    Thanks folks, appreciate the input.. I can do it here in Michigan but thought it would be great fun while I visit my Mom (92) in DL and my Brother in Vergas.. I'll touch base with the recommendations!!
    Open to all ideas!! Thanks!!

    Taledrger,
    As was already mentioned, Rick Mercil is by Park Rapids (my home base). Marc and Dawn Cook are in Bemidji (Mobergs). There use to be a guy in Perham, but haven't heard if he is still in business. Several Floatplane instructors in the area, but they don't own planes.
    When are you going to be in DL? I'm by Itasca State Park with my own strip if you are flying over, stop in, or give me a shout. Always willing to meet fellow flyers.

    Thanks Kieth! Perham would be great, my brother is on Rose lake just a bit north west.. I have a place to stay on Bemidji too and Park Rapids not far from DL..

    I'll be working at Oshkosh this Thursday until we fly the airplanes out Aug 1st.. I'll try to get something worked out and if I get up there look you up!!

    Thanks Again!!

    Our new pilot has a 160-HP no-flap Super Cub and gives float instruction in it. Google "Higher Ground Aviation" or message him on IG: @MaineBushPilot. His stuff still says Maine, but I can assure you he is in Ely. He might be able to accommodate you. Pretty slow fire season up here so far...
