Hi Flip Flop.

Allah knows ya did change lifestyle, going from single to married, not only that, but to marry a muslim...Hat of to her for eating pork and drinking ya under the table...And for marrying you...Truly a good sport..(Does she have a younger sister?..)

The boat looks just fine and I would be the first one to sign up for Flip's Uncle's booze cruise, but as usual, days off are not what they used to be when I was un-employed.

Today just back from VVI, a truly fine place with a female to male ratio of 4 to 1 or something to that effect. What it means is that there is a lot of prime puzzy floating around, surrounded by a pretty Spanish speaking life support system. Fine young things they are and they seem to like mature men from Norway and other capitalist places. Climate is good in Bolivia and so is the food. Top it off with cheap living and ya are close to paradise....

I'm drunk, I'm drunk, I'm drunk.
Hmm, nothing earth shaking there. In fact that was my state of mind on a very regualr bases before I got married. After the knot is tied and the hoenymoon is over, one gets in trouble on a regular bases for being just that. (Drunk )

Allah is indeed akbar.
So they say, but at 0400 in the morning while trying to stave off a hang-over and having the speakers blare Allah Akbar, sounding more like a cow being raped, I went downstairs and cut the wires to the speakers. Only then did the TowerDog sleep well the rest of the day in a certain Middle Eastern country that that was as fukked up as the rest of them.

The moral of the story is: Don't sing that tune too loud early in the morning..It hurts and it brings back memories of the TowerDog almost spending the rest of his life in a sand-box jail....

TD, as we`re now speaking of gods and such, I would like to add a saying from a god who was not a fairytale figure "and so castles made of sand melt into the sea eventually" J.H. Or, in a 90s way of saying it "learn to swim!" -Tool Good you got out of the sandlåda dude!

Well, finally we`re getting some snow, so guttn is preparing his skis while other folks in Oslo and further south are having trouble, same procedure as every year, due to 50 cm snowfall

WOW! 4 pages of Viking Bar Revival and still not moderated!

Guttn, my man!
You're having a smile over the fact that them Oslo-ians will face some trouble over 50cm of snow.

Well, you should come to my neck of the woods,....we're expecting 5-10cm of the white fluffy stuff and people are already bracing for impact!!
Sure as sh*t, tomorrow this whole town will be on its knees, begging King Bore for mercy. I kid you not!
There will be cars all over, and the trams`n´buses will be sitting ducks, just waiting for it all to pass......

If I only could go for some skiing!!! I envy you!
Where were you based again...?!

Yeah Guttn, I suppose so..I was over there for more years than I care to think about, although it gives me the creepy "Earned my dues feeling".

On the other hand, whenever I go back to the sand box I get this love-hate feeling as now I am home again..

Perhaps not so much in the Middel East, Saudi, Egypt, Kuwait, Dubai, etc. althought Allah knows I have paid my dues there, but rather South Asia and especially India....
India was my first contract, hauling DC-8s for Air India Cargo. Also my first jet and first 121 ACMI place.
That was back in 1988 when some of the kids on this here forum were crawling around the carpet with diapers around their arses howling for mama when, but not if, it got too moist back there.

That being said, the Big Dog don't take no credit for having "been there, done that". The whole place is a sh!t-hole and I'd take my hat off to anybody getting a decent job from out of flight school and not having to go that route and sell yer soul hauling junk out of 3rd world places.
Good experience as far as yer flying skills and radio-work, but not good for family life and pension points. (non-sced flying don't pay no pension or retirement.) Stick with SAS or Widerøe for lubing up yer old days with premium Frog Juice as well as leggy F/As with a secret lust for mature men and 4 stripes..Way to go.

TD, I guess it`s one of those "good to have done it, but even better now that it`s done" things. It seems the trend nowadays is to switch companies just because it`s the trend. The grass is greener kinda thing. Going from nice, steady jobs to more sketchy ones for whatever reason. Hope they find what they`re looking for though.

An2, yupp did some skiing yesterday, and will do the same this afternoon. X-country skiing this weekend, but not the racing kind, just "going for a walk" in fresh air. Tomorrow though, me thinks it`s time to hurt myself on a snowboard again. Got some nice powder tonight, but since it`s Sunday, that means the hills are fairly crowded. Monday on the other hand.... Oh yeah, based in Bodø, but regularly travel through OSL on my way to or from work. Hopefully will rank high enough in a couple of years to be based at OSL, but for now I`m very very happy.

