    As I flew that little Cessna, a few things occurred to me. First, I remembered how infrequent it was that I flew something that small. Second, that I was much more used to being behind the controls...

    You're probably asking "what does that mean?" The truth is, your guess would be as good as mine.

    His name was José. That was about all my limited Spanish could make out, and to be honest, I was pretty impressed with myself that I could figure out even that much.

    He listened to Lisa try to...

    Thanks to Lisa's people skills, and I assume her good credit, we rented a plane to get us back to Denver, a King Air which had lots of power to get us over the mountains. I admit that I got a little...
