    1 more day to fly then back to reality. Valdez was fun weather was marginal in AK terms. 1 plane didnít make it thru the pass that was terrible. Marginal VFR in AK means you can see the plane parked next to u😂. Flew couple more Glaciers on the way back yesterday. Guess I landed short on first run ended up with 2nd place in the open class. Shane the guy with 3hrs in a SC won third place in the bush class. Karen won rookie of the year which means I get a $750 gift certificate to Airframes Ak. I got furhtest traveled and Bobby won a bag in a drawing. I heard Karen and I won 3rd place in flower bomb. We left after we dropped our bombs.

    Thanks every one.
    Here is a cool cabin we found on a lake yesterday. Seaplane access only (unless waters low and you have a CC). Itís pretty cool to look over the nose with 50-60í and know you can get out. The winds and density altitude makes these things even more like helicopters. Wish we would of found it earlier would of been a great over night spot.

    Glad to see you had such a great time there Chuck. Fantastic flying opportunities.

    I recognise that very first mage from inside Barneyís on Northern Lights. Kevin is a great guy to do business with.
