Dead Rube Scrolls

I just found this entry in my travelling journal from 1999.


March 8th, 1999
Brisbane, Australia

Our flight from Auckland with Garuda Indonesia was bumpy at the best of times, but I was able to remain calm until the landing; which proved that the Duke Boys in the cockpit were all roaring drunk, which I had suspected all along


Today, I can’t imagine how cheap a flight would have to be before I signed on with an Indonesian airline.

Twice in my life have I had the kind of airplane landings that shook the luggage compartments open. Once with Air Garuda, as above. The other time, the airplane actually had to abort the landing and come around for a second try, seeing as the previous plane had failed to leave the runway. Or, so I hear. I was mercifully oblivious to the entire flight, lost in a Percocet/Alcohol wonderland.
