Ahh.. I see a C182 in your sig lines. I had the pleasure once and recall it 
climbing "like a homesick Angel" as the saying goes. It would climb like crazy 
and fly fast and heavily loaded as well! Awesome airplane. The W123 of Cessna's 
IMO.

So I was traveling from DCA to CHS this morning, we get on the plane, 
everyone is ready to go, the young lady pilot steps out to the 
microphone at the front to tell us they have to turn the plane off, wait 
5 minutes, then back on to reboot it. Aside from how bizarre this is, I 
tell my daughter this will not end well, in about 15min they will 
determine that plane isn't going anywhere, and finding another plane is 
going to be problematic. 

Shonuff after turning the airplane off, then waiting, then turning it 
back on and fooling around with it again, she comes back out and tells 
us the airplane is broken and is not going anywhere, they are going to 
have to try find another airplane. This is going to take about an hour. 
We can sit there or go into the terminal if we want. No one gets up. 
So then a few minutes later she comes back and tells us we have to get 
off, so we do that. 

Then a little while later they change the gate to another one across the 
way, there is another plane there I guess they stole from some other 
flight. We finally load up that one, it is kinda weird as it is all the 
same people in all the same places, same crew, like a Twilight Zone 
thing. It got off OK, we were about 1.5hr late arriving in CHS. 

We rented something called a Lincoln MKZ or MKT or something, it was 
like a big wagon but said "Town Car" on it. Somehow I do not see the 
guidos driving that around Boston with the "A Touch of Class" plate on 
the front. Nice enough vehicle but the controls were extremely 
strange. The fan control was a metal bar detail that had LED lights 
behind, you swiped on the bar to make it go up or down. I only figured 
that out trying to push everything on the dash to get the AC working 
better and inadvertently swiped on it. You could also do it from the 
touch scree, which required something close to a hammer blow to get to 
respond. I never did figure out how to get the electric hatch to close 
itself except with the fob. There was a touch button under the bumper 
to open it (a stupid location) but nothing to push to close it.
