_____ Ash I have never actually seen one of those, just in print. However, here is a link to weather conditions near here.

____ I would think that if they really worked we would see more of them, its kind of like my hovercraft, Insurances and right of way rules pretty much negate using it on open water. Basically if I am on cushion (off the water) I am not covered by watercraft rules, but I must yield to watercraft.

MoMan,

Hell freezing over is old news. That happened at the last Superbowl when the New Orleans Saints beat the Indianapolis Colts.

light snow and freezing temperatures caused 11 fender benders between where I live and work. my normal 20 min commute was 2 hours.


Moman, you have a hover craft right? can hover craft jump over small hydroelectric dams. I live and work near the rhine. A triüp dopwn the rhine would be by far teh quickest way to work save the hydroelectric dams. ( and I am not going to pay the severeal hundred to take a trip through the locks twice a day, plus it takes 30 minutes to gt through)

So, what are my possibilities for taking a hovercraft over or around a dam ( the banks of teh river are steep and have lots of shrubs)
