    I Don't Get It

    Regardless of where I am, I always want to be somewhere else.  The other places sound great in my mind until I actually get up and start moving toward them.  Then, I just want to stay put.  But, then I don't want to be in that place either.  I dread even...

    Today I got a chance to talk to an old flying buddy from page AZ. It was nice to talk about flying with someone that understands that passion. We even talked about me coming back out west to visit. This really lifted my spirits.

    Always One Step Away From Where I Want To Be

    Having Moved a Lot I Guess That Makes Sense?

     I lived in 8 places before finishing High School.  I've lived in 3 countries, several states and still get wanderlust sometimes.  I guess I want to either see what's at the end of that rainbow or over the distant hill of just want a change.  But, I keep...
