That is a real bummer Klein.
When everyone has chimed in we
should take a vote for the one with the most imaginative recounts of their
adventures. Because we know everyone is telling the truth and none of these are
STORIES that would otherwise be considered beer induced! <G>.

Here in the Big Skies of Montana we have just the opposite sort
problem. On my 180,000 acre ranch I have absolutely no problem with
length or width. My runway is truly vast.
winter's day after a long practice flight a sudden blizzard
blew in. I
was able to set up a slow descent by flying the cannonical
using the compass to a safe touchdown even though I could
nothing. But that is when the real trouble began. I had to
out under the wing for three days because I couldn't find my way back
ranch house in the blizzard. Lost three toes and a finger to
frostbite. And a wandering bull buffalo thought my Extra was a cow and
attempted to mate with it doing considerable damage.
