Elevation: 348'

After a delicious Roadhouse breakfast and stories from the world famous Fairview Inn pre-party, the team has been busy sorting gear for the trip. The weather is beautiful right now and we’re prepping to fly onto the mighty Kahiltna tomorrow morning. Until then we’re enjoying solid earth under our feet, the smells of lush green plants in our noses and hearty meals in our bellies. Cheers from the RMI Knoff, Uchal and Blais team.

Tim - looking good in the hanger picture.  Just remember one foot in front of the other.  It is not a sprint it is a marathon.  Good luck.  Skip

Send more pictures!  Has it been a month yet?  LOL!  Everything is great on the home front.  Rained this morning, but windy, so I think the cherries are still good.  Still a few days off from harvest.  We are all being kinda lazy in preparation for the work of harvest.  I think our driveway is the new staging area since we now have to use domestic water on the bins.  Whatever!  It’s all good.  Love you!
