    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...

    Catching Up With Friends

    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.
