Say... does anyone know where we are? I was so caught up in the conversation I didn't pay attention to the signs.

I think we should have made a left at Cucamonga.....

Working the night shift, you probably have some strange experiences in your line of work... do a lot of your stories start with, "You ain't gonna believe this $#!t!" :laugh:

One of San Antonio's finest helped me out one night. I was stuck on "Frontage Road" and couldn't find my street. Hmmmmm, Frontage Road. Largest road in San Anton.

Doug will know what I'm talking about.

OMG that stupid system is so jacked up... LMAO

garcmol 06-22-2012 09:50 AM

I was on the ring (1408 or something) and my cousin said, "Get off on the Frontage Rd." Well hell, there's only a Frontage road every couple of miles!

It was a long trip. I thing the Houston to San Antonio leg was quicker than me driving in town!

It's cake now.

1604... the loop...

What's funny is when I am forced to drive into OK... I wonder and marvel at the lack of access roads... There are none... Exit the highway at 70 and turn into X store... or take an exit and drive about 11 teen miles back into no mans land for gas...

That shouldn't be a problem in the future, next time you're in Oklahoma and get lost, give me a call. I can help.....







We'll have you in :canada: in no time. :D

Once you get the hang of them it's great. I think of it as "pit road"

:facepalm: Rotorheads...

It was an attempt to do a full landing but the earth was repelling the vibrations...
Chris and I have been over this before... Ten thousand loose parts flying in close formation is not an aircraft...
















































Actually, Having worked on helicopters as a medic and flying on them to work all the time, I'm simply amazed what they can do in the hands of a competent and skilled pilot...

Fixed for you... I took the controls of a Bocal <<, not sure of the spelling... for close to an hour one time... level straight flight at the time. i was the last one left on a crew change and they couldnt carry everyone on the big bird, so they sent this thing out... For all I know it was on autopilot, and I was just mimicking the AP... :iono:

True... JSF was the last project I was working on when I retired from the AF. If 911 hadn't thrown a monkey wrench into things I'd probably still be working on it.

Planes are like dragsters and rotaries are like AC cars. Built for different things. But I agree with Rob, a good pilot makes a world of a difference
