Flowers of the tropics

Recommended Posts

Just a few pictures that have absolutely nothing to do with flying or ProPilot (and, pray tell, who still has ProPilot installed on their computer?)These wonderful orchids are cattleya (probably Laeliocattleya valencia)

Beautiful flowers, Luis! http://www.handykult.de/plaudersmilies.de/...y/xyxthumbs.gifBetween the orchids and all the fruit that grows so well there, you're obvioulsy living in a wonderful place to be a gardener.Gardening was a hobby of mine until I became disabled. The emphasis was on roses and radishes, which seems a strange combination. :-)[table][tr][td valign=top]http://www.avsim.com/other/usaribbon.gif[/td][td valign=center]Bob "FlyBert" StilesAVSIM Moderator[/b][/td][/tr][/table]"Don't stall on me, I have to soar!"~Richard Harvey, 1/21/2003

Thanks, Bob. Given the choice, I would take the radishes, but that is just my stomach talking. I guess that flowers are food for the soul.I shall give it another try.This is an anthurium, a strange and wonderful flowerhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/87830.jpgThe heliconia is a spectacular type. What was nature thinking?http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/87831.jpgThere are dozens of different bromeliads and agaves scattered about. Please ignore the clothesline and just appreciate the flowers, thanks.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/87832.jpgBest regards.Luis

How can you go hiking up a mountain in that heat, Dan? I would most likely pass out after a few minutes. You must be in great shape.Best regards.Luis

> You must be in great shape.Oh, no, I don't think so. Definitely NO.>How can you go hiking up a mountain in that heat, Dan?> I would most likely pass out after a few minutes. The secret is, there are places with trees around here. :-)And, it's monsoon season. The entire hike ( 40 minutes up, 20 down) took place under cloud cover. With lightning and thunder echoing all around. Probably about 80 degrees at the starting elevation of 6800 ft. A "bit" cooler at 7500.The trailhead, just off Walker Road, a "near 4wd road" which winds through an old gold mining area.All of these mountains were totally clearcut in the 1880's for mining timber.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/88365.jpgOn the trail. There are places with "large" mountain and valley views. You can see the trail is not used a lot. :-)http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/88366.jpg

Are the Porkster and I the last two people in the world with ProPilot? Come on, Doc, say it isn't so? Make this a three-member exclusive club!Or, shall we have to ask Larry to dig his copy up from where he buried it in his yard?Best regards.Luisstill has ProPilot... but, hasn't turned that computer on in about a month!

Brother Luis:I still have Pro Pilot 99 on my #2 network machine here at Casa Doc. And the Logitech Digital joystick waits. All I have to do is switch the KVM over to #2 and off I go, at the helm of the CJ to shoot approaches into MAF. Most usually they are dead stick. In the clag. What fun!I still have MS Train Sim on the Electron Leviathan. But I have not fired it up since coming back from Washington DC last summer and the lunch with Meekal. After you have run a real AEM7 up the North East Corridor, the simulator is a distant second. I have accumulated many interesting downloads for it. They too will remain until one of my railroad locomotive horn collecting friends stops by with a bunch of blank CDs. Then off goes Train Sim.I never got the beta for PP2000 so I suffer with 99. No great loss. It's still fine in my book.Doc Bryant

I'm a little late coming to this thread, but better late than never.Luis, lovely flowers!! I'm trying to get some sort of small garden established on my back patio with only minimal success. Still I have two beautiful hibiscus plants, a mandevilla which is finally starting to give me some pretty pink flowers and a climbing jasmine that is certainly climbing but not a flower bud to be seen!! Thanks for sharing the pics with us.-Lindy :-wave
