Speaking of L-39's Did anyone else see Pawn Stars recently? What kind of woose would NOT jump at a chance for a backseat ride. As for me.... "I'd party till I puked" or is that a regional expression?

That's not suprising in the least. I'm wondering when I was watching "Why someone who has hanger space call up a pawn shop to sell a jet"? That would be near the last place I would go.

johnr, pfffft, please. Old news. murleys moving on to newer, more bad-ass government retirees... and if i remember right, the latest ones max out at like 13,000 mph, are black and white and red hot when they blow through the atmosphere........ can't wait to see the gopro footage on this one!

Haven't been in the loop, haven't seen you guys in a long-ass time. Had a very devastating year, and it just keeps coming. So I haven't been able to get to any of your outings. So I give up, what's Black and White and flies at 13,000MPH? I would hav e a difficult time believing Chris bought an SR-71! Maybe some day soon we can crawl down a hole den trow back a couple two-tree beers an' at.

What are you going to do with a retired space shuttle? Ya know, I have a contact at Scaled Composits in Mojave if you're looking at spizzace travel.

Don't have a weekend off again after this one until the 28th-29th. This weekend I might be doing something with Amy Saturday, some sort of dinner at her fire station or something, then Sunday I'll probably go straighten out mom's checkbook and stuff that she can't do now that she's lost her mind. Might could still do something Sunday though. After the 28-29, no more weekend days until Feb 18-19 and Mar 3-4.
