Typical Airfare Malady...

While flying on this Piaggio 180 back to Austin, TX from Santa Fe, NM I dropped an Oreo between the bucket seat and the wall, it was never to be seen again. Sad. Then in the Robinson on the way from the airport to the ranch I couldn't even get a martini so I left asap for Dallas, TX. in another low mile, triple white, '76 Eldorado Cnv. with the top down listening to Pure Prairie League on cassette while eating a couple of tacos. I tell you travel these days is terrible.

PS Ye ol' Wagoneer with the Pia.
Remy the cute French pilot of the Rob.

PSII This shit gets expensive

And to think I feel blessed just to munch on a Hydrox or two while squished between a fat lady and a pungeant Arab in coach class.

Nice plane. I rode one of those into Key West last year. Very smooth.

I like the 105SL tail number. But it should be 107SL.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

I didn't assume you owned it, was just curious what it cost to operate an hour. I know the trans-atlantic capable Lear's and Challengers are around $4,000 - $5,000 per hour; wondered what that one costs.
