Me and Pilots

Honestly.

You put up one profile pic of you flying a plane and suddenly every single pilot from here to Auburn is asking you out.

Today I had an impromptu date with Ryan, a commercially rated, multi engine pilot.  He owns his own twin engine plane.  Impressive.  He also has a fifth wheel.  Color me happy.  And a speedboat.  Pretty amazing.

On paper, he looks exactly like the man for me.  I wasn’t even troubled that I stood a good two inches taller than him.  He was handsome and articulate and very very fun to talk to.

He asked me out of Tuesday.  I love when  man asks you out for the net date while you’re still on a date. Such nice positive feedback.

I’m not sure there was that strong of a connection but I enjoyed his company enough to say yes to a second date.

I’ll have to brush up on my pilot lingo before then.

Missing my adrenaline junkie days

It used to be that every weekend I was up to some adventure – caving in the California caverns crawling through the muck in middle earth:

Flying a single engine Cesna over Napa:

Hiking up mountains and swimming in lakes of questionable origins

And white water river rafting and skinny dipping:

Current cursumstances have put a (temporary) halt to some of my activities. So I am pleased to announce that I’ve managed to procure myself a place on an 82 foot classic schooner that will sail out of San Francisco Bay to the Farallon Islands (indeed, the same Farallon Islands where I intend to go Great White Shark diving)…

Look, can you hear the siren song of the seas calling you?

How about now?

Maybe now?

Maybe NOW?

Well, I’m certainly ready to hop on board THAT! However, what I’m really looking for is THIS:

… because if I’m not going to be with someone who gets my heart racing uncontrollably THIS is the next best thing!

For Jennifer I even came across this:

Nude sailing… although I must admit, the thought of spending a week sailing through the Greek Isles wearing naught but a smile does sound tempting….
