Milt what did you fly as a Nasal Aviator :).
I have near 7000 hrs as a Naval Air Crewman.
Started on EC-121Ms then EA-3Bs. On to EP-3Es as an
Airborne Electronic Warfare Operator. UC-12B (Beech
King Air 200) as loadmaster/Crewchief and then P-3C
On the related subject, I "HAD" a G5RV that had in
a 50Ft Hemlock in the front yard. About 40ft down

was a double trunk we had to have removed because a
crack developed in it. So now Im sans anything for
40 and below.

Anybody else have ladder stories?
