Well, today‘s the first day of my trip and I‘ve gone from Los Angeles to Goose Bay, Canada. Not a whole lot going on in Goose Bay. Except a whole lot of cold, that is! The temperature here is about 14 degrees Fahrenheit (-10 C for you international types) which is way chilly for my California ass! Goose Bay is a good place to stop for the night because it‘s right on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, so it‘s a good jumping off point to ‘cross the pond‘, as they say in pilot-speak. The trip is going great for the first day and crossing the Atlantic tomorrow will definitely be one of the highlights. I‘ll try to check in to keep everyone posted – later.

FIRST STOP !

i think that , at least , we will fly in my country .. portugal ,because all the airplanes when going of europe to america etc have ,at least , to fly in our aerospace ...
well , thinking in everything i know about planes ,his plane cannot fly more than goose bay - london or lisbon ..or he could stop in Base das LAjes in the AZORES ISLANDS or even in another island ...let´s wait and see ;D

Seeing on the place he is now, all up in the north, the most likely option would be not Portugal.
I think that he's gonna fly over Greenland, where the most atlantic flights find place. The air is very thin there. Maybe make a stop in Iceland or something and then head over to europe and stuff.

most of the canada flights make a touch and go in oporto or lisbon (or london). but the route you it´s possible !..anyway he will be in europe again -that´s what matter ! i don ´t think he will stop at africa ... maybe a AMERICA - EUROPE - ASIA - AMERICA (not africa ..... ) because lol ..african airports are not that good ..if u exclude the ones from the capital of each country or something !

Well it's a tour around the world, so why not include Africa? I don't think Africa has the worst airporst honestly. South-America, Asia, South-east & east europe.

-10C is kinda chilly in Minnesota for this time of year. I get used to those temperatures from December–February. It's really not too terribly freezing; Dexter's just a wuss when it comes to colder temperatures.

Dublin, Ireland (Dexter)
11/18/04

Day 2 – Crossing the Atlantic.

This morning‘s flight was early and cold but it made for a nice view leaving Goose Bay. Now if you‘ve never heard of Goose Bay, you‘re probably not alone. It‘s a very small town in Newfoundland. It‘s also not a very happening vacation destination. But it‘s a good stop because it‘s on the far eastern coast of Canada, so you gas up there and start heading across the Atlantic.

If I had a plane like John Travolta, I could take it nonstop to Europe. But my plane (a Cessna Citation CJ2) is not quite that buff, so I need to find a place to get some gas on the way. So my first stop today was Reykjavik, Iceland. That flight is entirely over the water of the North Atlantic, so I had a lot of time to contemplate that there was a whole lot of nothing around and no place to land if you have a problem! But the flight went great. About halfway through I flew over the tip of Greenland, which was all huge ice and snow-covered mountains. Very cool looking.

I had been told that there was an active volcano on Iceland, and I might not be able to land there. Which is just fine with me, as I generally avoid volcanoes. When I got close, though, I was cleared to land. Iceland is a beautiful country and pretty snowy this time of year.

After gassing up I took off again, this time for Dublin, Ireland. This flight was also a few hours at night over the North Atlantic, not a real hospitable part of the world. It It makes for an exciting flight, though. You start thinking about stuff like whether your affairs are in order! Do I have a will? Not really, it was a cool few hours and a welcome sight to see the coast of Ireland. The city looked super cool coming in at night and it‘s awesome to be in Dublin!


:D

I think a flight like that would be really hard, and he needs to rest now in order to continue flying savely. I bet the rules on that are very strict.

well , i think it+s more one hour or something ...but ok !
Probably not even, From the border at south Holland/Germany, it's only a 45 minute flight to Stanstead airport (near London). And the plain doesn't fly at high speeds. I don't know how fast Dexter's plain flies on average.

"Cairo, Egypt (Dexter)
11/20/04

Day 4

Well, I had a great time in Dublin. Dublin‘s known for being the home of Guinness ale and people swear it‘s the best glass of Guinness you‘ll get anywhere, because it‘s just fresher there. In fact, I think some pubs claim to have a direct pipeline from the Guinness brewery! So I had to stop into a pub and have a pint or two. It would have been rude not to. I have to admit, it was really good. If you‘re ever in the neighborhood (of Dublin) I highly recommend that you stop in and try some.

