Saturday...prior to "A loooooong Day" I flew an Orlando turn. An interview was arranged as soon as I stepped out of Canadian customs with "Mike." He wanted to write an article on deicing for one of the "larger Chinese newspaper outside of China."
He wanted pictures as well so I took him up to flight planning for the interview and back drop. Some of the pics showed Captain Doug is encountering "wear and tear" especially after a 4:00 a.m wake up and with "things" going on. A vacation is in order! :)
Mike asked some great researched questions. Actually he is pursuing the Cathay pacific pilot cadet program.

I emailed Captain Laval St. Germain today and gave him a "thumbs up."
Here's his website....Captain Laval It sure makes you realize you've done little compared to these "extreme" people. I do realize most out there have their own mountains to climb and for many it's equivalent to an Everest trek. It made me realize I better get going with mine.
.... Ladies be forewarned, this guy has several shots with his shirt off and YES he is ripped! Funny how motivated people like their pictures taken. :)
Speaking of motivation...
Here's a pic a "frequent commenter" sent to liven my spirits. She sensed Captain Doug had a long winter....
It sure says spring is around the corner. Having said that...we've always depended on Groundhog day here in North America. We rely on Wiarton "Willie" in Ontario, Shubenacadie "Sam" in Nova Scotia, "Woodstock Wille" in Illinois and "Punxsutawney Phil" in Pennsylvania.
RRRoll up the Rim
But forget about those pudgy critters! Here in Canada we know spring is around the corner with "Roll Up The Rim." I know most of you folks south of the border don't have the luxury of this coffee, but we Canadians are addicted to it. Yes, I will admit to my craving.
Roll up the rim "season" means we can win prizes...for those not in the know. :)
Today, Captain Doug won a coffee....things are looking up! :)
