R P Dahlke sort of fell into the job of running a crop-dusting business when her dad decided he'd rather go on a cruise than take another season of lazy pilots, missing flaggers, testy farmers and horrific hours. After two years at the helm, she handed him back the keys and fled to a city without any of the above. And no, she was never a crop-duster.
