Or, grow up flying with my dad! His C180 & C185 had the long-range 84 gal wing tanks & the 24 gal Flint internal tip tanks. With 104 gal of useable fuel, we could stay up for around 7 hrs with a 45-min reserve - and landing just because I had to whiz wasn't an option. (That happened once & dad was not at all happy about it. He made it perfectly clear that I would not be flying with him on longer missions if it happened again.) Just the thought of not being able to fly with him caused me to develop an iron bladder at an early age!
