Ok then, here's some drool fuel to keep you going until the next time you can roll out my way.
I see these bubbas all the time, and even yesterday we had a flight of 2 F16's out of Luke buzz us, aggravating the moldy oldies around the golf course next door to the runways.


One of the C130 Slurry Bombers taxiing for take off

Army Blackhawk stopping for gas and lunch in the cafe

F18 Hornet that stopped by the last year's airshow. Their takeoff was spectacular! Full burner, soft field takeoff (that's when they go parallel to the ground to pick up speed fast, then yank back on the stick and go vertical!)

I wake up in the morning, and hear the trees calling for me...come make us into lumber!

My brother goes nutz over air shows. He was to one 10 years ago with a cousin who had his own plane and flew down. Nice pictures treecyclers. In one of my job I got taxied in Hughes 500's (angry egg), Long Rangers, Twin and single Otters, and Beavers. All pretty old machines (refurbished) especially the fixed wings from the 40's. When I read the manufacturers lable in the cargo compartment one day I says to myself, I hope you hold together in the wind, rain and fog of Rupertland. I was on some pretty violent trips. ;D :D

Instead of hijacking htis thread for airplane stuff, and the bunch of crazy pix I have of planes (one of hte benefits of being the head of Federal Security at the local Airport), if there's sufficient interest in seeing more airplane photos, IM me direct, and I'll start a new thread for that.

Make a new thread if you wish. Some of us too shy will likely add some of our own or link them from our galleries. ;D

Depends on the mode of transport across the big wide mote. Now a row boat with oars, and a small mast for a sail, on the odd day with an east wind, would be pretty cheap. ;D Hmm, come to think of it, it would be closer to sail with the westerlies to Hawaii, then make the big leap to the west coast. Might want a small tarp to keep the hot sun and rain off and a big ice chest for the sandwiches....hmm I'm thinking that tarp in hot boiling sun would be like a green house in under it. The tarp could double as a drinking water catchment in them pacific storms. Don't forget the bucket to collect it. ;)

Well, trying to think of everything (options) you know. ;) :D

hehe thanks guys...

Not sure I'd fetch much at auction. I do cook really well, though, wonder if that makes me more valuable??

I'll get there ONE DAY. I want to come over and spend a couple of months with my kids, travelling all over the USA, Canada and of course CR!!

It's a dream, and a plan, and I want to do it before my kids are too old to go travelling with their mum.

asy :D
