    Default Sometimes. Something cool just happens

    IMG_1051.jpgEvery once in a while sumtin cool happens.

    Got a ride home on one my companies private jets.
    Not a great picture but this is about 26,000 ft altitude looking at Mt McKinley, North Americas tallest Peak at a tad over 20,000 ft. You can just see the top of the mountain.

    My state rules. 🙂

    Beautiful picture by the way! It looks like you could take out walking and stump your toe on the tip of the mountain. Hope you enjoyed your flight, I love smaller planes/jets.

    How was Fairbanks?

    I need to plan a trip to go back, I bet it's changed a bunch since I left in 1996

    I miss fishing the Chena River, not too many Salmon runs in DFW

    Same here, I work in a small office in downtown right next to the city's food pantry and a thrift shop. I could never dream of flying in a company jet lol. Thanks for sharing Alaska.

    Wife went on a G5 for a company trip, and said it was pretty awesome. 13 cities in 4 days on the east coast was the hard part, but being dropped off at the plane helps I guess. My kid got to go on the plane when we picked her up at her company's private hangar/terminal, he was excited, she was sick of planes at that point.
    Common sense is so uncommon nowadays it ought to be reclassified as a super power

    Not bad. 50 degrees. Waiting for the first spring rain to clean it up and get things greening

    No lie. The company truck left for us at the conceirge plane service had 176 miles on it.

    The company buys a million worth of trucks every 19 months give or take.

    Use to be fords. Now it's all Chevy
