Listen guys,-I tried 'Sanity' for a brief time....It was awful !
-Too many rules, and someone always wants you to explain why you did,what you did..as if you owe them an explanation !
Our way is much better.....Now they just smile 'n say "oh that crazy (add your name here), and walk away shaking their heads..

Sanity is over rated. I'm sure that my neighbors all refer to me as "That crazy airplane guy."

Here are a few of the things that help me cope with reality.

Is it me or is the ratio of pictures of Talley sleeping and Tally actually awake and moving very lopsided?!

Maybe it's Talley's way of coping with Tom's lack of sanity?

People are interesting....One of my local Airports has been in existence since 1942..-Harford County Air...
They survived the slump of the past decade, and are now in a position to expand.
Airplanes have been flying there constantly...
The Race horse "Norther Dancer" was born and raised 1 mile from the very end of the active runway...The owners of that horse farm oppose the runway expansion, because of "increased air traffic, the inclusion of smaller jets, now, and get this; the noise may 'spook' the animals"...
I spent four hours at the end of the runway, watching skydivers' aircraft activity,and neither cattle, horses,nor pets even look up, as the aircraft arrive or depart.
The county council pooh-poohed the complaint,stating the "noise may have benefitted Northern Dancer- it certainly seemed to cause him no harm".
Case closed.

Seems only natural to me, as more airports shut down, those that are left will see some more traffic. Concentrated hots spots of activity, if you will.

I looked into renting hangar space here, 5 years ago. I was told in no uncertain terms the Little River Airport, Mendocino county, California, IS NOT INTERESTED in any growth , whatsoever. They WERE interested in taking FAA funds to repave the 6000 ft runway and taxi ways and did. Did I mention there's no fuel?

This is tourist area, but the number one industry is dope. I have a hard time understanding apparent support for one and not the other.

We do have lot of wildlife and forest, here. The deer and birds provide my wife and I with a lot of enjoyment/relaxation. We have 8-10 deer here everyday, along with doves, jays, Band-tail pigeons and several smaller birds. We get huge flocks of Canada geese, down at the shore. Had a bear sniffing around this past winter.

I'm going to Massey Aerodrome (Md-1) today, for the chili fest. Grass runway, no fence, and smiling people......and Av gas.

A place where anyone who enjoys airplanes,can enjoy airplanes.

No one there interrogates you, believing you're a terrorist, unless you prove otherwise.......Then they shoot you.
