Thanks Jan Arie! He texted me when he was seated and said it was the most comfortable accommodations he had ever experienced. Good to hear, because the flight is a long one!

Ray, I'm all about being organized and prepared, but I gotta say, I'd be creeped out knowing there was a headstone with me on it just waiting for the 100% mortality rate to kick in. I'm thinkin', my ashes, out the tail of a B25 at sunset accompanied by a couple of "Little Friends" doing Victory rolls. Now that is the way to be remembered .

JR just texted me, they are crossing Ireland. He deserves this trip, he's fought the current administration's draconian international banking laws until he's blue in the face and he has not given up. Few people probably know it, but our laws have become so onerous that no international banks want to have anything to do with US citizens because of the reams of paperwork and severe penalties if a clerical error is made. They are defaulting to just refusing business from Americans, and isn't that nice, how far we have come (down) in such a short time.

That what I was thinking! My buddy has become much too attached to his recliner, has declined to have surgery for a shoulder and knee problem. He covets handicapped parking, canes and being waited on. If that was me, it would be time to go out the back of a B-25. Heck, it probably cost less than a burial. I don't want a headstone (my kids are not going to visit a cemetery and I prefer them to remember the good from me), so I told my wife if she can't bury me on the farm to turn me to ashes. I think the USAF should consider taking donations for ashes being poured out the back of a C-17. I would pay it since they don't fly the C-141 anymore.

Exactly! A B25 ride, and a chorus of "When I Get Where I'm Goin' " followed by some Texas BBQ , some great memories, a fitting adios.

Now this could be a considerable leap forward, if one sees opportunity in drone work....................

It appears to remove much of the quirky uncertainty that we have discussed here.

I have no interest in a wake or burial after I'm done here on earth. When I'm gone I'll be happy if there is a big party and all my best stories are shared by my friends, family and co-workers. Then I'd like my children to visit all the places I've been blessed to experience in my life and scatter some of my ashes in each of those locations....I promise to leave them a list. Guess I'm gonna have to make sure I can add the back of a B-25 to the list!

Jim,

Anyone I know who has flown with Emirates only has positive things to say about them compared to most carriers - even those travelling economy.

Hi Mark,

I spoke with JR this morning (my time) and he said the flight was unexpectedly enjoyable. Not sure what his experience will be settling from DBX to Kenya. He may have to make short side trips to Zurich and Milan too. I told him to work hard and keep his focus on our Global Express....

The sun has finally emerged in Mendoza: there be mountains! They tell us this is just the foothills range: Aconcagua is hidden behind these mere hills.

Was out with the 11-24 trying some star shots tonight.
1st time I've really tried this sort of thing.
