I went up to the cockpit and the Captain, who we also knew, let me "have control" and I turned a couple of degrees left and right. Again in the 80's when flying was a completely different experience from today.
I also did over 100KPM on a pair of skis on the world speed run in Les Arc, when I worked there. That was amazing, I had so much adrenaline pumping through me at the end I had to bury myself in the snow.
Worked in a Chinese restaurant cooking the pancake rolls and the rice in the South of France. Hidden out the back and absolutely not allowed near front of house as it wouldn't have gone down well with the customers if they knew a White guy was preparing the food.
Bought a house over the internet at an auction in New Zealand when we had never even been there or saw the house in the flesh. Family already there and they popped round and said it was OK.
Driven a train too. Metro in Barcelona.

When I was 19 I Lived in a Mk1 Cortina with a slow o/sf puncture over the Downs in Coulsdon for three weeks (1980.- Between bedsits-). Up at 7, pump tyre up, drive to work early, three esses . After work ,drive round to girlfriends for tea then down to Netherne Social club for drinkies then back to car to sleep. Come payday i'd found another bedsit and the novelty had worn off anyway.

I have scored over 100 goals at Wembley. That's Wembley Park, home of football in Wanganui, New Zealand.

I also have five medals from the World Schools' Orienteering Championships, including two silver.

Pretty feeble claim, but I built a house in Honduras... well as part of a Habitat for Humanity team. And we only finished the foundations which was the bloody hard bit.

???? Should have got Extreme Makeovers in - 1 week tops.

I suspect the house is still only the foundations as they are waiting for the strange gringos to come back and finish the job. Person who owns the land is probably pissed off as well.

We get this in Chile. Do gooder gringos. They are in Chile one day and start asking on facebook for voluntary work. What an insult. I'm sure there are people in the USA that could do with some help. Stay there.


And the concept of Ropa America. Middle class gringos sending their used clothes to Latin America. In Chile it comes off the boat, and straight into someones used clothes shop. They cherry pick the best designer labels for themselves and then sell the rest to Chileans. It's a huge scam. 'Oooooh those por Chileans.' There are upwards of 200 Rope America shops in Santiago alone. Good gear mind, being gringo it fits me perfectly so I get branded menswear for about a fiver a pop.

I see your point... it wasn't as fulfilling as I suspected. I have seen photos of the finished house. The occupant was part of the build. It was very emotional working with him and his two kids (his wife had died).

I know what you mean about the do gooders. Doctors and professors were part of the team... I felt pretty inadequate.

But they were good people and definitely contributed sweat equity.
