Robby had some friends up from NC so he asked if I’d like to help show them around this evening. The wind was flat calm so we headed up Knik hoping the crud wasn’t too low, it was just high enough to let us out over the glacier for a quick look. We stopped a few places...

I had some time last weekend to go play in the wind up the river.

It was blowing maybe 18-20 mph so slowed me down quite a bit. Most of my landings were consistently 20′ or less, I did have a couple 10-12′ landings which is way more fun than it should be. It took me an...

Rob and I spent a couple hours playing around the mud strip near Lake George. I was practicing dragging my tail wheel the whole way up the strip without letting mains touch, fun and challenging. On the way home Rob found a nice runway on this gravel bar.

This bar looks...

When you wanna see bear you have to go where they are, they’re in Katmai. Rob and Kristi loaded the airplanes with our junk and wayyy too much food (thanks Kristi) and headed south. Rob wanted to look at Redoubt on the way south, it’s big and icy. You know how I know?...

I’ve always wanted to go to Kayak Island so Rob and I piled all our crap into the airplanes and left Birchwood. The weather was nice so we went straight over Eklutna Lake and over the Chugach right into Prince William Sound. It’s amazing what you think you hear your en...

Rob and I decided to make a long weekend out of it and headed out from Birchwood with the Superstols. We flew down the west side of Cook Inlet for starters not really knowing where me might end up for the night. That’s the fun part right? We crossed the inlet from the...

The nephews were out from Nome soaking up some “big city” and got in on a little Superstol action while in town. We went up the Knik river looking for moose and other furry things to look at. A good time was had by all. Either I’m getting smaller or Carol is feeding th...

My birthday present to my self was to wash my airplane and go flying. I found myself up the Knik River bar hopping on maybe the nicest day of the entire summer. All I can say is that it was spectacular! The learning curve is a riot.

Kev and I fueled up and went exploring today. We stopped in Skwentna to check out the fuel situation then headed up to Chelatna Lake. We stopped and looked around for a while before heading back south. Chelatna Lake is spectacular! The water is like glass.

One thing I learned quickly was just how much weight you can stuff in the Superstol. My brother and I jammed the airplane full of fuel and then loaded all of our camping gear, fishing gear, rifles and the kitchen sink and headed out fishing for the day. We still only u...
