Kinda Dreamy Jeff...

Maybe how the airlines want us to feel?

Nice job getting the sun shafts to read.

Is that with the Clarity going negative? Either way nice piece of heaven there Jeff.

Jay, Phorever is exactly right.

I'm thinking that any hope Sheila ever had of a cruise, other than one of the Viking River variety, has vanished. I never want to be farther than I can swim from shore. Carnival might as well carve that piece of junk up for scrap. They offered everyone a hotel room in Mobile, or a bus ride to Houston. Now that 9 hour bus ride would be just about as pleasant as the cruise.

The dock at Mobile Bay must be filled to capacity with lawyers. I don't think the $500 in cash and a free cruise is going to pacify those folks.

In case you all missed it on the regular forum... I was at Vandenberg Air Force Base over the weekend to photograph NASA's Landsat Data Continuity Mission on Monday. It was my first visit to VAFB and I was extremely lucky as there was none of the famous fog at the launch site! The last clear Atlas daytime launch from Vandenberg occurred in 1999!

I photoblogged about the trip HERE.

Here are a couple favorites.

#1 A remote, sound triggered camera, captured this view of the rocket lifting off only 150ft away.






#2 Another view from one of my remote cameras.

Hi Guys and Gals,

FYI, I've been thinking about it for some time, I just deleted my Facebook account. I never really spent much time on it, so why have all that hanging out there. Ditto for the ISAP Facebook page. I've gotten some heat, third or fourth hand, for not being an accessible board member on that page. Candidly, ISAP requires quite enough of my time, and I'm plenty accessible if someone feels the need to contact me. Just a step to simplify life a bit. Just didn't want anyone here to think I "unfriended" them, that is not the case.

Jim,

They just might have done you and Sheila a favour. Personally I couldnt think of any thing worse than being cooped up on a ship with 3998 people just like my neighbours. I know people from down under who have been regulars to the USA and buy a second hand car and work it over region by region, and apart from your amazing scenery, when people hear the accent and ask "Aussie or Limey?" the world opens up for them.

It is the same the world over. People, esp off the beaten track are generous as well as proud of their country. Dont listen to the doomsayers who tell you the world is dangerous. (well maybe Central and Sth America isnt too good these days, or so I hear) but SE Asia is amazing. For a soft landing try Cambodia; Raffles Le Royale in Phnom Penh is where Jacquie Kennedy stayed. Unfortunately you can no longer get a room there for $105 per night because the world has discovered Indo Chine but it is worth the stay just to experience the bath towels. And of course Angkor is on par with the Pyramids

I have a retired friend who manages an aid program there. They make concrete rain water tanks for villagers and schools, which might sound silly but there are high levels of arsenic in many of the underground aquifiers. It might get a little rough (It is on my bucket list) but eight or ten days in the field with there local country manager and you will get to places that are so far out of the tourist circuit you will think you are in heaven.

Just get out there with that big grin of yours and dont expect perfection (Because they and their culture are different) and you will love it

Reckon your clients can spare you for three weeks?? They have to. Go while you are still young

Tim

This is a news story and video from this mornings meteor in Russia. Over 500 people were injured when the sonic boom shattered windows in buildings and cars.

Jay, phenomenal (I don't believe I have used that word yet) shot of the Warthog. Rivet counters beware.

Good Morning Tim,

Thanks for the tips! I'm afraid I missed the "while you're still young" window. We're going to do a Viking River Cruise sometime this year.

Hope you and your family are recuperating from your medical ordeal. I've been thinking about you all multiple times a day. Life's a bit of a scary proposition at times.

I think I might have mentioned this. While Gunny and I were watching the F4 at AFW last year I asked him what the range was on it. He told me 1.4 with the drop tank. Glenn's MiG was only about an hour with both drops. Not designed for 7 dollar JetA.

Range of course is relative. Our standard configuration for our missions were with wing tanks. Our guys averaged 1.25 hrs/sortie out over the gulf flying intercept missions. When they returned, we would refuel with 1200-1400 gals or about 9000-11,000 lbs (sometimes more). When they flew clean, they would log about .9 hrs/sortie. They couldn't make a cross country to El Paso with the wing tanks when the Jet Stream was over Texas.

I was sent to McClellan AFB TDY to support one of our F-4's flying as a target. They were logging 2.0 hr/sorties. The aircrew was exhausted when they came back because they flew a circuit given to them by the ground controllers at a slow airspeed. (Very dull for a fighter crew.)

Hope you're not going to fly through Atlanta for that cruise...

Wow, disgusting. Wonder how many times we eat out and the conditions are similar out of sight? Never mind, I don't want to know.

I "used" to eat at a restaurant (Oceana) in the Quarter, New Orleans whenever I had a layover there. That was until I caught it on an episode of Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares. Surprised I never had a case of botulism or Salmonella poisoning after seeing the issues there. Never again despite the rehab to it.
