Good to see the traffic building. Was gone for a while in what was one of the most challenging 10 days of my career - a trial followed by a frantic call from a client to help them out (requiring) me to leave right from the end of the trial to go to London for 5 days. I'm absolutely spent...
Ya know....Its a curious thing. If you look at the N4AA most wanted list which was issued only last week, you will see that 8 out of the top 50 are US possessions. Not one
of them is extraordinarily difficult to get to. They're not marooned in the antarctic or in places where you are likely to be executed for speaking against the wishes of the resident junta.
They're all (save for Swains) controlled by the FWS and/or the military.
FWS seems to have gotten into a habit of demanding quid pro quo to touch any of these islands.
- You come to our island if you agree to pick up trash for a week
- You come to our island if you agree to build several sheds for us
- You come to our island if you agree to take several university personnel and a security detachment with you (at your expense)
Expect more of these items to hit the top 10 as time progresses. Ironic given that several of them have runways long enough and in good enough upkeep to land a 767...
