    I wondered if that was Ranier, but don't spend a lot of time over that area. Nice pic!

        • Something you fellas may find interesting. Modern day aircraft have gone paperless. Don't fear, as there is a hardcopy back up "somewhere" up front covered in cobwebs, dried boogers, and stale Cheetoh's. All checklists, charts, EMER procedures, etc...are on an IOS device or something similar these days. Took me several months to adapt, but they do have their advantages. In years past, these desks were stacked with 30 lbs. of manuals per guy.

          • That's cool tnichols ! I remember the mountain of (expensive) Jeppesens stuff I used to lug everywhere when I was shooting for my A&P and Private fixed wing at the same time. I didn't finish either of them.

            I was overseas talking to a buddy of mine who'd bought his own plane and was working on his commercial ticket and he started showing me his charts, POH, etc on his iPad. I thought it was witchcraft.

            As an analog grunt, the idea of ALL of the shit I need being at the mercy of an electronic device terrifies the shit out of me.

            He had an amazing simulator though that let him practice approaches with "his" aircraft'
            at a ton of different airfields. Even had the taxiways, aprons, etc. I can't imagine how digital all that shit is.

            I wanted to cover up the Stormscope in a 182 because it was too diatracting to my Luddite brain. The Steerman and T6 were my huckleberry.

            I had the maddest of respect for gents like yourself that were able to start their professional lives with slide rules and transition to computers. All the while having others' lives in your hands.

            Good stuff my friend.

            Here's a quickie of my view 20mins ago:

                      Bombardier-Dallas. The building is contiguous with CAE Simuflite. Two separate entities though. Largest sim facility in the world is my understanding.

                              We do use Atlantic there. Overnighted there just last week. I'll bet your send off will be quite a soirťe! From your pics in the Nom Nom thread, it will good chow for sure.

                                  I do hope your POOSSLQ is ready for the heat and humidity of the Gulf. I moved mine 200 miles south from where she grew up and a stone's throw from the confluence of two large rivers just to the north of the Mason-Dixon line, which is hardly the South, and I thought she was going to wilt and puddle up like candle wax. She was fairly miserable until mid-October the first few years, and still hasn't really adjusted to 80% plus humidity.

                                      I started the transition several years ago by taking her to Bali during their summer. Being 8* south of the Equator at that time of year was murderous for her, but she carried on and had a good time. We learned some valuable lessons on how I could help her through tropical heat. A week in Charleston during the 4th helped to dial things in, and she outlasted several of my NOLA relatives.

                                      We we both know that August on the Gulf is going to suck, regardless of where you're from, but guns and freedom are a powerful motivator. I've also promised to find her a job she can do from my swimming pool

                                              You've reminded me of a story from a friend of mine whose last paying job before retirement was the same as yours - Challenger 300. There were many others over the years, but during Viet Nam he was driving C-130s. One day he was parked and shut-down on the ramp somewhere in Viet Nam and had the flight manual (he described it as hard-cover, and "giant") in his lap in the cockpit. I don't remember if he might have been napping, or whatever. In any case, another C-130 taxied in and parked behind him, tail-to-tail. The control surfaces in his A/C were not locked, and the prop blast from the arriving Herc shoved the elevators of his A/C to full-down. This shoved the yoke towards his gut as far as it would go, but the giant flight manual was in between, and on-end. The result was that it shoved the manual into his abdomen so far that it shut off the return-flow of blood from his abdomen back to his heart, and it was lodged so firmly he couldn't budge it. He soon passed out, and might have died had the arriving Herc not shut down in time. He wound up in the hospital in pretty serious condition for a few days. I guess it never would have happened with an iPad...

In any given gathering of people, I'm likely to be the one who doesn't even notice the temperature when others are sweltering.

                                                    I'm glad you southern fellas enjoy the heat. I can acclimate to just about anything, but it doesn't mean I enjoy it. I LOVE the cold! I love loading the stove with Oak, Cherry, or Hickory, and then step outside into the crisp, cold, air and take a whiff of that glorious smell.

                                                    Remember vh20, that wing enjoys dense air ! And so does that C-85!
