I don't know how you guys feel about flying (Dave G. not included ) but it scares the piss out of me and I have to fly to NYC on friday for work. I went and got something to put me to sleep, hopefully I'll zone and wake up as we are touching down in Newark. Been nice knowing you guys! :) I hope I get to see the desert again.

dramamine always puts me to sleep and helps sickness. I am not afraid of flying, but i get sick just thinking about it.

If it were nausea I would be able to handle it but my anxiety kicks in and is no bueno. I guess I'm a bit of a control freak, if I were flying the plane (and properly trained to do so) I have a feeling I'd be fine.

Ha, Ha, You wouldn't want to sit next to Me on a plane then! I like to sit by the wing so I can watch it flex..... It's amazing how far those suckers bend.......

Chris,

I'm with Brian on this one... That is neat to watch them flex like that!
If not, just have a few drinks before you leave to "take the edge off".
Its always worked for friends of mine.

Dezertchick.....I take it you never saw the movie "Alive." The plane hit the mountian as they were pulling up and the rear of the plane was ripped off. Movie was based on a true story.

RE: "I don't know how you guys feel about flying (Dave G. not included ) "

Flying scares the holy crap out of me. That's why I do it.

It's such a rush to cheat death! ;-)

Sit near the front of the plane. Of all plane crashes the few survivors are usually in the first 10 rows. If you want to knock yourself out for the flight get some ambien

I do, therefore I am.

After reading all of our posts here (mine included) we all sound like a bunch of scared whining b!tches! Like trying to find the best place to sit in case of a crash. You know, you have a better chance of crashing and dieing on the way to the airport in the car than on the plane! We are in a "not guts no glory" sport and then we all whine about flying, what a joke!
