Never used a slide rule but was issued one of these to calculate aviation related things in the cockpit. We called it a whiz wheel and would calculate ground speed, fuel usage, etc.

I might take a little jaunt into CA from around Parker up towards Vegas, but that'll probably be right on or around Thanksgiving Day. I'll send you a link to my SPOT if you're interested in trying to find a crazy guy turkey hunting in the Mojave Desert.
