    Went to the jungle today with a load for the other mission here. After unloading I thought I would shoot a few landings with one pax. It sure is a different airplane. Landing distance was about half of what I'm used to and takeoff less than half. After landing a sandbar next to the village it was hard to resist landing a bunch more.

    You can probly hold out quite a while Brian with what you can cram into a supercub. Just remember every 2 cans of chili or pork and beans = 1/2 roll of 2 ply.

    Yesterday did not suck. My boy really wanted to go flying on skis with me, so we went out and found some icebergs...and went sledding on them.

    Not near as cool (get it, it WAS cool...) as that natural ice sculpture, but Brian's shot reminded me of this one I took a couple years ago. I know of 3 or 4 areas in Idaho with rock formations like these. Not cool at all, it was in the high 80's that day. Hard to see, but my plane is in the center.

    "Can I drive to visit or fly to visit another family member in Alaska?

    No. This is not considered “essential business.”

    None of my business and I'm not the COVID-19 Police, but the State's DHSS guidelines above appear to indicate only essential travel is allowed between communities unless their term "for critical personal needs" applies.

    Two weeks ago the ice was landable. Not so much now, loons, seagulls, pelicans and herons are back.

    I went up to the 9K ridge line behind my place to say hi to the back country skiers up there. I admire their ability and desire to skin up from the ski area parking lot, at 6800', and work that hard for one run! There were a dozen rigs in the parking lot, more then usual, (the ski area closed 2 weeks ago, due to you know what) it's good to see people finding a way to have fun while still keeping the hell away from each other. .4 hour flight time, logged as "local," but sooo much better then none at all. Normally I would have flown to Alpine or Afton WY for breakfast......

    Transportation to and from essential jobs: mining, which is what he does, is considered essential.

    Yes, I have registered with the state fro my airpark and plane with a safety plan.

    The mine stays on lock-down, so they are in quarantine at work, which makes it really easy.

    Thank you for being concerned- taking chances right now is not a good idea.

    Yup. The grassy area in the center of the first pic.

    I don't think it was open at all last year.

    Pete, last Monday morning we had 14" of heavy wet snow, no power and trees broken everywhere. Sun came out by noon and by Tuesday evening it had all melted away except where piled up. Warm sun, air and ground did it in fast.

    This was 11pm last Sunday night

    I touched a couple of these out of habit, but the more I mess with the i11 the more I realize how natively good it is at color and lighting etc without processing the images. Also, if you get the "Camera2+" app you can shoot in RAW and control the shutter etc. The SLR's get less use nowadays.

    I like the glass door, especially when stuck as GIB (guy in back), it really opens up the view.
