Pray for Steve
In which we express hope for a great adventurer
Steve Fossett, who set 115 different records, including first to fly non-stop aroud the world and circumnavigating the globe in a balloon, is missing. He disappeared after taking off solo in alight plane from the Hilton Ranch in Southern Nevada on September 3.
"Steve took off toward the south and was going to fly southbound, looking around for some dry lake beds for some plans he had for the future," the Civil Air Patrol's Major Cynthia Ryan told CNN.
I can well imagine what those plans might be. A private civilian spaceport for Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic, perhaps? I for one, hope he's alright and will be able to fulfull whatever dream he was dreaming.
