I got out for a bit Monday even though it was a bit cloudy and rainy, still fun. Birchwood seems to be always calm. Fun times.

After some landings I checked out the grassy shoreline. I saw a moose laying in the mud and thought she might be stuck but I didn't want to get...

The weather on the 4th was pretty nice and we've been having some super warm weather for Alaska this week. I decided to go out for a bit and do some exploring for the afternoon since I had a bit of free time. 

  

I went south from Birchwood into the mountains mostly...

I promised more and here’s a little more. This weekend produced some fan-freakin-tastic weather! Saturday and Sunday pretty much all ran together so I’ll just go with weekend. 

I had a little avgas left in the tanks I needed to get out so I burned it, in the Rotax. Satu...

First, I know I’ve been slacking on the updates, I’m going to try to do better I promise. 

The weather finally cleared up, it’s been a super miserable spring here in Anchorage this year. Windy and cold and all around generally sucky weather. Today however was amazing.

The weather hasn’t been super nice the last couple of weeks so when the sun comes out you take advantage of it. My brother and I piled all our camping stuff into the airplane, slammed it full of fuel and headed across the inlet to a well-known river with lots of sand....

The weather has been pretty gnarly the last week or so and I haven’t been flying so it was great to get out yesterday with some friends.

We started by flying up Eklutna Lake and landing on the strip at the far end of the lake. The fall colors are pretty right now and pr...

A couple weekends ago Rob and I along with my brother and sis-inlaw were headed home from Montague island and we saw a sweet beach we wanted to check out. There was a beautiful beach house on the other side of a small river and Rob decided to go take a look. The Supers...

I was looking through my videos from this summer and found a video of my brother and me chasing Rob up the Matanuska Glacier. It was a gorgeous summer afternoon, what could possibly be better than glacier flying? Seems like every time I turn around I’m saying this is t...

Long weekends are the best, they’re even better when you have a Superstol. A small group of us left Birchwood around 10am-ish and headed west. The weather Saturday morning was perfect but we knew it wasn’t going to last very long. After a little aerial tour around Big...

My brother and I have been wanting to do some deer hunting on Montague Island down in Prince William Sound for a while now so we decided that now was a good time. We invited Robby to go along and he graciously helped flying gear and people around. Rob and I flew from B...
