    A guy started a youtube channel and took that old, niche British term to the masses. I believe his claim to fame is that he mfg'rd "custom" wooden hangars for bespoke suits. Now everything he does is bespoked. Even custom Texas cowboy boots. Then everyone else jumped on the b-wagon. Same with all things ASMR....

    It's the *old* word for custom that's come back into custom since "Kingsman" hammered on it.

    I thought it was not just "old" but "old world". I always took it to be distinctly British, like "colour", "olde", "aluminium", etc.

    Haven't tried it yet, but ASA is supposed to be.

    PLA isn't even "sitting on the dash in the Sun, even in NY" safe.

    My wife and her friend got lost in the badlands of New Mexico today. We called off the search about 15 minutes before sundown. The temp at the time was in the lower 40s with the low tonight expected to be in the mid teens.

    Ok, maybe it was the mediocre trails outside of our property. They went to take a walk after eating, and after an hour I started thinking they might have gone too far, so I called my wifes cell phone. It started ringing while on the kitchen counter. So her friends husband called her cell, and no answer. That worried us enough to get a search started for them.

    After about a mile we found them on the trail leading to the back of our massive 3 acre property. Turns out they had made a wrong turn on the trail and it took them a while to find their way back to the right trail.

    So to add to todays excitement... we did find mountain lion tracks along the trail. They were old, about a week or 10 days maybe, but still, last month a mountain lion was spotted in the area by a few of the neighbors.

    Flew business… highly recommend

    Not yet multi rated :( had to discontinue due to OVC008 -SN BR

    The 787 was insanely quiet (engine/airframe), which causes other issues - we could hear everyone around us. That’s almost more annoying - including the guy that drank too much and made himself sick. (The paramedics met us at the gate sick)

    Ahhh the joys of commercial air travel.

    If you think the 787 is quiet -- try an A380. Not that I will again, since I'm not flying BA again if I can avoid it.

    I think LH pulled out the A380s - don’t give up hope yet. Upper deck economy on an A380 is verrry nice. Not as nice as business class on 787 but still. @kaiser which airline did you use to hop the Atlantic?
    In other not worthy of its own thread news, I no longer rent my hangar.

    Congrats on the hangar!

    I quite liked LH’s Business class but spent most of my time on their 747-800 (back when I traveled lots). I have yet to experience A350 or A380. I did get to ride 1st class (real first class) in an A340-600 from Munich to Chicago once- it was some sort of free upgrade from business. If you can imagine business class as “double” economy, first class is double business class. For example, it was such a large suite that the footrest was an ottoman that was so far away, there was a switch to activate and brings the ottoman closer. I had 4 windows to my seat!
