A Non-Aviation-Related Post…

November 25th, 2008 · 2 Comments

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Someone made a comment on one of my previous posts…something about wanting to see me get back to “aviation topics.” That comment sort of put a lid on my posting for some reason. I spent some time trying to decide if I needed to make some changes here.

The title of this blog, “Rant Air,” comes from what I do for a living combined with what I do here. I fly airliners for a living, and here I rant and rave about all sorts of things. Some are aviation-related, some are not. It’s been that way since the beginning, and I think it sort of reflects my life. Some of it is aviation-related, and some of it is hobbies. The majority of it, however, involves trying to be a good husband and father.

Since the husband and father thing is seen by my family (thought not as often as I’d like, since I’m away half the week for work), I tend to leave that stuff out of the blog. Not that my home life is uninteresting…just that it might be uninteresting to the people who read this blog who aren’t my family. And besides, my family pretty much hears it all from me directly.

So what you’ll have here, should you continue to frequent this blog, is the stuff that makes a smallish fraction of my life. You’ll see a bit of aviation, a bit of photography, some stuff on recent books I’ve read, a deep thought here and there, and the occasional bitch-and-moan fest.

No changes.

    I like your posts the way they are. It’s your blog, do what you want. Don’t worry about pleasing the masses. We come here for what is here…and what’s not. I can’t say that I enjoyed the drought though, do me a favor and post a little more often if you can.

    I’ve been reading your blog for a few months. I’m sorry I haven’t gotten around to supporting you sooner. I really do like reading it. My wife worked at your former employer, and I’m pursuing a career at your current employer. Right now I’m grinding my ax on the Mighty Beech. I look forward to more from you soon!

    There’s a reason why I have kept up with your blog: because it’s NOT all about airplanes and flying. Just because we’re pilots, doesn’t mean we live one-dimensional lives. That is definately a defining element in who we are, but that is not ALL we are. If you just blogged about aviation 100% of the time, it would be like a banker who gets done with his 9-5 job and comes home and then blogs about interest rates. You live it every day, why do you have to come home and then write about it every day? That would make for a miserable existence.
    Keep doing what your doing, and when something about your job somehow makes it in, than more power to you.
