  1. “100,000 miles of drinking…” Freudian slip?
  2. It’s been there several years.
  3. Anybody got a pair for sale? 5’8” here. Would be nice to sit back a bit.
  4. What breed is this? Looks like a Jack Russell.
  5. “At that point people were separated in to various lines…” ”Then there was an additional separation…” Sounds familiar somehow.
  6. I’ve been reading my Garmin GNX 375 Navigator Pilot’s Guide and there is an Anonymous Mode for ADS-B. Not sure if this is helpful, but throwing it out there. If you have a Garmin ADS-B device, I’m sure you can enable Anonymous Mode.

Instead of a flight ID, the unit transmits the call sign “VFR.” Not sure how that works on an IFR flight plan tho.

  8. Which state rules/regs are you quoting here?
  9. Sending a check to the People's Republic of Michigan this week to pay the sales tax on my newly acquired Rocket.
  10. I flew for the Navy and went through dunker training years ago. I’m not as spry and in shape as I was then. As for passengers, I think flying an extra 15-30 minutes going around the south end of the lake is worth the extra cost in peace of mind. Just thinking out loud. Great discussion!
