And up we go
One of the benefits of flying out of Mammoth or Reno is Horizon Air who serves complimentary wine & ales. After seeing so many blogs by my good friend McNally with his Starbucks on the seat tray, when the light hit the fine plastic glass (great for a nice Merlot), I had to make a click. I wanted to play with the light more (like a white card behind the glass) but the plane turned and the shaft disappeared. Light does that.
Traveling to AK and making flights to out of the way places like King Salmon or Brooks, padding the schedule is a must because of weather delays. And when the delays occur, you’re glad you have the padding. When there are no delays, you have to sit around the time your planned into the schedule. So, we found some power, plugged in the computers, put our feet up and watched a movie while waiting for our flight out to King Salmon.
Once in King Salmon, the great folks at Katmai Air picked us and our stuff up at the airport and took us over to their facilities. There we weigh in, us, our carry on and check luggage before boarding the float plane to Brooks Camp. I’m not about to confess to the weights, let’s just say we had more than the average camper heading to Brooks. Yeah, we’ll be camping with the bears. mtc
