Epic cross country flight opportunity for you, the person reading this now.
Great way to see the country by air.

I bought a Cessna-150 for fun (as my Cirrus SR-22 is not for fun :) ). It is located in Alabama currently, while I live in California. I will be flying it here in the beginning of September (likely starting Sept 10). As this is a slow plane with a small fuel tank, there will be many stops along the way. If the weather is perfect, the trip will take three days. If it is not, then maybe five.

What does this mean for you? If you're interested in a roadtrip-by-air adventure sometime in September, reply here or contact me. You will be responsible for getting yourself to the airport in Alabama on time for departure (if you arrive to Birmingham near the time I do, we can taxi-pool to the airport where the plane lives: Shelby County Airport in Alabaster, AL), your own part of whatever lodging costs end, and your own food costs. You will be dropped off at Palo Alto Airport on completion of the journey (though, I suppose, could get off earlier at any of the other stops).

I will be flying by day and sleeping by night. The plane's range is 3 hours, so most days will involve 2 or 3 hops of 3 hours each and nights will be free of flight.

The cost to you besides your own expenses is zero. The plane has two seats, so I can take one person with me.

Interested?

Sorry +Dmitry Grinberg​​, was trying (not so successfully) to be humourous. I guess it's just the old stereotype of rockstars in the US in 50s crashing when flying XC in single engine planes, these daya I guess aviation engines are much more reliable, but then you jump out of working planes as well :-)
Me I'm rather conservative and chose PGs as the are designed to fly without an engine and you launch slowly from hill, no jumping out required :-)

The court should first make her pay to serve all the defendants, and then toss the lawsuit due to lack of jurisdiction when it comes to "moral and religious" law :)
A Nebraska woman is suing all homosexuals on Earth for breaking "religious and moral laws," according to court records filed Tuesday.

Well, that ended quickly.


"The United States Federal Courts were created to resolve actual cases and controversies arising under the Constitution and the laws of the United States," Judge Gerrard said. "A federal court is not a forum for debate or discourse on theological matters."

Are you a cat person or a dog person? In honor of International Cat Day on August 8 (sorry dogs), we wanted to understand more about the social characteristics of these two camps of animal lovers.

The headline is a bit silly but the text is a worthwhile read. 
New research suggests that the American dream isn’t alive in Scandinavia—but generous redistribution of wealth isn’t a terrible consolation prize.

"Continental breakfast" included pastries that looked about as plastic as something can. Two juice choices that were both water and sugar and colour with no juice. The room size for breakfast was tiny. With two tables (see photos) Bananas were black(see photos)

Worst service ever. Hung on hold for HOURS on Monday during business hours just to talk to a "representative". Avoid at all costs. Really. You're better off carrying your boxes across the state than dealing with this company.

Food was good. It arrived quickly and delivered what it promised. But, tea cups were small and refills were few and very far in between, to a point that I had to get up, catch a waitress, and deliberately ask for more tea.
