"All you really want to know is how difficult it is, and I'd compare hang-gliding to opening an umbrella or smearing a bagel with cream cheese."

The hurricane plan looks good but I'm going to be on another trip the weekend before, returning Monday the 14th. Currently my thought was to leave on the 17th and return to LA on the 23rd, figuring out the details dependent on who is riding with me and what Greg, Steve, &co were doing. Are you guys ...

He was the first and only person I've witnessed pissing into a briefcase. I once had to redirect him from pissing in the fridge, in front of some guests no less. Old habits die hard! Thanks for the stories Mike. You'll be happy to know Orian was very much the same guy you knew in college :) Marshall

How did you test with the simulator?

I turned on the simulator and manually adjusted the sink and climb rates, and got no tones out of it.

I like your plan Steve, I may do the same as I want to hit 2 sites on the way out as well, and have been meaning to get to POM. Also retrieve logistics seem to work out better if we have more pilots.

Has the sectionals for the entire united states stitched together, with a easy to use pan/zoom interface.

So, has anyone who doesn't live in Sylmar registered yet? If so, what did you use for the second piece of identification? I'm not sure what they want.
