Also... sometimes I forget about my avatar here and try to wipe of off my computer screen.... that is all.
he he, happened to me once....
Who are you flying with now? and where?
Sorry for the delay, I've been keeping myself busy.
I'm still flying regional jets now based out of Detroit. It was Northwest Airlink, now Delta Connection. We also do some turboprop flying for United. My old company is the one that ended up being Era Alaska, now on the discovery channel. My old roommate is still working for them, but he won't sign the release to be on TV.
I'm still living in Alaska, but moved out of town. I elected not to get internet or cable at home. It's amazing how much more free time I have now... although it also makes it much harder to keep up with everything online with the limited internet access.
I also found out when I came home to a heater having kicked off while I was out of town that if it gets cold enough a butane lighter will not work. It had never occured to me that it could get too cold to light a lighter. I also keep matches at home now.
I understand that last week the lowest temperature ever recorded in alaska happened about 100 miles north of fairbanks at -78F Apparently that's when the weather station broke down from the temperature and stopped recording... at that time a friend stopped by my house to check on it and said it was -62. It's a much warmer -2F (-19C) there right now.
This is one of the coldest winters on record, the coldest in the past 20 years and it still has an opportunity to end up being the coldest on record before it's all said and done.
