I was just making fun of funny sounding city names. In Washington, these are my translations of certain cities:You come across as one that isn't reflective of history is all.
Yeah, I just read through that whole list TWICE and I definitely don't see anything linguistically related to the first nations. Fake news!I was just making fun of funny sounding city names. In Washington, these are my translations of certain cities:

You claim you live on Maury Island, and the lie detector determined......... that was a lie.

Yes I'm a nerd and need a life.
Call me back on your 8th trip to the deice pad in 5 legs.Even a 5 leg day in and out of SEA on days with weather at all airports is pretty brutal on us. SEA is quickly becoming the next SFO as far as flow and delays, makes it hard to stay on schedule doing turns in and out. Even on the early morning, and I mean early morning flights we get hit. Nothing like asking if there’s flow at 415am, ATC saying no just to get a flow time at 5am while getting clearance in PUW on the taxi.
I found the morning SFO flying to be largely preferable to the PM shift; pulling into ACV at 0230 was not my idea of a good time after being up most of the day and sitting on our asses in (e.g.) MOD for 2.5 hours.That was my point. SoCal may see some weather this time of year, but nothing like the NW territories. Not even close. We had some busy 25-30 leg 4-days out of LAX but it wasn't unheard of to finish the entire sequence without seeing/flying through a single cloud. "Flow delays" and "edct's" rarely entered our vernacular. Throw in overnights in places like SBP, SBA, CRQ and SAN and it could be positively enjoyable.
SFO trips on the other hand....
