Hopping West Across the Pacific

Leaving Honolulu meant leaving the 50 States – and since I chose United Airlines Flight 154 – I was going to get a whole lot of flying in that day.

Reboarding UA154 heading west from Majuro.

UA 154 is the westbound Island Hopper, going from Honolulu to Majuro to Kwajalein to Kosrae to […]

Japan – I was there.

The end of my Asian trip was Japan – I flew up there from Guam. While I enjoyed my time in Japan, the trip was too brief with too many stops, which made for a trip that, while fun, was exhausting.

Originally I had planned to fly from Guam to Hiroshima, but a mere two […]

Airlines and Airportx XVI

I’m not quite done with my 2013 travels, but barring any surprises, I have no more new airports this year and no more new countries. There were a bumper crop of new airports for me in 2013: LAR, MCO, and SAN, in the States, and outside the states a whopping seven new airports: LSI, KOI, […]

Ummm… this could almost be me

And in case you want a more conventional take, here’s a New York Times article.

Wyoming Memories: Jessica Dubroff

Now that I am actively planning my Wyoming vacation, I’m having a ton of old Wyoming memories replay.

Many of these will seep out over the next few months—I hope you will indulge me.

One of the odder memories revolves around Jessica Dubroff, who was the so-called youngest pilot in America—flying from coast to coast […]
