i don't understand this story at all. why not go get tacos ANYWHERE in the general miami area? if you were just going flying for fun why add the taco part to the story at all? is arcadia particularly known for its tacos these days? should i go there for tacos in the future?

and they tried to get to 75 to put the plane down, but couldn't make it? i guarantee that if they HAD safely landed that plane on 75, at least 2 cars would have immediately run into it at 95-100+ mph, probably killing all involved.....were these dudes even sober?

"Going to get tacos in the Everglades"

I'm pretty sure this is some sort of euphemism, though I'm not sure for what exactly.

When life gives you alligators, make tacos.

I just assume everyone in Florida has an Uber-like drug mule gig they can turn to in desperate times. especially those with planes

When you go down on a girl but find the area particularly...swampy?

"Dude, I was going for tacos, but I went to the place in the Everglades. Lots of brush, very wet, and smelled like dead alligators. "

luna1580: is arcadia particularly known for its tacos these days


Taco Tuesday at Arcadia airport (X06) is provided by a food truck.
The mom and son who operate the truck do the cooking on site.

Their food is awesome.

The young men were flying from Tamiami exec to Arcadia airport. Probably building time in that aircraft. Or just because they could.

My airstrip is about 25 m due east of Arcadia. We used to go over there regularly on Tuesdays. And Mondays, when fuel is cheaper than usual

I have a friend who is a pilot and he will often go fly for lunch or dinner somewhere, either with friends or his wife. He has told me it is a lot more fun when you actually do something else. It is kind of like taking a day trip in your car. Would you rather just drive around for 5 or 6 hours and wind up back at home or drive 2-3 hours someplace, stop and have lunch, and then go back home?

Our local airport just had a fly in for burgers. They rotate through other near by airports all summer long. You have a plane? I will gladly go for a ride.

Your pilot friend wants you to fly because he's bored.

Yeah, if I were going down in the Okefenokee, I would hope I didn't survive the crash.

Same applies to motorcycle trips.

"Hey man, remember that killer barbecue we had up in Bryson City?"

"Dude, it's only a couple hours away. Let's ride"

I used to paddle in the 'Glades almost every weekend.  Wild gators want nothing to do with humans unless they're already dead.

It's hard to even get remotely close to one.  They'll hiss at first and if you don't fark off they'll dive in the water or walk away.

But ooga booga booga! Gators skeery!

I do not remember the name of the truck, but they are local to Arcadia.
They are from Queretaro.
