Unfortunately the only one I haven't said is the last one while flying.  Guess I better stop while I am ahead.  Great post martin, thanks.

Done and done.  They say there are two types of helicopter pilots.  Those that have had crashed, and those that will.  I am in the second category right now.  The good pilots walk away to try again.  That is what I am hoping to do when my time comes.  Just a matter of time, but I will say, if I die that way, at least I went doing what I love, and with a bang.
