    North to Alaska

    Leaving Saturday with the 185 and PA12 Dallas to Anchorage planning on the low route through Wyoming and clearing in Lethbridge. Any recommendations for a fuel stop between Lethbridge and Dawson Creek. The guys will not want to deal with Calgary approach. Weather permitting I might try clearing at Cranbrook but will need advice on fuel say if we head for Dawson Creek. The 12 has ABW31s and a Boare prop so maybe 80 kts 250 NM

    Grand Prairie is a good stop, good fuel prices for Canada, good place to spend the night, lots of hotel choices, restaurants, etc.
    Spent nights there coming and going last couple years.

    Fill up in Cut Bank. Clear at CEQ4 right at the border. Nice long grass strip. Lethbridge has a landing fee.

    No, we have a remote property up near Lake Creek. If you are out that way stop at the Bentaliat, we are directly across from the Northwoods

    I really liked stopping at Rocky Mountain House airport. It's a friendly place. I recommend going there if it falls on the right spot on the map for you.

    Good deal Scott, we have the 185 on floats and bought the 12 to ease into some bar hopping
