    Cougar flight 91

    I watched another review of the flight 91 crash last night on the Smithsonian channel. I think it brought out some new facts that I had not heard of before. Very worth watching if it comes up again. Very sad.

    Cougar flight 91 12 March 2009

    I think the border is still closed between Canada and the USA due to COVIS. If it is not opened soon the 2021 tourist season will surely take a big hit. I do not presently have any long distance travel plans. I have a healthy respect for helos and won't walk near one which is running its rotor...

    Doug: I'm very glad to hear from you, and to know that Decker is doing. well. To be in an over water crash and be the only survivor would be more than I could live with! Please contact me if you are coming down this winter....the last visit was too long ago. Mike: I know I've had a standing...

    Cougar flight 91 12 March 2009

    Thanks for the well wishes. I'm fine. Bike's been mostly in the garage since COVID, and I'm rethinking the risk v/s reward. My bones are getting more brittle as the bike gets heavier, but I'd sure like to make another trip to the Rock before checking out. If I could talk my wife into an...

    Cougar flight 91 12 March 2009

    Glad you were not on board Mike! The sole survivor, who was interviewed on the film, is a gent named Robert Decker. Does anyone know of his current condition?

    Ever seen a Marine Railroad?

    When my wife and I did the "Great Loop" on our 32' Nordic Tug we actually went over that rig. On that 9 month cruise the other 'Lock' we found fascinating was the one that looks like 2 oven pans rigged as a teeter-totter where one goes up while the other one goes down and your boat is floating...

    Cougar flight 91 12 March 2009

    On my TV there was a recent Smithsonian Channel show under "Air Disasters" and "Atlantic Ditching" which reviewed this terrible tragety. I remember the discussion on this web site at the time. This show opens up old wounds but, to me, appears to truthfully deliver a factual review of the crash...

    What came after Tennessee?

    I'm glad you're going Mike, and sad that I won't be there this year to support you giving your talks. I know they will be outstanding! I have submarine crew reunions which are sucking off my travel money and time this year.

    Ya can't do it all....

    Jim, Your rides will be more meaningful if you include goals. And, the goals will help focus your thoughts on how to obtain each goal in the most efficient manor. That's why I joined the IBA...additionally, they will certify your ride and provide a nice certificate as proof of completion. My...

    Planning... have you started.

    Next season is still a dream, nothing specific. Today's club breakfast ride - seasonable: 20-27 degrees C :) It's easier (less illegal) here in the states with most interstate's speed limit of 70 mph and our successful riders complete the ride in about 18 hours, about 55 mph, average. To...

    IT Steve

    Steve and I had a wonderful day riding that day back in 2009, I believe. Anyway it was before the soiree that Steve participated in with you'all. He was busy getting his KLR ready for that soiree.

    RTR Rally 2018

    Sounds like a plan! Be sure to document your coast to coast to coast Mike! Might consider the Dust to Dawn gathering in Dawson, YT around the longest day ( it's sort of 'on the way').

    No Mike, I don't think I've ever crossed paths with him. I'll look him up.

    Best of Biking Series: Guide to BMW R1200GS

    Looks like required reading for anyone considering or owning a GS/GSA. I put 40,000 miles on mine and the only complaint was the noise level. That's why I went back to an RT.

    Atlantic Canada: Lighthouse Challenge, 60 in 30 Days

    That's a great picture Mike! But it does need a bike in there somewhere too. Keith Falkner! Holy Snot! How many years has it been since we camped out there at River Ranch Keith? I hope you are still riding.
