I've scattered in Hawaii and up in Montana and Colorado and Arizona. It can be tough to get permission. In California, there are a lot of park rangers who aren't into you doing that over their territory. But we've been able to do it at Mount Diablo up in the San Francisco Bay Area and the mountains around the lakes.
I have a tube that goes out the window. I've seen devices people have, chutes under the planes and mechanical contraptions and all those things. The big limitation is they can only do one at a time. When I do a flight, I'm taking several remains with me to keep costs down. We don't comingle, of course, but we scatter them at different times and different locations. I do maybe six, at most 10, on a trip. If we're going up to the mountains, we're going to scatter what we have in the mountains. We get requests for specific sites like the Golden Gate Bridge, but of course you can't just scatter right over the bridge like that. We haven't got any requests for Alcatraz yet.
I'm 78 and I'm in the midst of retiring. Without a doubt, I know I want to be scattered. There's a lighthouse in California that's real nice. It's a place I used to dive. It's called Pigeon Point. That's where I'm going. My wife will probably be there too. I think it's the best way to treat the Earth. You're not planting a piece of real estate that may or may not last. I remember being a kid living in Birmingham, California, which is along the San Francisco Bay, and I remember going fishing and seeing all these old grave markers used as a water break. I thought that was kind of screwy.
