I'm from Wisconsin, land of the giant mosquitoes. I really was amazed
that we only found mosquitoes in one place. I'm not really complaining
about them. By the way Beryl did not crash because of inexperience,
stupidity, or lack of preparation. Her gas line froze up. The propeller
wasn't even bent due to the slurpy bog which she almost died in trying to
wade out. Luckily a fisherman happened by. I get so sick of hearing about
Amelia Earhart. Did she ever accomplish anything except to fly unprepared,
without instrument knowledge and disappear?
Beryl wrote books afterwards. Hemingway said she was one of the best
writers he had come across. She was a fine horsetrainer before and after
this part of her life. Married 3 times had a son. Also was the girlfriend
of a son of the King of England. Really an unusual life.
