In Topic: Private airplane anarchy.

I got paid to fly for 25 years.  Navy helo and fixed wing, corporate after that.  Spend time on the boat now, can afford it.  Current joke amoung most of my private pilot friends,  they keep their planes so they can go buy a $100+ hamburger for lunch.  Last time I crunched the numbers, I can drive from Tidewater, VA to Jacksonville, Fl in 9 hours, 30 gals of gas at ~2.00.  Flying an affordable plane would save me maybe an hour, 8 hours at 10gals/hour of ~4.00 avgas just doesn't make financial sense.  Plus I don't need an IFR equiped plane to drive on the interstate.

My daughter gets extremely sea sick.  Tried all the various remedies, the electronic wrist band is the only thing that works for her.  She wears it constantly at a low setting, increasing as the symptoms appear.
