And you thought *your* mileage was lousy????

I finally received my QSL card after working the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA many months ago.  The QSL card is very large (it doesn’t fit in my collections album) and full of interesting, as well as historical, information.  Among the tidbits I learned was that the Queen Mary’s “mileage” while underway was 13 feet per gallon of fuel oil!
