Hemet, California
Getting ready to climb over the San Jacinto Mountains (in background) with the Pacific Air Wave;
cross Palm Springs, California, and head across the Desert to Twentynine Palms, California Marine Combat Base;
swing back west to Great Bear Lake; then return to Hemet in the same day.

Have flown many other planes worldwide.

I have always liked sports that you alone have to control,
or the sport controls you.
It is like business and your life;
either you are in control or out!


JUDO - another, either you are in control or out!
