  3. I leave this morning for a 4 month hunting season in the Aleutian Range south of Denali. I just got my good old 1957 Super Cub out of the hangar. Engine preheated because in this morning of mid-November, the temperature is below -10°C. Loaded to its maximum with dried meat, rice, hunting bait, some tools and a rifle on the wing strut. According to my calculation we will take off just 2 lbs below MTOW. And no front wind to give us a bit of lift. This should be a long run. The skis almost grazed the treetops, but here we are. A few wing waves to greet the house where we'll be back in Spring. Somewhere south of Fairbanks, enroute to Healy, our entry door to the Denali National Park Clouds are getting thicker, but not enough to lose track of the George Park hwy The sky temporarily clears just above Otto Lake after Healy. Approaching the bridge over Nenana River, we'll have to find our way below the clouds to head to McKinley Park I guess this is our chance... Still following George Park hwy, we now fly over the Hurricane Gulch Bridge (this default bridge does not come close to the impressive real one) As we pass North of Talkeetna, before entering Rainy Pass, large cumulus show up on the horizon. I'm not sure I'll be able to make it to the camp today... Indeed, only 50 miles from the camp, snow, degraded visibility and cloud cover forces me to land. After 3 hours of waiting on the ground I have to see the evidence. I'll have to camp here while waiting for the sky to clear out. The temperature drops rapidly after sunset. You just have to look up to the sky to understand why. Clouds slowly dissipate and from cloudy, the sky becomes starry. The night was short but the early morning is full of hope. Sky is perfectly clear and calm. It should barely take 30 minutes to fly to my hunting cabin. 20 minutes later, I'm above the Stony River valley, a few miles North of Lake Clark Preserve & Wilderness. My destination is here, somewhere. GPS makes searching almost too easy, and I arrive directly downwind. It's an expression, because at that moment there is not even a breeze in the valley. A last left turn, the flaps extended, and a landing as if on cotton. The Super Cub glides smoothly to the foot of the spruce trees that surround the cabin. Going back to your cabin after months is also risking finding surprises. Bears in particular tend to be overly curious, especially before hibernating. After a careful inspection, nothing to report. The wood cut in the previous season quickly heats the cabin. Everything is quickly ready for a successful hunting season. But here in the wild, you always have to adapt to the unexpected.
  4. Coast of Freedom - a place where I feel at ease. My next part in history. Enjoy viewing
  5. Excuse the artifacts, had to boost the gain as it was pitch black out when I made the flight (you keep hearing me say that during video). Next flight will be daylight I promise! Am very confident in this plane at this point. Takeoffs are now exciting not terrifying!
  6. This evening was my 'Return to Flight' flight, after an almost eight-month hiatus due to real-life events and a recent PC rebuild. I flew the Icon A5 ('Firehawk' livery) from Pedro Bay (4K0) to Port Alsworth (TPO), two of my favorite destinations in Alaska because of their beautiful scenery and challenging off-the-grid runways. This flight reminded me of what an amazing piece of software 'Flight' is, and how much potential it has with addons and further development! I used 'majuh's' amazing 'Mixed Fair Weather Theme' addon.
  7. HiFlyer posted these earlier tonight regarding the latest images from Microsoft for Flight's Alaska scenery. That scenery is due to be released at some point in the near future. Thanks HiFlyer for posting these. You can view these images and participate in the discussion of Alaska in the Flight Forum. You can find that forum here! Join in!
