A favor, please
      #272964 - 11/14/09 11:10 AM Attachment (150 downloads)

If you plan to visit your airport sometime soon, would you do me a favor, please? As many of you may already know, I am trying to help my friends move back to New England. First they need to sell their airstrip down in Tennessee.

I had another harebrained idea yesterday that if I contacted FBO's and asked them to post the attached flyer that some might actually do it.

If you would be so kind, please print off the attached document, stick a pushpin through it and post it on the bulletin board of your home 'drome. Can't hurt. Unless you stick the pushpin in your thumb. Don't do that.

Thanks!

Tina

Done! If it stops raining by tomorrow I plan to head to the airport and do some practice flying.

Outside the realm of avsig, I searched for email addresses for FBO's in some targeted states. (Michigan, California, and Florida so far.)

Lots of time spent doing that, but the weather today here in CT was awful so I had nothing else to do.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that a few of the people I contacted wrote back to tell me that they would post the flyer in their offices.

Kindness of strangers.........

strange. :)

I can only hope that others complied, but just didn't mention it.

Best,

Tina

Tina,

I just thought of another possibility

www.livingwithyourplane.com

They specifically cater to your audience and have classifieds.

Tina, I will post that at our local airport next time I'm out.

A suggestion, a shorter URL is easier to read, type, and remember. Click on this one for an example:

http://tinyurl.com/ownyourdream

How did you do that, Sean? That is so GREAT! I hate the long drawn out name.......

and thank you for posting it at your airport. Sometime, someone, somewhere will see it and simply have to have it.

Oh, and have the $$ for it also. :)

Tina, you can do that with any URL by going to tinyurl.com. You enter the actual address of the site, and get back an address that consists of http://tinyurl.com/ followed by a short string of letters and digits. Or, you can use the "Custom alias" box to enter a readable name, which Sean did.

When someone clicks on the shortened address, it actually takes them to the TinyURL server, which looks up the actual address associated with your shortened one, and redirects their browser to it.

I like that. Just wish I'd learned about it before peppering that long address across the country.

I continue to be amazed at the kindness of strangers. I have had so many email replies from FBO's across the country saying that they have posted the notice on their wall. I can only imagine that there are plenty who did it, but didn't bother to write.

Funny thing was, the only 'negative' remark I received back was from an FBO in Tennessee.....

Thank you and...

have a splendid evening.

Tina
