I was on the tracks coming back from Europe one day and while monitoring 121.5 and 123.45 I heard a guy asking if someone could relay his position report to Gander. I was bored so, I got on the radio and told the guy I would be happy to. BTW, relaying position reports is not uncommon on the tracks. Sometimes, even in airliners, you can't reach Gander or Shanwick.
So, I tell the guy I am ready to copy his pos report and then he starts reading it off. "N12345, 40N30W, 1200Z, next 30N40W, 1500Z, 11000 feet."
I copy this stuff down but, it just doesn't sound right. So I ask him to repeat his altitude and I also needed his fuel in pounds. He tells me he realling is at 11000 feet and he had no clue what his fuel in pounds was but, it was somewhere in the nine hour area.
Alright, at this point I am really confused. So, I ask him what his aircraft type is. His reply, Cessna 172. And, he said he could really use a backrub.
We chatted for a little while to help ease his boredom. What he was doing just sounded really wild to me.
