We Think We're Such Hot Stuff !

We brag about our cruises, boats, passages, etc. Folks who do 2300 mile + passages are held in high esteem. We envy the circumnavigators.

Well, we've got NOTHING on these little guys! How about 3000 miles, non-stop, without GPS, on only one meal?

No sweat for them -- just part of the routine.

Enjoy.

I've done that ... on both Air France and Continental. I prefer Air France because it has free drinks!
