"Doing"... beats "talking" every time...

Chances are good you read the story, then probably gave it little, if any, additional thought. It was interesting, fascinating, unbelievable, and inspiring. At the time, you were probably thinking, May be I should attempt a little more in my own life.
Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager in 1986 flew non-stop around the world - all 24,987 miles of it - in a specially built airplane with an unusually small engine and extremely large wings.The plane that Rutan designed, the Voyager I, made its historic flight in December of 1986. It carried 7,011 pounds of fuel in tanks that looked similar to a pair of outriggers on a canoe. Its cabin, with room for his co-pilot, Jeana Yeager, was the size of a small closet. They had to be in a reclining position to fly the plane, which was as loud as a lawn mower. The flight took nine days.