Guttn,

Face it Guttn, there is no such thing as a steady job. I`m sure TD can second that. You can have all the fancy permanent contracts in the world, if your airline goes tits up, you`re history.
Switching jobs can be positive beyond doubts. First of all, as a Norwegian, if you venture outside Steinroeysa you will discover that there is a world South Of Droebak. Not many Norwegian passport holders know that. Then, you will notice that the sandpit is warmer than Finnmarksvidda, that your new SOP is as good as your old one, and that a hand-shake does not mean that the other person wants to steal your fingers.
I have met too many fellow Norwegians down route, and I dare say that too many should have done their homework before packing the suitcase.
TD,
Bolivia. Never had the chance to sing and dance around that area. With Bolivia not on my map I have to vote for Asia, Africa and as #3, Middle East. Lots of good stuff to taste, and some of it smells good too

Hårek, words of wisdom and experience But may I add that some companies are more prone to selfimplode than others and if your homework is done well and correctly, then you shouldn`t induldge on everything that is presented to you on a platter Of course their are hard times and the market is not so pilot-friendly

Gutten,

You're one seriously messed up individual. Not only do you, allegedly, go uphill skiing (langerend) which is violation of every law of nature I've ever heard of, you also confess to being a schneeplanker. Hrrumph, my good man, the only good schneeplanker is a dead schneeplanker, so says Floppy!

Schneeplanking is for misadjusted kids with baggy pants, stupid hats who rather smoke grass than drink scotch. It's just not on mate, it's anti-christ impersonated and every schneeplanker above the age of 16 should be shot on sight, legally if not on a reward basis.

Does it show that I don't fancy schneeplanking (snowboarding)?

Anyway, done my good deed for today and am off for a spot of sightseeing in BSL and a few cold brews. Think I'm going to stay over for the week-end, find myself a suitable mountain and go SKIING!

Flop signing off

A Dane in the mountains.... ON skis HAHAHAHA!!!!! Somebody please call 911 and warn all other tourists that there`s a crazyman and he`s about to cause an avalanche! And I`m guessing that`s why he`s called flopster... flounder is an even better name me thinks

Dude, you`ve misunderstood the whole alpine thing.... while you`re up in the hills trying your damndest not to cross your skis - yes I know t`s hard when you only have 2 legs and 2 arms and lack of coordination - the rest of us are already back at the bottom of the hill at something called the afterski. This is where all the noggies and the swedish chicks go early in the afternoon for some beers and to hook up for later in the evening. Never seen any danes there, but maybe one will fall off the lift and by mistake slide in the door And of course you`re welcome in if you`re not too hurt or shaken

This could go on and on and on and on....

Oh yeah, my brain is totally messed up even though I`ve never touched the green tobacco

Bolivia was very nice. The ratio of females to male bodies in that town is sinful. In fact the mind is spinning, kingsize bed and all...

Hmm, so Flip Flop is coming too? Tell him to leave the skies at home, it sure is flat enough for a Dane to feel right at home, but aye, there ain't no snow except in Disneyland and we ain't sailing there.

So uh, what outfit is starting to fly to Florida? Hmm, jumpseat back to the cold country now and then, good deal....

For a while there was a B-767 flying non-stop OSL-FLL, convenient ride for sure. Same people starting up again? Was it Premier (Air) or some spinoff of Scandia Charters or whatever that place was called?

So Mr. Engel, vacation is over and now ya are back in the sweatshop making doughnuts?
Nice meeting with ya and especially the missus, charming she was.
(Next time bring the sister, the old dog needs a midlife crises now and then and now is the time)

its a major charter operator here in scandi with 767's, there I said it, whos gonna fly those trips. they are in the ITA deal I think, so you shouldnt have any problems jumping with them. dunno if they will go ARN or OSL or both.

(Next time bring the sister, the old dog needs a midlife crises now and then and now is the time)
we'll bring plenty of blond ladies with us, and some men, who are more ladies then those women...

So Mr. Engel, vacation is over and now ya are back in the sweatshop making doughnuts?

Whoooa there, Mr. Cod, I never promised anyone that I'd be infesting your place this year. Not that I would mind coming over, but the calender is already over subscribed.

I'm afraid the only part of North America I'll be visiting this year is Seattle. Company has went and bought a fleet of 777 freights, and guess who's going to develop the ground handling training?

Should my luck turn really sour, the company might dispact my sorry arse to Wilmington/Ohio, but sunny Florida is sadly not in the picture.

Don't count your chickens yet though, got another mate in Orlando who's constantly nagging for me to pay him a visit. So, you never know, Flopster might just turn up at your doorstep one day feeling thirsty

Aye, ya mean she-males...?

Nah, don't think that is on the menu for the TowerDog..But then, after a case of premium beer who knows?

So, you never know, Flopster might just turn up at your doorstep one day feeling thirsty
In that case ya bring sweet stuff from the old country and the beer is on me...

Company has went and bought a fleet of 777 freights,
When is the delivery date for those 777s?
(Big back-log?)

First one due in March 2009, with another 7 coming over the remainder of the year and the last 2 in 2010.
