General Discussion / Re: Doug and Brad finally meet

What's mind-blowing is that you guys have been doing this all these years without having actually met face-to face. Shows you where technology is these days I guess. Thanks to all of you. You have created something to be very proud of.

I feel guilty when our kids come down to visit from Rainier, Oregon and face a 10 hour ride home. I get over it real quick, though. Have dinner, binge watch some Hulu and they call...we're home!

Way cool you guys can get together like that.

Thanks, Dieter. Nick emailed me and we'll hopefully have this sorted out soon.

Yeah Jeff, you're probably right. At least it's the wrong password.

Hopefully somebody can help me out here. I've had an account with ORBX for like, 12 years. Same display name, jsapair, and same password, Brdmkr2q1. Email is Now all of a sudden I don't exist. Password and user name don't match, yada yada. So I try to start a new account under my wife's name. Name already exists. Really? There's another theresa_yolton out there? Another T_Yolt? My wife wouldn't know a flight sim if it smacked her in the face.

Something's hosed up. I know one of you admins have dealt successfully with Nick Cooper in the past...Brad, maybe? I can't get in there, obviously. Could somebody contact ORBX on my behalf and have them contact me at:

I'd sure appreciate it.

Thanks Bernie and Steve. As an RTMM user for many years my OZx stuff was 'grandfathered in', more or less. During the transition to the new libraries I only paid attention to the OZx, yes/no stipulation and had no problems. I'll pay close attention this time.

Wow, that is gorgeous! I'm with Norm though. I'd wreck it on take-off. UP! NO DOWN! NO SIDEWAYS! YIKES! WE'RE GOING DOWN! MAYDAY! MAYDAY!

Look Martha! There's a drunk helicopter pilot trying to land in our yard.
How do you know he's drunk. honey?
Well look at the way he's flying!

Yep, that's me.

Well, that's one I can cross off my 'need to DL' list. ORBX forums has decided that the account I've had for 12 years or so no longer exists. Have to create a new account I guess. Too much valuable info there when you need it to let it just go by.
                            Thanks guys

Are they still around or available? All I get is 404 errors wherever I go.


Hey Jeff. I got a bridge I'll sell 'ya. Cheap. Inquire within.

Nice shots. Now that you've got your feet wet you'll have to venture a little farther from home...into the vast hinterlands, where men are men and sheep are nervous. Looking forward to you sharing your future sojourns with us. And welcome aboard.

Thank you, thank you. It's a great feeling to be clawing my way back to daylight. We've got a place in escrow. A beautiful 1.56 acre lot in a canyon setting with an older, well-maintained mobile on it. No visible neighbors and you can hear a nearby creek running from the deck. 2800' elevation. Gotta get out of this place at 4600' before we freeze to death. Phone service is iffy, though. Will have to get internet from one of those line-of-sight satellite companies.

Got my new hot-rod PC build but it has no CD/DVD burner. Ordered an external one so I can install the sim. Where I'm renting now has insane DL speeds...18 while I'm waiting (UPS won't chain up to deliver, apparently), I'm DL'ing the RTMM libraries, sceneries, Tongass, etc. Managed to save my password book so I've recovered my payware C185, AS Beaver, ASN. My DL folder looks like the Library of Congress. But I'll be ready to start installing. Can hardly wait to tell you all when I'm airborne again.

New computer, new FSX install, new everything, and now new 'Read me's?" Sorely needed as we all know. That must have been a project in itself. I might even read one now...nahhh.

Hi, friends. Had a minute where I could check in personally. Thanks for all your well wishes for the loss of my house and all in the Camp Fire. I can honestly say I am thankful we escaped with our lives. There was no warning, no reverse 911 call, no nothing. Big explosions and then flames. Wind driven flames from across a canyon a mile away. The explosions were neighbor's propane tanks exploding. I initially thought a plane crashed near by. My son happened to be visiting and they were staying in my travel trailer. He comes in the house and says, "Dad, this is bad, it's time to go."

He was right. As we were hooking my travel trailer up to his truck, embers landed in the yard across the street and started that house on fire. The house next to that one erupted in flames. Then the church next to that. The air was a sheer curtain of red, wind-driven embers. Distant propane tank explosions were like bombs or mortars going off. Thick, choking, black and grey smoke was rolling in waves across the ground making visibility a real challenge. 

We pulled into traffic going north. We're on the upper end of Magalia. People in Paradise would naturally go south. It was a cluster-f**ck no matter which way you went. Our two vehicles were low on gas so we pulled over at some point. It was total chaos. People driving on the wrong side of the road. Panic when there was no need for panic. Total gridlock no matter what or where you went.

But for those who chose the southern route out of Paradise, it was not only total gridlock, the flames  overtook  them. Huge, billowing black clouds with flames hundreds of feet high, and wind-driven. The flames overtook those people fleeing south 'cause the traffic was gridlocked. I heard about people fleeing burning cars with their hair on fire.
Got an email alert today that said I had 24 hrs to go in and check my property. Really. Thank you so very much. I'm 80 miles away in frozen conditions at 4600' elevation and you're giving me 24 hours to get to what was my life for the last 40 years and that's it? I'm not going. I don't think my burnt stuff will be going anywhere anytime soon.
Still trying to come to grips with this, without much luck, actually. I do know that I am much more fortunate than others...even thousands of others. Not a real good reason for feeling fortunate, though.

Thanks for your prayers and support. Means a lot to me.
