  1. It really does sound perfect. I can't wait to jump one.
  2. "I guess it comes down to a simple choice really. Get busy living or get busy dying." Sorry, it's all I got. Lots of good responses already. An attaboy to the first one that names (easy) the movie.
  3. Met Blind John at Lost Prairie a number of years ago. He had the most amazing stories. I wish I could be half as brave for half as long.
  4. Got mine (actually 3). First class print on a quality shirt. Received very fast. Thanks!

  7. http://blog.skytrekker.net/2010/12/turbulence.html "A thermal column (or thermal) is a column of rising air. Thermals are created by the uneven heating of the Earth's surface from solar radiation. The Sun warms the ground, which in turn warms the air directly above it. The sun warms different surfaces more than others - asphalt, concrete, grass, and water - all heat differently. The warmer air expands, becoming less dense (lighter) than the surrounding air mass. The mass of lighter air rises, and as it does, it cools due to its expansion at lower, high-altitude pressures. It stops rising when it has cooled to the same temperature as the surrounding air. Associated with a thermal is a downward flow surrounding the thermal column. The downward moving exterior is caused by colder air being displaced at the top of the thermal."
  8. Raising my glass of beer to you now Burt. See ya when I see ya.
  9. Well that sucks. It's too much. I am going to guess that for many of us the disappointment comes from the missed opportunity. Every year I was going sign up for the lifetime membership next year. Now that the price has gone up, this is the year I would have done it. If only the price hadn’t gone up.
