Oh my! Pilot John Lumley [daughter Lizzy does the Eagle River Twisted History Tours] was terrific! The absolute perfect pilot for a ride like this. He was previously a commercial pilot for over 30 years & definitely has the gift of gab for his passengers in the 4-seater plane. My 2 gal pals sat in the back & I was up front as the co-pilot. I even got to fly the plane & was given instructions to fly higher, lower, and turn in a big circle. The 1-hour ride covered many of the scenic spots on the ground including some of the cranberry bogs, potato fields, municipal golf course, hockey dome, several resort locations both currently in operation & those that went bankrupt in past years, etc. John gave a wonderful history of the area & pointed out that Eagle River is a part of the world's largest chain of lakes initiating from the days of lumber passage down to Wausau, WI. Lakes were heightened or lowered to accommodate successful passage of timber. John took one of the gal's smart phones & moved it around in such a way that the end result will make us look like we are spinning in circles. To top that, he also did something to make us feel like we were parachuting out of an airplane. WHAT A RIDE! Scenic, informative, fun, sometimes a bit scary, humorous & opportunities for many photo ops. I'd do it again in a second!
