    Southbound

    Headed south, and finally got a camera in my hand.

    Just so some can see what a day might consist of, I have a few pics of today, but will get more in the morning.

    Footwear for the trip:




    Ice still in the beard from pre-flight

    If you were a real friend George, you would detour over to New York and drop off some Alaskan crab. I'm not saying you would have to go all the way to WAD - Potsdam is right on the way......

    1. Departure from Whitehorse at dawn
    2. Todays scenery most of the day
    3. When you need to see, you need to see
    4. Well?
    5. Weather got bad, so I waited to let the shower move out of that pass
    6. While waiting, I took a walk and found these by some critter tracks, figured my friends would like to try some real Bush food
    7. Ice flows in the rivers that are not frozen
    8. Getting bored
    9. SUN!!! I see the SUN!

    Knowing Eaton

    George,

    No WX problems that I can see...Fess up
    You changed course just 'cause I know Eaton. Sorry, but I do know him...It was just a accidental meeting at JC years ago. Please don't hold it against me in the future.

    FYI: The steaks were good.

    Great trip report George. Thank you!! What a hoot. It must have been REALLY hard not to land on that river bar. LOL

    But your work is never done. When you get home, send me that email.
