Dude. Flying for 5 hours non stop is a long freaking time. 180 knot head wind at one time. I think by the first 1/4 of the flight we ran out of things to talk about.


Anyways, Did phrantic buy that 3T yet?

I guess you won't be volunteering for any routes to Australia, eh? :)

Lots of discussions you could use from this thread.

My daughter flew Dallas to Sydney nonstop in 2019 - almost 17 hours. In coach.

You'd think with DougRNS, alone in the office today, allegedly, he might post a selfie of himself running the show from the boss's desk.

Sucks everywhere.

I have a 5 hour flight at the end of the month. The consolation is the travel ends at a boat dock.

St. Thomas for a week of sailing.

We are also in seats 1A and 1B so there is that comfort.

DougRNS 01-03-22 08:45 PM

This could have been on my playlist.

Velo Vol 01-03-22 08:47 PM

Speaking of which, look what's on YouTube

Oh, excellent! What are you chartering?

53’ crewed cat.

A friend of ours will be 65 this month, and she and her husband invited us and two other couples to be her guests. They normally bareboat, but she wanted a crew to serve us for this trip. All we have to do is get there. Got our tickets with points, so cheap trip for us.

I think there's confusing information out there - "Fuel The Workout", for example - which leads people to think that they have to fuel a casual 30 mile Z1/Z2 ride like a 2 hr Sweet Spot session. Last year, a noob asked about what kind of sports drink he should have, now that he was up to 30 minute sessions. I've been riding long enough to know that I can go 1 1/2 hours with no breakfast, just coffee, or 3 hours with breakfast, but if I go longer than that, or do a big, half hour or longer climb, I need to add some calories.

I still haven't figured out Zwifting, though. Because there's no stopping and no real coasting, the workout sessions tend to be a lot more intense. That, and I'm doing races and structured workouts. AND I'm generally Zwifting in the evening about the time I'm running out of lunch. So I keep a couple gels next to the trainer and sometime have one.

I've done 100 mile rides on nothing more than 3 bottles of water in July, with decent finish times. I rarely eat on a ride. I think a lot of this "need to eat" mentality is marketing from the sport food manufacturers. I'm trying to burn calories, you know, Fat. The last thing I need is to train my brain that I will feed it during exercise if it says it's hungry.

They were SO MUCH better than storebought red raspberries, but rather than providing a single big harvest, they tended to provide a handful a day for a couple weeks. So my big sister and I used to forage for them while also looking for the asparagus that had been planted many years before by the previous owner and which had spread considerably.

I'd be leery of picking and eating fruit along a road. Mostly where I grew up it would be some farmer's crop.

We had the same with wild strawberries. You can smell them when they're ripe. They're small, and grow low to the ground, and delicious.

5 is OK. That's two movies and a meal. Probably a beer or two depending on what's at the other end.
12 is OK. Thats a movie, a meal, another movie or two, a beer, a sleep and another meal.

Somewhere in between is flight hell where you can't take any more movies and it's too short to sleep.
