Like, no pets, no servants, no EB Jr., no family members. That wouldn't be cool.

I don't want him dead for any reason, but you know, just a little light misfortune might be karmically in order, that's all.

With the humidity, carb icing can be a real issue. Wouldn't surprise me, but these stories are always unnerving to read. I was flying with a friend late last year and it was nerve wracking when we were having engine issues. Nothing like being instructed to "be on the lookout for clear patches of land to land on."
