As a mortal, i would have crawled under the covers and later begged a football fin from someone on the beach......

Wow. Two round-trips to Turkey is a lot of frequent flyer miles.

Josh, that sucks. If you had to do it again, would you have stuck with less than perfect fins and perhaps not have been so balanced but with a ton more acuity, energy and an extra thousand bucks in ticket savings?

ouch, been there done that, forgetting stuff.

every little thing adds up. fins aren't a little thing. all the extra static adjustments, and on the water decisions are key as well.

friend of mine got his car broken into just outside of his bakery a while back. had his wallet and check book stolen. both i and his wife said, "that'll learn ya." he's got about 7500 square feet of bakery in which to hide his personal stuff, right?

my nearly OCD retired Sargent-Major takes all day to pack for his month long trips to bonaire. i make fun of him a bit about the all day packing thing.

just today i brain farted, but only had to burn an extra couple gallons of fuel and 30 minutes. stuff happens. good for you that you corrected the problem in a way that suited you. thanks very much for sharing your very large slice of humble pie.

And I thought Outcast was the king of the "moronathon"! Wink
Wow did you build a shelter in the airport?

Really amazing when you think about modern air travel. Can you imagine trying to explain what you did to Christopher Columbus!!

Like Outcast said "That's why you da' man!"
