Will do. After that, who's taking the next leg further down the chain?For interested parties, next 2 legs could be PADU-PAAK (300nm) and PAAK-ATU (460nm) to get us near Kamchatka.

I could take either one, but I've got to go out for a bit. Will check in around 2230Z and see how you're doing. How's the WX up there today?Best,GeraldKMLB

You mean too EARLY! I thought you already had dropped it off at Unalaska! Oops.... I'll be standing by - but if someone else grabs it before me, feel free!

Looks like Greg has the next one, so I'll take the ATU leg, if I can, except look at this: PASY 182105Z 04035G46KT 7SM SCT016 BKN024 BKN036 02/M02 A2900 RMKThis is for Erickeson AS about 50nm east of ATU. Check the winds! And the area forecast is lousy:UNIMAK PASS TO ADAK AJ...VALID UNTIL 190900...CLOUDS/WX...***AIRMET MT OBSC***MTS OCNL OBSC IN CLDS/PCPN.

If you can, let me know your ETA. And watch the weather, getting progressively worse the farther west we go.GeraldKMLB
