What on earth is everyone whining about? We're in one of the recreational meccas of the universe, catering to fitness geeks. The angst & (self) righteous indignation over the piece does provide some entertainment value, though, in a 'behold the couch potato jihad' kind of way.
Just as it's your right & mine to disagree with and disparage that with which we disagree. First amendment, and all that. It's comforting, however, to know that you're so sensitive to "disparagement". I'm confident you're sufficiently enlightened that you would never be so crude. I'm sure that indicting the Pilot for its "stupidity" was intended to be constructive and magnanimous.
"...to sort out the recycling, even though he told me he thought it might be useless..."
That about sums up the sustainability jive; shallow posturing to exalt one's virtue.
7:44 a.m. - why would anyone deliberately run over a porcupine? A few winters ago, I stopped to help a neighbor who had inadvertently hit one in her Outback. It got wedged up in between the wheel & the wheelwell. What a gawd awful mess, and no little damage was done to the car & tire.
“It’s not my personality to reach out for help,” Heaton said.
Nor mine; and as the piece points out: many people (perhaps even most of us, I suspect) are loathe to air their dirty laundry to strangers, let alone to a government agency. No easy answers here.
Nice work, Matt.
Awesome perspective from Captain Picard.
I know that YVRA underwent a resurfacing project within the last 5 years that resulted in a closure of a week or so. Clearly, some procedures are more comprehensive/involved than others. And I suspect there are FAA compliance issues; that a field like Bob Adams - which doesn't service the commercial heavy metal - isn't obliged to deal with.
Some, not all. A 4400 foot runway v. HDN's 10,000 feet.
How do you propose the necessary resurfacing take place absent a closure, Harvey? Dazzle us with your knowledge & expertise.
Yikes. Whatever, partner.
