From Vomit to Underwear

If we’re ever audited by the Internal Revenue Service, there is sure to be some chuckling at our expense reports.  We’re probably one of the few companies in the world that’s been required to pay for “vomit”.  (Please get plenty of rest the night before your MiG flight, remember to eat breakfast, and consider taking anti-motion sickness medication if you think there’s a chance extra cockpit and flight suit cleaning will be required after your flying adventure.)

We also pay for “underwear”….the full body garment, similar to “long underwear” that is worn beneath a Russian flight suit to absorb the sweat produced by a whole lot of adrenaline.

Twenty-four years ago, I took a job that changed my life. I signed on as one of the first employees of a new company selling MiG fighter jet flights in Russia. Now, I'm considered something of an Adventure Goddess. I've written a book about adventure and have flown a fighter jet, floated in zero-g and a whole lot more. Life is either an incredible adventure or nothing at all, right?
