  • Ecks, we are waiting for the news on the seatbelt! I bet you are going to be good on that front - neat goal though! That is one of the most awkward, uncomfortable things. I am hoping that one day our family will all be able to take a trip back to my home country, South Africa, and it will be so nice if I can travel relatively comfortably, instead of feeling like I have been jammed into a spot too small for me!

    Hope you can figure out what you want to do - hope something turns up. Amazing how looking in a different direction can start a whole new train of thought and a different life... let us know when the inspiration hits!

        • I second the nom nom.

          Waiting to hear about your flight too. I never needed the extension (got awfully close though), but I felt so cramped in the aisles, it really demoralized me. Last times I flew (late winter, early spring), I could move around easily and it felt SO good. I wish it for you.

          • Hey All! On the plane posting from my phone and I'm proud to say that not only does the seat belt fit but I've got a shit ton of space between me and the fully extended belt! I get to tighten the belt!

                • This is wonderful, Ecks! And with the flight back, you get to meet this goal twice-over.

                      • Thanks everyone for the support! I was nervous about getting on the plane really because I wanted it to fit so bad so I didn't have to report bad news. I wanted to take a photo of it so bad but I didn't want other people to think I was taking a photo of my junk or something. I'd say there was about 6" or so to spare on the loose end of the strap once I pulled it to a comfortable position. I'm back home in waterloo now. It was a fun journey driving back!

                        • Wow! I am impressed and so happy. Way to go. Now, update that signature. You are definitely getting there. Yeh, the passengers might have thought such a picture-taking odd. Of course, you could have explained and then had wonderful discussions:-) But, hey, we can all visualized the space left. So utterly cool!

                                Thoughts are with you! Good luck!! Job in Waterloo?? Congrats on the seatbelt. What an awesome feeling.... and probably very wise to not have taken a picture of your "junk". I would have been one of those passengers that would have noticed it and thought "what the f*ck"
