Nah, not really on the wagon. Did stay off beer for a while and drank wine.
Back to beer now as I got bad hang-overs from the cheap wine I was drinking.

Will look for ya next time in Punte Cana, but that could be a while.
Tonight I am aviating deep south to Santiago. Nice place it is, good food, good wine and lusty maidens, all in all the town is made for me..

Now flying out of Valhalla, also to lazy to quit!
Aye Valhalla. That is where I expect to go when I uh, go.
Ya got there early? Are all the stories true?

Not to be confused by SKILLS something you sometimes think you have after a couple of beers. That has more to do with LUCK

I'll take luck over skill any day and every day.

Skill is all cool and good, but once in a while ya are jet-lagged and tired and uh, un-skilled..Now what?
You gonne crash or hope for luck or adrenaline?

(Secret answer....Adrenaline builds up starting @ 20 NM final, it will keep ya awake and get ya down in one piece every time.)

TD

Where does the MIA base 757/767 flights go? Domestic, South and Central America + Caribbean of course. How about Europe and Hawaii? Just curious!

By the way! Do you know how they do the pregnancy check in Finland? First they stick a Finlandia vodka bottle up her "yeeha hole". After a short while, they pull it out. If the bottle is empty, yes, then she is pregnant!

Cheers! Empati!

Hmm, that seems like an excellent idea: Interestingly enough, I bought a bottle of Finlandia in San Salvador today, $9.00. Now that I am prepared I can travel around offering pregnancy testing.

All of the above, except Hawaii.
Plenty of domestic stuff, which I shy away from this time of the year. One could end up in Boston, Chicago, New York or other cold places. (It is known to God and to Mankind that the old dog does not perform well in cold climes. He does it best between palmtrees and in sunshine)

Plenty of South America including "Deep South", Santiago, Sao Paulo, Rio, etc. Also Bolivia, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru and such.
What goes on down there, during the lay-overs and between the sheets would make a sailor blush, trust you me....

(Hint, 1 hour with Miss Brazil can be had for 120 roses..)

So, uh back on subject, where does the twin-Boings fly out of MIA...?

Many fun places.
Also expensive European towns, Paris and Madrid, been to both recently, but with the US dollar in the toilet one can barely afford a ham and cheese sandwich and not at all dinner and drinks in town...

Hint to frozen Scandimen: Take yer next vacation in Santa Cruz, Bolivia and don't bring the old lady. (Ya will thank me for the tips, but no need to send money, just drop a case of beer on my doorstep and don't spread the word, that place is pristine and so is the local wildlife..)

Thumbs up TD



I knew it!! The vikings traveled farther south than New Foundland. I saw evidence of tall blond men with beard in Cancun, dated before Colombus.

But now I might find evidence in South America, of recent activities, not unlike the vikings, of modern norsemen. From your testemony it seems like we are greeted with open arms, whererever we go!

Forget Amundsen and Heyerdahl, TD got more experience of old cultures than both of them put together.
__________

Talked to a Continental Airlines jockey on a OSL lay-over. He brought boxes of tuna to avoid extremely expensive norwegian dinner.
I fully understand! $

Case of beer in the mail!

Cheers, Empati!

....hate tuna, soooo...

I usually bring a bag of MRP (Meal Re-Placement).
Usually "Fresh Chocolate".
Usually mixed with some milk bought at one of the Statoil's at OSL.
(At 17 NKr / liter!!! Who said petrol is expensive?!!?)

Noggie prices drive me nuts!!

73 NKr for a ½liter of Guiness!!! I neeeed Guiness, so being without it is not an option!
On the other hand, they (Sir Winston) offered free WLAN, so I was a pretty happy camper anyway!

Guttn,
I won't be in OSL this weekend, so the mini-mini-bash will have to wait!!

Aye, a box of tuna: that would be cat-food, not for human consumption...

Now in Paris, did not go out wining and dining today, instead went to the local frogmarket and picked up some ham and cheese, n'bread and stuff.
Dinner in the crew lounge with the aging beauties we call F/As...
(Aye the good old days are over, but perhaps I have mentioned that before?)

As for a blond influence in the deep south: As should be, spread the good seeds and let Vikingpower rule. Surely the offspring will be handsome, strong and witty just like the masterdonor...

From your testemony it seems like we are greeted with open arms, wherever we go
Aye, better than that son, much better...

An2, gotcha! Too bad, but we had a minibash anyways . Had a couple of colleagues who weren`t exactly negative to a meet and greet, but no worries. There is always a bash somewhere

Guttn,

Good to hear, you didn't have to suffer "single-drinking" then!

I did have, although be it very very briefly, bad feelings about leaving you stranded at OSL without a drinking buddy!

Next time maybe?!

An2, you`re never without a drinking buddy or three if you stroll down to the hotel bar around 11p.m.

Next time around for sure

TD, you need to get your folks at AA to start flying to OSL. The only airline flying between the US (EWR) and the homeland of the vikings is Continental with a 757-200 (or is it a 300...?): Personally I think it`s [email protected] to have to go somewhere in Europe for a connecting flight to the US (with the exemption of said airline of course )

I am all for AA flying to OSL, especially from MIA, but don't see it happen anytime soon. Them beancounters look at yield only and if an airframe can make more dough flying from Kansas City to Disneyland, that is where the flight go.

Not many Yanks wanne go on vacation to Norway, and those who do look for the lowest fare rather than non-stop. and in many cases Air Frog or KLM will sell the cheap ticket with a stop in their hub.

My butt is in Dallas right now, headed to Frog Town this afternoon. Anybody else laying over there tomorrow? If so take contact and we shall go to town

(Flaps 40, perhaps ya need a break from hubby and would like to explore new things in Paris? If so, I may be of warm and willing assistance..)

Here in Norway it seems that vacationing in the US is back in business and growing. Didn`t Towerair fly to OSL (GEN back in the day) from MIA with a 74? We`ll see what the future brings, but I hope someone will fly OSL to Florida before long

Frog Town huh.... me thinks they`re all a bunch of tadpoles

Now in Frogland trying to escape the cold...

Yeah, Tower Air flew to Norway, Finland and Sweden for a while but before my time. I started with that firm in 94 and ended 2000.
Did the flights to Tel Aviv and Athens and other places. (But did not do it Greek style.)

So, uh yeah service is surely needed to Florida and it would be a good deal for Scandinavians with the dollar now in the toilet.
In fact you boys ought to come over here and buy property...Half plice special for you my fliend, today only...

Seriously, a buyers market it is.

I know... I`ve taken a peek at it, and if I could, I would...

But for the time being I`ll have to make do with vacationtime in the sun. Haven`t decided yet, but MIA may be unsafe in May
