Was playing around with Portrait Mode on my iPhone using my dog, Buddy, as my subject. Love it! #DogsOfInstagram #DogsLife
I found an original runway layout concept for O’Hare. And it’s brilliant. It’s basically 5 parallel runways arranged in a pinwheel. This layout allows for minimal taxiing on the ground. In some respect, Denver went for the modern version of this with the “new” DIA’s runway layout. This version does have its drawbacks, notably there would probably be a maximum number of takeoffs and landings you could get with this configuration. In some respects this is where Denver’s version is superior, as their version is parallel runways of parallel runways, which maximizes the number of takeoffs and landings you can have while still minimizing how much taxiing planes do on the ground.
This guy woke up looking like he had a rough night of partying…lol. #DogsOfInstagram
I think I might follow too many aviation related things on to be getting this ad…
Oh Facebook, you really are barking up the wrong tree here…
Oh good grief Charlie Brown. If we only built things in this city based on this mentality, then we’d basically never build another restaurant or store or lots of things! And the guys argument has major fallacy to it. He basically assumes that everyone in this city has already spent the maximum of their “disposable income” every month & TopGolf will take money from other things, which actually isn’t true. This city has a lack of entertainment venues & TopGolf is unlike anything in this city (or near by). Not to mention, people will travel from all over the state (and maybe parts of other states) to go to TopGolf. I don’t understand sometimes this city and states aversion to growth, building, & trying new things. Former NM Territorial Governor Lee Wallace said “All calculations based on experience elsewhere, fail in New Mexico.” and sadly with this type of mentality some people have, it will continue to be true!
Go home @Twitter, you’re drunk…
Our office Yoda got a facelift for Halloween & it’s just a tad bit creepy…
OMG, these Deep Fried Brussel Sprouts @BosqueBrewingCo’s San Mateo location today were KILLER! If these were a permanent option, I’d totally do them a lot! Please Bosque, think about keeping these full time! Please! (at Bosque Brewing Co.)
This is our crew of misfits (and a few pilots too) taken after lunch yesterday. Glad I get to do life with these people, even if it’s only for 10 to 12 days a year… #BalloonFiesta #CrewLife
Not surprised. When it started raining on the field, we made the decision to bail. Another year in the books. Great to see everyone again & have a social life for 10 days. Now if you’ll excuse me, much like a bear, I need to hibernate… #BalloonFiesta (at Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta)
I know I was stupidly tired, but why I couldn’t I sleep like this all week!
#NMWx: It’s kinda crazy that in the next 36 hours, we are gonna drop 35° from a high today of 71° to a low on Monday of 36°. Guess fall this year is gonna be ~2 weeks long…
#BalloonFiesta: Today was a great day! The winds ended up cooperating, even if the traffic didn’t. We (and everyone else) ended up in Corrales & it was gridlocked pretty much. (at Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta)
#BalloonFiesta: A lion is chasing our #zebra! (Zebras are our launch directors. They tell us when we can go cold, go hot, & launch). (at Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta)
#BalloonFiesta: #DawnPatrol (at Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta)
The things I do for good coffee… #PiñonCoffee @NMPinonCoffee (at Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta)
#BalloonFiesta: It’s funny, for a day we thought was gonna be crap, it actually turned out amazing! Got to see some special shapes while we figured out what we were doing, the lasers were fun at briefing, & got to see the #drone Fiesta is using up close and personal. Plus both of our balloons flew & it was a great day (even if neither scored). (at Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta)
Guess who else is in town for #BalloonFiesta? #GoogleStreetView. Caught them as I was on my way to meet my group for lunch… (at Albuquerque, New Mexico)
The #NewMexicoTrue balloon taking off… (at Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta)
