14 Mile Airstrip

I fear it's going to take a brutal effort of raw will to pay off my debt, earn enough money to buy some land, scrounge all the heavy steel parts for a hanger and move them, build a hanger from the ground up, grade the land so its treeless and not bumpy, finish my plane, make the control lines, rebuild the engine, cover it, and be finally be able to fly something... before I die of terminal illness... therefore... my motto for my 14 mile airstrip:

quoquo modo victoriam
usque ad mortem

"by any means victory
to the death"

I guess it comes down to a simple choice... get busy living, or get busy dying.



Zihuatanejo

...a little place right on the Pacific.... You know what the Mexicans say about the Pacific? They say it has no memory. There’s where I’d like to finish out my life, Red...open a little hotel right on the beach...buy some worthless old boat and fix it up like new...take my guests out charter fishing...
