    Bet that would need a bit of resurfacing from time to time.
    "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome and charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime" Mark Twain... so... Carpe the living sh!t out of the Diem

    I'd rather look back at my life and say "I can't believe I did that" instead of being there saying "I wish I'd done that"

    Looks hard on the tires. I understand that tires are a big part of the landing thing too.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Ah yes indeed, tires are less important when landing in the forest.

    That plane has to find a nice rain cloud to fly through.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.
