The toughest strip I know of is Sparrevohn AFS.  The Alaska supplement says "Caution: runway surrounded by mountains. Runway located on slope of 3,236 foot mountain. Approach from south only, land runway 34 only. Successful go-around improbable. Caution: Winds in excess of 20 knots (Radome winds 25 knots) may produce severe turbulence."  I believe the supplement says that after landing contact ground on 121.5
The average pilot, despite the sometimes swaggering exterior, is very much capable of such feelings as love, affection, intimacy and caring. These feelings just don't involve anyone else.
