Apparently when the SR71 was built they had to transport it from Burbank to Palmdale. Being top secret, it had to go incognito. What's the best way? Put it in a box!

For a minute I thought that was the transformers they were moving to Idaho springs last friday, then I noticed the cars

you think the blackbird is a big plane due to most of the pics you see but it's actually quite small. They have one at the udvar hazy museum, really cool. That, the concorde,enterprise and x35 are the coolest things they have

Have you read this article? Must have been such an amazing experience to fly one of those.

The book has got to be pretty cool.

View from right below the summit of longs peak. We were cleaning the last pitch of the Dunn/Westbay route after completing the first hammerless ascent (5.10/C3+) when a brief thunderstorm gave us a quick soaking. Totally worth it for the view we enjoyed with our lunch.

Troubleshooting water penetration problems in Chicago, 37th floor penthouse condo. I rode my bike to the jobsite and didn't want to carry 400 feet of rope, so i just brought 50 foot ropes, tied knotts in the ends and jugged back up to the roof when i was done.
