I don't know what you guys are complaining about. When I was a kid we
couldn't even afford a landing strip we had to land in a farmers field
with the COWS! You don't know what a difficult landing is until you
get a up close to a Moo Cow........ <G>

That's nothing.

Back where I come from, the strip was just like yours, but only a mere
four inches wider than the wheels.

And covered with ice....
