    MPEG Streamclip. Free program that will allow you to compress it when exporting.

    I'm jealous! I got to fly two 206's from Arkadelphia to TXK last year. Definitely more fun that the Cessna 172's that I've got most of my hours in! I wish helicopters were as affordable to fly as planes, I'd love to get all my ratings in one.

    I've only flown lately in Southwest planes. I did stay in a Holiday Express once though.

    At least you pick the good airline to fly. I think everyone should take at least a discovery flight to feel the controls. It's a whole new kind of freedom

    I learned how to fly in a '49 Ercoupe. Not the most sophisticated aircraft out there. :lol3 Went from that to 152's, 172's, and on up to Lear 24's and Citation 3's.

    Now I do all my flight at low level, two wheels down.

    Well thanks for putting me to shame :( I'd like to fly a Lear, that could be a ways off though. A King Air or Pilatus PC12 is my dream rig, as "uncool" as they may be.

    Summit up in Bville keeps a really nice Ercoupe. I'd like to fly it sometime

    Elvis 70: Congratulations on the upgrade in the 407.:clap. I also think the seats are much more comfortable than the 206. Have fun with your new ride and fly safe.

    Today I trailered in a yard of topsoil amd a yard of mushroom compost for my raised bed garden. Unloaded it by hand in the pouring rain. Finally finished and went into the house to dry off so I could go to the shop to build a table for Vic. Walked outside and the weather had cleared and the sun was shining. :huh Guess I should have planned my workday in reverse. :fpalm

    Don't be too impressed. The Lears and Citations were done as a right seater on maint check rides. I was just there in case something went bad wrong so they'd have somebody to blame it on. :lol3

    My fave plane to fly is a Long-Eze. Canard planes are fun.:clap

    The Ozark Smokehouse was closed, when we went through there on our way to the Apple Festival. Is it open again?

    +1 to that. I just downloaded Google's new navigation app for the iPhone and all I can say is watch out Garmin. If it was GPS based instead of cell tower based, I could see no reason to have a Garmin at all. So much better.