So today I took off from Dublin and flew down through Europe. I passed right over Paris, and gave the city a what‘s up shoutout as I flew by. Over the next hour I rolled over Geneva, Switzerland and most of Italy before landing in Rome for gas. Too bad I wasn‘t staying, Rome is such a cool city. Just don‘t drive when you‘re there.

After fueling I took off again, headed for Cairo, Egypt. This flight was really cool, it was night and I was flying straight across the Mediterranean. I took a left at Crete and headed towards Egypt. There‘s something really cool about flying at night over a strange place. It was super dark out, just the wind noise on the plane and tons of stars out.

Now they warned me that Cairo was, believe it or not, recently hit by a locust swarm! How Biblical. I was told that I might not be able to land there. Which is just fine with me, as I generally avoid locusts. I guess, though, the swarm passed through or to the side and I was cleared to land.

Cairo seems so different from European cities cause it‘s just not a Western city. It feels very cool, though, to be in such a wild and historic city.

I will tell you all more later."

Day 5 – Cairo

Song stuck in my head today: Rock The Casbah

Dude, I should have gotten sponsored! I didn‘t think of it till now, but people making trips are always getting sponsored. I could like, put a big ‘Skoal‘ sticker on the side of my plane, or ‘Cingular Wireless‘ on the tail.

Well, maybe not. This trip is full on independent, DIY style. It‘s sort of like a glorified road trip, really. Every morning I get in the plane and go a little farther. The plane is stocked with Doritos and beef jerky, there‘s lots of maps all over, and there‘s clothes and other assorted junk in the back. If I just had a dog hanging its tongue out the window I‘d be all set.

So today I was in Cairo, which is of course a Muslim country, and sort of the beginning of my time in the Middle East. To most Americans, the Middle East seems like a scary and dangerous place, and I really wasn‘t sure what to expect. I‘ve certainly seen enough horrible images of bombings and hostages to think twice about coming at all. But I found it to be much less sketchy than I would have thought.

To be sure, there were signs of a post-9/11 world. When I took a taxi to the hotel, the hotel rolled a mirror under the car to check for car bombs! And when you walk into a hotel, you have to go through a metal detector just like at an airport. I was never hassled, though, even when the detector went off. Luckily for me, racial profiling probably works in my favor! Just kidding, was that one in bad taste? Anyway, what surprised me is how friendly people were toward me and how they wanted to talk about the world situation. They wanted to stress to me that Islam is a peaceful religion, and the acts of a few extremists do not reflect on their religion as a whole. They pointed out that there are religious zealots in all religions, even Christianity. For example, they said, what about Christian fanatics that bomb abortion clinics – does this make us think that all. Christians are violent or dangerous? Of course not.

Believe it or not, some people were even pro-American! I couldn‘t believe it. They talked about the vast amounts of foreign aid the the US gives countries in the Middle East every year, and some even said that they were glad that Saddam is gone! They were also frustrated with the dangerous image that the Middle East has now. They blamed the media for sensationalizing certain events, making it seem like the whole region is like that all the time. I thought that was a really good point. How many times have I watched CNN showing kidnappings, or suicide bombings, or demonstrations in the streets, and thought, this must be how it is everywhere over there all the time?

Now, I don‘t want to get into whether we should be in Iraq or not, or whether Bush is bad or not, because it‘s a really divisive and complicated situation. However, I thought it was a very enlightening and educational experience to actually talk to the people that are living it.

Overall, Cairo was a mellow, cool place and I‘m glad I stopped there.

My flight today took me four hours over Saudi Arabia to a tiny country called United Arab Emirates. I landed in a city called Dubai, and as I flew towards Dubai, I actually flew over the Persian Gulf. Wild. It was night, there were lots of oil patforms in the gulf, and they all had fires burning on them. I gotta admit, being by yourself in a plane over the Persian Gulf at night with the orange glowing fires under you is a creepy experience. It was for me. But hey, that‘s life.

I will tell you more tomorrow.

MTV :

What do Amelia Earhart and Dexter Holland have in common? An insatiable urge to fly around the world. The Offspring frontman — who's an actual pilot — has begun his quest to fly around the globe in nine days. On Wednesday, Holland took off from Los Angeles and crossed North America, landing in Goose Bay, Newfoundland. He'll begin crossing the Atlantic Ocean on Thursday (November 18). Hopefully, unlike Earhart, Holland won't disappear somewhere in the mid-Pacific. ...

