Where: Gracious House Lodge, Mile 82 Denali Highway, Cantwell Alaska 63.14N 147.53W
On page 105 of your Alaska Atlas D/5.5
When: July 13, 14 and 15
I have been talking to Butch and Carol about hosting us for a fly in. There is a dirt strip at the lodge about 1300" with a good approach and the highway which is much longer. There is a lake not far away, and I am sure we can work out ground transportation for those on floats. Plenty of room to tie down. Good rooms, food, and accommodations. Fuel can be had, but you will need to put it in your own can, and transfer to your aircraft and sign a waiver.
This is not going to be a fly-in for the faint of heart. The country is gnarly, the weather can be tricky. Butch has operated the lodge forever and has taken a cub everywhere a cub can go in that part of the world. He is willing to share his experience and landing zones with us. This is truly an opportunity to learn about this part of the state from an “old timer” who still flies his cub every day.
I would think folks would like to arrive Friday afternoon or Saturday morning, spending a night or two. Butch and Carol are working up a package deal for us and I should have prices in the next week. First I wanted to see if there was any interest from the group.
Please post if you desire to attend.
