    In fact, I remember on at least one occasion, we did a barrel-roll at about 30,000 feet with a persistent contrail just to see what it would look like...we then asked ATC to allow us to do a 360 degree turn to see our results. From the ground, it must have looked like sky-writing.

    What plane did you fly? There was an SR-71 squardon at Kadena when we were there in the 70's.

    I flew the Canberra. We did the barrel-roll in a short-wing version, the RB-57C. The high-altitude versionI flew was the RB-57F. We replaced the U-2A/B for recce, then the later U-2S replaced our planes.

    I've seen so many contrails from horizon to horizon, straight as a line, I've lost count. They match commercial flight patterns too. Imagine that. It's wild what you can see from 18,670 feet on a clear day at 5% humidity without hallucinogens.

    Stars are real nice too.

    Odd. I'm out in a rural mountainous area, and hardly see any. Last week I saw ones making a distinct "X" pattern. I took a picture of it,...

    Random thought: I want to live by the ocean. I like the mountains and the people, but its not my home town. My home town isn't by the ocean either, but its a couple hours to the Atlantic. Every time I go to the gunshine state of Florida, it is so beautiful and the ocean is amazing. I think, why the heck can't I live here and enjoy it? My wife flip-flops a lot. She was the one that gave me the idea of going to FL to live. Then she started talking about moving up north or northwest cause she likes the cold,...Thats a definite NO. I was born and bred south of the mason-dixon, I was born and bred in the former Capital of The Confederacy. I like my southern comforts too much. If you like it, fine. But I want to stay along the southern coast. I've been looking a lot into Texas too, by the Gulf Coast. I have family on the east coast of FL, and gulf coast of tx. It'll be several years before I can move at all, if at all. But my goal is to get to TX or FL by the ocean. I'm thinking about that, ...so I shared!

    EDITED: I have another year at my current college before I will be seeking a new university (finishing the degree I am working on, and moving to a higher level.). On a positive note, my wife attended college in a town EXTREMELY close to the ocean, so I'm hoping I can attend there as well. It would still be in Virginia like we are now, but it's the ocean :-)

    I lived in California when I entered the Air Force. My stated goal then (1960) was to retire to Florida. When I retired from the AF, I lived in DC as a govt contractor for 23 years, then retired again. THEN, I moved to Florida...love it here.

    Well, it'd help if you'd get out from under a rock

    I like where I am. No snakes, no mosquitos.

    I need to do some study on scat. I think I have a bear hanging around.

    Nope. A constipated Elk. Is that random enough?

    Wrong again. Deer. Darn.

    hahaha,...

    Surprisingly, I see WAY less snakes out here then back home (greater Richmond area.). We used to get HUGE cottonmouths like crazy at my childhood home (old hog farm, had a creek running through it.)So I'm used to snakes and mosquitos
