Hi! I’m India!

I’m just here living this awesome life with my dogs. I’m a backcountry pilot, structural engineer, author, travel writer, and avid yogi/swimmer/hiker. Human interaction stresses me out, so naturally my only form of expression is blogging, so welcome to 65 Whiskey!

I promised myself I would never do anything halfway, and this blog is me documenting that journey. Through my personal stories, I hope that you find inspiration to seek your passions—or at least have a good laugh at me attempting to seek mine.

PPD Certification: Week 6

PPD Certification: Week 6

We didn't start off class very well considering I didn't get the memo we were meeting at a different location. I hung out at the park...all by myself...feeling awesome because I was early. Oops. 🤫 So we showed up late. And you all know me and my anxiety when I show up late... The DW asked ...

PPD Certification: Week 5

I'm not usually an anxious person, but dog training is really forcing me to accept the fact that: 1) I can't walk in a straight line; 2) I run like a t-rex; and 3) my "here" sounds like "heel." In fact, my "here" sounds so much like "heel" that when we practiced recall drills at the ...

PPD Certification: Week 4

I think I need pants with pockets. That’s what the Dog Whisperer told me, anyway. 😝 But he’s right, I don’t know if I can keep stuffing tug toys and doggie treats in the extra folds of my clothes anymore because the toys and treats seem to be getting bigger and bigger. I'm happy to say ...

My Douchebag Flight Instructor

My Douchebag Flight Instructor

I enrolled in flight school when I was 17. I was the youngest aspiring pilot at the BOI airport at the time, and the tower always told me I sounded like a 12-year-old over the radio. I still sound like a 12-year-old, but whatever, that’s beside the point. Maybe that’s why the military pilots assigned me ...

PPD Certification: Week 3

Jasmine is an awful swimmer. I'm paranoid the Dog Whisperer is going to ask me to send her across the river to defend my honor, so we've been practicing just in case. Jasmine uses her snout as a snorkel while she drags her body through the water like a grand piano is lassoed to her back ...

PPD Certification: Week 2

The most memorable part of today was watching DW get in and out of the bite suit jacket. Him finagling with that bulky thing sang to my soul. Look at that eye contact! I don’t know if my camera in his face is equivalent to “eye contact,” but that’s what I’m going to tell people. In ...

PPD Certification: Week 1

It was blistering hot outside, and I was the only one who wore a long-sleeved shirt. 😁 Teenagers pranced along the trails at the park toward the river and shook their heads in horror like they witnessed me twirling nude under a full moon. Nude? I don’t know about that…but you bet your bum I twirled ...

Evaluations

Welcome back from a week of website maintenance! Although, that didn’t seem to deter you all from finding other ways of entertaining yourselves…and you know exactly what I’m talking about. If you need a hint: it starts with a D and ends with a W. I’m very impressed you all found out who the Dog Whisperer ...

DW's Fifth Obedience Class

DW’s Fifth Obedience Class

The dogs were NUTS today. Literally nuts. And Jasmine's in heat. Ugg. I don't know if I should have brought her to class because she was incredibly inattentive and, yet again, she drooled and panted over Thor. I'm sure she was just being annoying to the other dogs as well. I'm sorry, guys... The Dog Whisperer ...

DW’s Fourth Obedience Class

I've had Jasmine for 7 weeks now. That's crazy. As for training, Jasmine and I missed the third week of class. She was vomiting up the entire contents of her stomach, so we stayed home and she slept. Good news, though! She's actually playing with the tug toy now! 🤸 She doesn't prefer it as a ...
