    Awesome as always Chuck. I have a little time in Seldovia. Your picture flying short final into Seldovia shows a cabin on a point in the slew to the right. My friends Stu and Betsy live there May thru Oct. My wife and I spent 5 days there last June during the Solstice Festival. Neat little town. I got to fly Stu's j3 a couple times while there and flew across the Kenai to Nuka island and then south around the whole shoreline to Portlock and back around by English Bay. I flew over by Chugach island and from there it looked like a million miles to Kodiak.
    Thanks for sharing your trip

    (Great excuse honey I left the Cub out in AK Iím gonna need to go get it)
    I remember you saying that now in Anchorage. When will you head south in the Cub? Iím tentatively hoping to make a trip to Yukon and NWT in my EX the first part of August. Maybe we could meet up there and then turn south?

    Maybe that was your buddy who gave us a ride he was a character (that would been cool to meet him) brought us straight to habour master said she runs the town. Cool little town for sure. Restaurant didnít have some of the food on the menu said we were the first tourist to show up this year. Same at Homer all the shops were preparing for the first cruise ship to show up which was the next day. I didnít even go look across to Kodiac would of been to tempting. The longest part of going over water is when your half way.