My bet is Australia will be the next stop. Man, if only I knew where. I'd guess one of the northern areas (for fuel reasons), most likely a capital city, Darwin or Brisbane. Living in Brisbane, I'm hoping like hell it'll be here. Not that I'd get to see him or whatever (even if I *could* make it out to the international airport whenever it'll be), it'd just be cool to think he made a stop here.

w00t! Let me post first:

Seattle, WA (Dexter)
11/25/04

Day 10 – Seattle, Washington.

Song of the day: Sliver

Well I didn‘t get much sleep in that motel in Nome because US customs tracked me down and called me in the room a few hours later. They said they would appreciate it if I could make my way down to their office down the street.

It was about 11:30 am when I walked down there and what struck me about this town as I walked through it was that the sun was barely up. In fact, it looked like it was almost sunset. That‘s what happens in the higher latitudes, you know, during the winter the sun doesn‘t stay out long. But it was really trippy to see it in person.

I finally arrived at the post office/US Customs building (small town). All right, so I had to be scolded for not clearing customs last night, yes, yes, I understand, I‘m very sorry, it‘ll never happen again. Actually, the customs agent was a pretty nice guy, just doing his job I guess. He drove me out to the plane to check its documents, and so I finally got to see a little bit of Nome. It‘s a really cool little town. This is the place, I‘m told, where the Iditarod sled dog race finishes every March. I gotta check that out sometime.

My new friend Brent was there still and after the customs guy was finished with me I got the plane ready. Brent had a nice 1949 Dodge truck to show me, that he had restored, and it was awesome. When he asked me to sign it, I felt a little bad, messing up his truck and all. I‘ve signed a lot of weird stuff before, but never a vintage truck!

I was ready to leave at about 2 pm. I told them I‘d be back for the Iditarod, climbed in and took off for Anchorage. Alaska is really beautiful country to fly over. At this time of year it has a starkness to it but it‘s so expansive that it sort of takes you back, like whoa, this shit is big. The flight to Anchorage was an hour and a half and by the time I landed, the sun was just setting.

You know, it‘s the little conveniences of home that make all the difference. When you‘re travelling internationally, you just can‘t get stuff that you take for granted at home. Like, I tried to get peanut butter for the last four days. Good luck! So, when I saw a Subway sandwich shop in Nome, I just about got misty. And now, in Anchorage, my cell phone started working. Things were really looking up. If I could just find a Del Taco or an In-n-Out burger (two of my favorite local places to eat), it would be just like OC.

My stop in Anchorage was pretty brief, I got some gas, made a couple calls and was off again. I was now headed to Seattle, Washington.

People don‘t realize how far away Alaska really is. Like for this flight, you wouldn‘t think that Anchorage is that far from Seattle, but it‘s like 1500 miles. It‘s about as far as going from LA to Chicago. So this was a pretty long leg. One cool thing about it though, even though a lot of this flight is over Canada, you don‘t have to clear customs in Seattle, cause you take off from the US and you‘re landing in the US. So it was a good flight. The idea of being back in the continental US sounded pretty righteous to me.

The descent and landing into Seattle was probably the worst weather of the entire trip. There was icing on the descent, and quite a bit of turbulence. It was the kind of turbulence that every once in awhile lifts you out of your seat and knocks your head against the ceiling. It was also, of course, night by this time, which always adds a little more difficulty to any approach. I was bumping around in the clouds pretty good until right before touchdown, when I broke out and could see the runway. It wasn‘t over yet, though. I went through some pretty strong wind shear on final.

Most people who don‘t really fly, I know, are like, ‘Wind shear, I know that‘s bad, but I don‘t really know what it is.‘ Basically, wind shear is where the wind direction and wind strength are changing so suddenly that if you‘re not careful, your plane‘s airspeed can drop so low that you literally fall out of the sky. Again, something I generally avoid. So although I never felt that I was in any serious danger or anything, it kept me paying attention all the way through to landing. When I finally got on the ground, I couldn‘t help but think somehow nature was making me earn it – I couldn‘t just coast back into the US without paying for it!

Although I had only been flying for about six hours that day, I was beat. I decided to call my friend Blackball who lives in Seattle and stay for the night. He picked me up and we went to a full on Mexican taqueria for a couple tacos and a beer.

Tacos, holy crap, it just keeps on getting better and better.
