    Found this site almost by accident, but it feels like I fell into a good one. Gonna do lots of reading and not much posting for awhile. Started flying in the Army in 1965, both helicopters and fixed wing. Did ATC for the FAA for five years, then transferred into the GADO in 1980, retired from the FSDO in 1994. Now I sit at home and look out the window, read a lot, and have done some Long Distance Motorcycle riding in the Iron Butt Ass'n

    Glad to be here, and good to listen to the banter of pilots again.

    Penny is our 8-year old rescue from a puppy mill in LA.

    My motorcycle rides over the past 20 years have mostly been Iron Butt rides. Did all 48 (lower) States in nine days. Did a ride from SDO to JAX in 48 hours. Not so much anymore, what with old guy issues

    FSS ATAs, the only place I remember those was long ago at both KIPL and KDUG, when they had FSSs on field (don't know if IPL still does, but DUG doesn't).

    Gotten a DF steer once for practice, when the old KPHX FSS was doing nothing one quiet night there at Sky Harbor. :)

    I'll see your bet, and raise you Stage I, II and III terminal radar services. :)
