Suwanee River

 John & Rosie the Dolphin at Discovery Bay

15.00 EST 21-10-10

Again managed to borrow a computer in Hardy's restaurant from John - who by coincidence is an Experimental Aircraft Association member and a pilot of landplanes/seaplane, helicopters and gyrocopters.  He used to run the Young Eagles group and sent more than 10 young people solo.  He has a great outlook on life and moved to this part of the US because it has a slower pace of life and nothing to do with the fact that they are the biggest producers of illegal Marajuana!
and it is a shame I cannot stay longer as we have a lot in common.  He said that the purpose was not to teach them to fly but to show them they could do anything but not everything if the wanted to.  A great philosophy I think.  He said that the Oshkosh and Sun & Fun fly in's are definately losing numbers despite what we might read.  He is presently putting a Jet engine in a swamp buggy!  Amazing what they manage to get up to over here - same with aircraft also.  Just build it and fly it seems.  He also told me that around 30% of drivers in this area do not have insurance and therefore drivers who have insure themselves against the uninsured!

Well I could write several pages but I think I had better get on my way to Perry before it gets dark.
