      Yes sir Erie is nice,I was up that way last year on the motorcycle twice. Presque Isle and upper state New York near Peak And Peak an old town called Clymer,NY.....We stopped at the Dutch Village Restaurant to eat,very good food. Nothing much to do there but the Amish were all about
      with the kids and wives in the carriages....
      Titusville has a nice museum for the Drake Oil Well discovery in the mid 1800's. Indians just before that oil boom roamed that area and it is very interesting...also Oil City but again those are old towns...but still close to Edinboro...

      Good to hear from you Jason.
      I don't really know much about the Eastern parts.
      But I do go and get peaches in Chambersburg when the season is right. I also go a good bit to Broomal and West Chester in around Phily,PA.

      I usually Travel the turnpike,RT 76 but I am coming from Western,PA around Butler,PA.
      If your there maybe check out some of the Pennsylvania Caves "Indian Echo Caverns", Hershey Park and Fly fishing should be at it's peak. Other than those I just don't know...

      If your near me at some time, give me a holler
      but as I said I a way West of Chambersburg probably 7 hours or so...

      Take Care Buddy, Keep in Touch!.

      Jason - Thanks for the heads up on the app problem. I'm looking into it.
      I had a wonderful holiday, and I hope yours did too! There was some uncertain miscommunication due to a professor waiting too long to post grades, but I came to find out I did graduated college! Long time coming, but was a great Christmas gift to find out!

      In regards to your membership, it expires on 11-07-2014!
      Happy New Year Jason! I wish you all the best in the coming year.

      Well it is mostly a lot of us that have a concern, especially if things like this happen.
      Glad to hear the brace went South, I hear they just get in the way and sometimes cause some bad blisters…Now ya gotta watch ya don't over do the cane also they throw you off balance and other things start hurting…

      Hey good to hear from you and I will try and have a good Labor day.

      I almost posted a story about Tyson Chicken and the hiring of 700 muslims in TN
      who demanded another holiday for Labor Day to be replaced with there own religion but just haven't had the time to research it…..Never the less Tyson Chicken is now off my grocery list. Most of what I have read was the hiring was done years ago but a few hundred Americans that work for the company got screwed out of that day??????…..Chit the bed ……. only in America…..

      Thank you for that and I hope you are well. And I very much appreciate the good wishes the same for you. Love flying and am grateful for having had the opportunities--am saddened as well. Don't know what happened in AL--the Dubai one wasn't good because they kind of went down swinging, so to speak. The skipper was overcome by CO , the First Officer couldn't even see the instrument panel because the smoke was so dense. Anyway, all the best to you and thank you again and please take the best of care as well :)

      When in the NE I usually carry a Ruger GP-100 .357 with a 3" barrel and Novak sights as a trail/outdoor/CCW gun. If we are just going into the city sometimes carry a Sig 239 9mm which CCWs a bit better. PA is open carry (the CHLs are recip) so I don't worry much about printing when out and about, but some of the places we go to are in the "grey" area about having a CCW (i.e. they have some type of "no firearms" nonsense--these are generally not binding in PA, but I'm way too busy to worry about formalities and AM going to be carrying 24/7 no matter what so probably should do my best to prevent embarassment of sorts).

      Great talking with you and glad you had a good flight--GPS is amazing stuff.

      Cheers and take good care,

      The carry gun I REALLY like is the 1911--shoot a Sig C3 and a Remington R1. Gotten into M4 shooting a bit more over the last couple of years and come to admire its versatility. Shoot alot of .22 also from MK3's and a 15/22 which is a GREAT gun. Used to do mostly .22 shooting but doing more centerfire now due to the ammo thing. My wife did the CHL course with the G26 with big dots--the 10mms little brother and shot well.

      But there's nothing I can do about it so just have to feel sorry for the folks who put up with it and go to the job and places I love. The blueshirts are in large part some genuinely nice people (with some who scold and I have to remind them of their role in life) and the entire situation is surreal and disconcerting. But absent this I get to go all over which I enjoy.

      In fact, going shooting my G20 SF 10mm with the XS big dots in a few hours. I don't like the feel of the Glock but it holds 16 rounds of 10mm which is huge firepower.

      TX can be good to hunt, but I need to go with a friend who has a friend with a ranch because there isn't that much public land and much is tied up with leases. So it isn't as wide open as you might think, but there are still places. PA is actually better for me for deer and stuff (and I get to visit my folks who are older) and the nice thing about this job is you just jump on an airplane to go. The only unpleasant thing is the worthless and statist TSA crap--which makes me sad and cringe. The folks are nice enough and we can stiff-arm it as crewmembers but it just makes me sad to see Mr. and Mrs. America going through scanners looking like criminals in a banana republic just to board an airplane. I guess I feel bad for them. It's illegal, unconstitutional, and wrong--and wholly ineffective at doing anything but conditioning the average person that it's OK to delegate his rights and live in a police state.

      in efficient operation--it depends on temperature, pressure, weight, etc.).

      DFW is a huge airport too.

      Shooting is my hobby and passion--I shoot here in TX quite a bit but have unlimited ranges set up at our farm and camp. Ranges are pretty restrictive sometimes with ammo and tactics; we have a safe backstop so safety permitting can do all kinds of cool target shooting and more tactical training. I really like the steel poppers and dueling trees because they punish bad trigger technique and are actually pretty challenging and fun. Pig hunting here is great and we are overrun with the buggers so everyone wants to go shoot them. We typically use .45 colt rifles or even ARs sometimes with the right ammo--or out of traps .45s (my friend loves his springfield; I take my R1 1911). But most of my hunting is in PA because we have property there.

      They guys were dependable, showed up on time, got things built quick, and did excellent work--and great to deal with. They built us a shed and a shed/cabin which was a kind of custom deal and did just great work. We are finishing the inside, staining it, putting in a woodstove, sink, etc. so it is a labor of love but a large project which we started last year). But it is way busy bouncing back and forth from asia then going back and forth to PA, Japan, and TX so I guess my time in the air when off is pretty high too. Great time of life though and we will probably look back on this as a very cool time.

      The RJs are relatively fast and your numbers sound right--they cruise at around 480 knots true. Most jets operate for medium to longer flights between 30 and 43 thousand feet for most efficiency (it depends on the aircraft and weight--as we burn off gas leaving Hong Kong we actually drift up and being able to step climb when and where you want is a major factor

      Part 1 (had to cut and paste sorry its backwards)

      Hi and great to hear from you--first name is JJ here sorry didn't say so before !

      Had my first flight as a passenger when 12 from Pittsburgh to Erie on an Allegheny (now USAir) BAC-111 (small DC-9 which is a small MD-80). In my spare time, I work on the house here in TX and spend time with my family (just got back from Japan visiting them there; my wife is Japanese and her mom is in Sapporo, Hokkaido). I love what I do, but don't spend much time in one place even when off ! My folks have a farm in Western PA, and we have a camp and farm up near Westfield in Tioga County PA. The camp and cabin are relatively new (they are evolving from some sheds built by "The Shed Guy" out of Kane, PA--I can VERY MUCH recommend him to everyone and do to all my friends because they do quality work at a VERY reasonable price.
