I've made that trip three times.

The best time was in my MGB (because it was the first time).

The second best time was in my miata (because it was a roadster).

The third best time was in my FR-S (third only because mrs humfrz thought she was going to die).

Yep, it's a two day drive, at least. Taking three days is more relaxing.

What to see along the way? Really, it's all about the scenery.

After school starts, during the week is best timing.

Have fun!

WARNING - WARNING - pa-pa rant:

DANG, ignorance and the lack of scientific common sense is out of control.

Our granddaughter is due to start back to school tomorrow and she is required to supply the school with an EpiPen, containing epinephrine (or generic), in case she has a anaphylaxis episode.

So, the one she has, manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals, has expired by one month. Her mother has had it on order for a few months and since it was back ordered it won’t arrive for 10 days after school starts.

There is a national (International) supply shortage, ever since the price was reduced by Pfizer (Mylan) down from $400 to $100 by forcing a generic (made by Teva) into the market place. The manufacturing costs per dose is about $1.00 – yep ONE DOLLAR!

Now, Pfizer has extended the expiration date of the EpiPen by several months (data shows stability up to two years) to accommodate the shortage. Side note, why does the product have a one year expiration date if the active ingredient (epinephrine) has a three year shelf life!

Well now, since my daughter has the one month expired generic product (that doesn’t have a published expiration date extension, the school nurse wasn't going to allow her to attend school until she supplies an updated product (which won’t arrive for 10 days).

I explained the below my daughter to explain to the school administrators the situation.

“Hey folks, Pfizer has extended the expiration date on their epinephrine why can’t you accept that it's logical for the active ingredient (epinephrine) in the generic product by Teva to be as stable. It’s a fucking stable chemical compound delivered by an auto injector. Yep, just like the same damn auto injectors used by the everyday soldier in the Army since the 1940s to self-inject atropine. You don’t have to be a brain surgeon to administer the stuff”

Well, she explained that to them and they decided they will allow my granddaughter to start school with the rest of her classmates.

Maybe that’s the reason I get a pension check every month from AstraZeneca -

You tell 'em, humfrz.

I hate to tell you but ignorance and lack of scientific common sense have always been out of control. Crippling fear of litigation has made it worse.

Is that all information you'd expect a school nurse to know? Why would the reduced price cause a shortage?
I imagine she has some sort of allergy that would require an EpiPen, rather than all children have to have one nowadays?

As far as a school nurse having that knowledge, all that information is on the Internet and some of it was even on the local news.

As far as the shortage, I'm guessing that the drastically reduced profit margins caused the manufacturers to reduce production thus creating a shortage -

Yep, she has an allergic condition that may require an EpiPen injection. They are not required for all children.

Well, anyway, school will not start tomorrow anyway, because of a teachers strike.

Also, like auto deaths, most aircraft fatalities are "pilot error" not mechanical failures.
All the statistics I've seen, which are now impossible to find thanks to somebody, point to small planes being an order of magnitude more dangerous than driving a car.

We're on a well for water. The idiot who installed a lot of our plumbing decided to mix iron nipples with brass valves. Two leaks so far, so I decided to replace it all. Gods, what a nightmare that was. One mistake and fuck no I'm not driving to home depot = a mess of right turns. It's ugly but it works. Now the well autofills the tank again, as the Gods intended. Next up is replacing a bunch more to get the bypass in place and avoid the last point of possible failure.

Tomorrow I go to the dealer for the... third time in a month? The new, free under warranty, steering wheel is in, so that gets replaced.

Also hoping the service manager will be there so we can get the roof rust approved for a work order at their body shop. Wish me luck guys.

I'm sitting at a ramen restaurant in Kyoto and I'm watching a TV that shows the devastation Typhoon Jebi has caused in Osaka.

@ichitaka05 Do you have folks over in the affected regions?

The statistics are pretty readily available, the difficulty comes with trying to compare it "cross platform" like autos to planes. It is also more difficult because "general aviation" covers a broad spectrum of flying types from ultralights to corporate jets. This AOPA report based on NTSB statistics comes closest, but it deals with raw numbers and does not talk about the flights that did not end in accident or death.

In the end, single engine private planes are more dangerous than cars, in much the same way that motorcycles are more dangerous than cars, but I do not believe it is a magnitude more dangerous.

The one place where planes differ is a lot of accidental deaths are a result of either running out of fuel or flying into conditions you are not capable of handling. Both of those are almost entirely preventable.

At least to me, it all boils down to flying being less forgiving of human error.
