Did you notice the small blue model of what looks like it could be a Harley in the guy's bookcase?

Thanks

Hey Doug,

STILL enjoying the RR.

Several years ago I had a big bag of chips (packaged at sea level of course, Maui ) explode in the back of the Subaru as I was crossing one of the high passes here in CO.

Scared the piss out of me for about a half second!

Thanks again for the entertainment ...... and t-shirts ....... and stickers.

Rob

Doug, the reason the they have low air pressure in the plane is usually due to airframe age...Its a simple way to keep older planes flying and not have to pay for expensive repairs. You were gutsy to fly on that plane.

well, its not like they asked
'would you prefer to ride on the new 797 jumbo with barcoloungers, or this old soviet piece of shit with wooden seats'

You takes what you can get, when your in Magadan!

I'm stoked to see your report again I can't wait for your next trip. Too bad I didn't get a chance to meet you at Long Beach show, I was busy working in my own booth and only saw you walk by

Can't wait.

I'm so happy to see you continue the RR. It's something I dream of doing.

Thanks

Good to see that RR come back to life. Gawk, Russian aircraft, I was scheduled out of Kiev on what was supposed to be KLM which code shared with Ukranian Air. Since that experience I never complain about coach seats again, luckily there was a gymnast team of tiny Ukranian girls one who sat next to me. Despite her having the worst BO I didn't mind having that bit of extra room. I understand that they fly 737's now of unknown age and history.

How's the Cannonball Plans, I may run down to NV to see the group come through.

yep, set a Maxton land speed record in the rotary class, and broke it 3 times after that

I'da done a ride report, but they were really short rides. Maybe one day I'll get around to posting pics in my garage thread
