When it's time to leave the bush for home, and you're dry as a bone and full of insect bites and the roar of the wind o'er the tundra has created a pocket in your eardrums, you don't ask fool questions of the pilot such as "done a 'weight 'n balance' on this thing?" Nope, you want to believe that he can horse it aloft and get you started on your way back to grovestand OJ and Desperate Housewives.

I 'member a flight out of Shishmaref on a Ryan flight where we seemed unnaturally devoted to low-level flightseeing. My friends later told me they referred to the airline as "Dyin' With Ryan".
