    One of the only articles I have ever read on hauling freight was written by Barry Lopez back in 1995, titled On the Wings of Commerce. Here's a link to the PDF version in Harpers Magazine.

    Barry Lopez, known for his best selling books on nature, flies around the globe in 747 cargo planes hauling expensive sports cars, horses and penguins of all things.

    The article also appears as a chapter in one of his collections of short non-fiction, About this Life; Journeys on the Threshold of Memory.

    Thanks again for a great description of this essential service. And the blender works fine!
