Tom – Tom adventures

Well here I am (me blogy postress) posting Tom Horne’s colorful Trans-Atlantic crossing adventure as he deftly submits blogs from Quebeque, Canada, Goose Bay, Labrador, Nuuk, Greenland, and Reykjavik, Iceland.

I’m not moderating–mind you–just monitoring and looking for additional links, and embedding Google Maps and such; the stuff reserved for lowly blogy deck-hands on such a spectacular ocean voyage.

But let’s not digress. It’s not just one Tom but two Toms (Haines and Horne) who have answered the Trans-Atlantic Sirens.

Call me jealous, but, for once, I too would like to put on a Gumby suit, and sit behind the controls of a PC-12, or a TBM 700 or 850, and fly it across the Atlantic to Europe. But nooo, I’d have to start at the bottom…fly a souped-up Cessna 172 with extra fuel tanks in the cabin, shivering above the chilly waves…oh well, a girl can dream. My day may come.

Meanwhile, why not checkout “the Toms’ stories.” Don’t be envious like me–it’s really great reading. Here are the links, and bon voyage:
