long time ago I tried flying in a small plane! got up about 3000 feet and wanted to jump!..no sense of control it frightened the hell out of me.later I flew across the pacific to the Philippines and "loved it!" not sure why, but the plane was a 747 may have had "something" to do with it.anyway after that initial foray on a "big ship" I loved flying and still do to this day! love the feeling of being pressed back into the seat upon take off! sooo much fun! blew a load outta Boston the first time! no bullcrap!



I have a fear of heights myself. Nearly slid over a very high edge when I was young in Canyonlands. It was a very very long drop. Fortunately I was able to spider my way back to safety. That left a lasting impression on me to this day. A healthy awareness for dangerous situations helps keep us alive. (See Darwin awards). My younger brother was into climbing, rappelling, and such and would take me along. Hard thing stepping over the edge of a cliff the first time. Then comes the trust in the equipment, my ability, my brothers ability and so forth. Ultimate hard thing for me was skydiving. Stepping out of a perfectly good plane into open air. Again, trusting equipment, training and myself out I went without pause. Glad I did. Unwarranted Fears can become paralyzing. Healthy fears keep us off of the list of the Darwin Awards. I believe Having a positive attitude helps bring positive things our way. And conversely.

I like your positive attitude about your Vanquish. Well warranted. I do have a problem though. I'm not seeing you post any finds here on AHRPs. Help me out here j.t. cool smiley

Yes, and both of them were, for some avid searchers.
