Wow. It was great. It was a beautiful day. The conditions were close to
ideal. The pilot did the take off and then handed the controls over to
me. We headed out to Niagara on the Lake, across the Niagara River to
the American side, then looped around over to St. Catharines and back to
the airport. The pilot took the controls for the landing.

It was a blast. Best birthday present ever. In late August I get to
enjoy my Christmas present, a flight in a Harvard trainer.

I picked up the information package for flying lessons. I am seriously
considering getting a recreational license. It is affordable.

Glad you enjoyed it. Next time out they may let you do the takeoff and
closer to landing.

My wife and I talked about it and she is amenable to me pursuing the
license. It would cost about $6000 for a recreational license. That
would limit me to single engine planes with seating for no more than 4
but with no more than one passenger, day time only and in Canada only.
My friend had helped to arrange it and we stopped by for a drink this
afternoon. He is thinking of getting his medical and getting his
license back. He was a commercial airline pilot and had thousands and
thousands of hours of flight time logged,including about 18,000 hours in
a 777. We figure we could split on the cost of a rental and go flying
about once a month.

Bruce, try asking her for a hamburger. lol

note: I watched a Modern Marvels episode early this morning (2-3am) and
thought you would have liked this one. The story of the meat packing
industry - history and current.

Congrats. My guess is that within a decade, all inter-island travel in Hawaii will be by electric aircraft. For trainer aircraft, it's going to be a no-brainer.

Linda McCartney hamburgers are really good and not as expensive as
Beyond Meat. My wife and I are always amenable to having one of those

I'll have to look for that one cause I'm bored with the foods I'm buying/eating. 16 minutes seems a bit too long to be cooking a TVP burger.

I've flown many times with a friend who owns over a dozen single engine
planes.┬* I was very surprised the first time how easy it is to fly.┬*
Taking off, landing, and navigation are another matter.┬* It is a lot of fun!

I'd assume many locals down the own boats.

That sounds reasonable. I think a lot of folks do own boats. Most of the locals own small kine boats for fishing. They don't travel much between islands. I don't know why. Maybe it's dangerous. The rich guys own the bigger crafts. I suppose they travel between islands. I'd like to see a ferry system between the islands. That doesn't seem to be in the cards.

I've always wanted to visit Hawaii, but I've heard it's far too
commercialized now... living there, is that true, in your opinion? Does
it depend on the island?

Side note, I once saw a car on the mainland (Ohio) with a Hawaii plate
(with valid tags). That was kind of a trippy thing to see... it took me
a minute to process it. I suppose they liked it enough that they had it
shipped up, and haven't bothered to register it up here with a valid
plate yet since their sticker is still good. Technically not legal if
you've moved, however. I wonder how a police officer would react to that.

The impression that I always got from Hawai'i was that there's never any money for anything. Do all gains come from Tourism or fishing. If so, its kind of tough to immediately initiate new infrastructure of the kind that you see in Paris, London or New York.

Beats me how the money goes around here. The most important part is securing a homestead and maintaining it. If you can do that, things are a lot easier. If you can secure a state job, things get a lot easier. For older folks with homes and income, this ain't a bad gig at all. For the kids, things are a lot sketchier. For my wife and I, our main concern is securing a future on this rock for our kids and their kids. I suppose that's the way it is with a lot of people here.

Aruba isn't exorbitantly expensive. It's cheaper to live there than Manhattan
or San Francisco. We've looked into it. June-Sept/Oct is off season. We've
looked into it because It would be nice to live in Puerto Rico Nov. through
May, then Aruba during hurricane season. You can get a nice Airbnb for $1K
a month.
