) how to get free gear

I'm not a float rated pilot. I'm curious to know who has tried this technique of taking off in a continuous circle. It could save someone's butt trying to get out of a tight lake with obstacles.
