Anche se il Posto Informazioni Meteorologiche non può fare niente per me, è divertente volare. Venti da ovest in quota; quelli sono venti in prua, e ne possiamo fare a meno. Voliamo quanto più basso possibile, ma tenendoci sempre vicino a campi adatti per l'atterraggio. A volte non possiamo volare molto bassi perché i campi sono sparpagliati in mezzo al regno dei pini che copre la terra fin dove arriva il mio sguardo. Ecco una strada nel bosco che corre parallela alla mia ferrovia, ecco un laghetto e un pascolo, poi di nuovo i pini, dappertutto.
