Flight over Burning Man

Post by Bachus » Mon Jul 29, 2013 2:59 pm

I am offering a flight for two over Burning Man in my small airplane for the most creative responder to this post.

i will set up as many sock accounts and write as many soliloquy ( solilioquii?) as it takes to do this for my girlfriend, who is turning 40, on the 1st of september, and who i am madly in love with, so i don't mind pulling the major birthday card.


i'll volunteer at the airport, clean planes, put the little stripes on the runway, whatever....with eplaya as my humble witness, this is what i was planning on doing anyway, in order to befriend a pilot, and convince him to do exactly as you proposed.

coinkey-dinky? Maybe....

synchro-coinkey-dinkey and serendippity-do-dah, most certainly.

I think you should just go ahead and pick Simon right away.

Please don't make him create any more socks. We KNOW they'll all stick around long after the flight is history imparting their own special smells to the joint. I really don't think he ever washes them. Ever.

That said, he'd be the greatest company you could have for a flight. I promise you that!

Someone ought to step up and offer this guy an outright bribe, of a candle it dinner for two, along with some fine Trader Joe's wine and a dessert to sweeten the deal of a plane ride over Black Rock City!

To fly the blue stretched over the dust,
high above a patched city built to burn,
on wings promised by the god of drink,
I’ve created this line, today, for you.

But, shit, we all know you should totally hit up Simon.

ok, if simon wasnt going to get the flight for his girlfriend i would post this

this year will be 11 years since my dads sudden death, which i feel immense guilt and grief over, which is a long and personal story. however the last thing he said to me about 4 days before his death was "I don't fly anymore" which broke my heart.
He emigrated to America in 1990 to teach people to fly and lived in Gardnerville (just south of Reno) and taught flying in Tahoe at soar Minden, it was lifelong passion of his and something i shared with him from the age of 8 to 21 (when he emigrated) and one of the things i really wanted to do when i came out to Nv back in 2011 was to have flight to remember him and see the sky he saw sadly the club he taught at was closed in 2011 - a few months before i came over there. so that never happened.

However 2 things make me say give the flight to Simon, for him to give to his lovely GF, first when i met the two of them last year ot was clear just how much they love each other and it would be nice for him to be avble to do that (plus make him clean and push your plane) and second, if she has never flown in a small plane it will be something she will remember forever (i know i still remember my first flight at 8) which is a great thing.

Pilot pilot, burning bright,
please choose Simon for your flight,
soaring through, the blue of sky
It's blow, or blue, and don't ask why,
In the sky, you'll make him happy
on the ground, he'll feel so crappy
He'll take his gal, the one he loves
To ply the wind, and coo like doves
He calls her "pidgeon", she's not a duck
At one mile high, they'll ask for pizza

Good job backing Simon, Grai.

I'd totally vote for you if the offer were prose for a green card. Totally.

Simon, make it Simon. I'm sure he could reciprocate with a backstage pass and maybe some hookers and b**w. Mile high club? Pictures or it didn't happen!

thank you for all of your support, i'm actually a little vehklempt.

and yes graidawg, she has never been in a small plane.....I have actually flown a cesna before, it's like a refridgerator with wings that stays aloft at 90 knots...


it's terrifying, and serene all at the same time.
