Isn't there a chance of snow in NWA this weekend? Scribe, I'll suffer thru.

Thats a boring drive would be horrible ride

I for one never tire of riding up and down the keys. Martha and I go about every other year. I love it there, but I get to stay in AFB Motels for $38 a night too. That makes it very doable.

Admittedly I've never ridden there, we've always taken a cage.

is that the place on sycamore, or poplar, you order at a window and then go sit down?

It must have gotten better..

I ate there 2 times both 4-6 years ago, terrible.

they confuse spicy with salty.

I hope its better, I like that kind of food.

Hello ladies.

Just did 3 lazy days. One just relocating to Erath, LA from Houma. Less than 2 hour drive. Then two days on an easy job flying for Trunkline Gas. Couldn't fly yesterday, and couldn't fly till 2 today and then just made one trip out and back for their crew change.

Now I am in my hotel in Lafayette and will start 407 training at Flight Safety in the morning. Not having to be in till
7 a.m. is a real treat for a GOM pilot.

60's to 70's here everyday, enjoy the weather up there.
