    Pretty cool little airplane! That's a Kitfox, isn't it? Did he build it himself?

    Very nice. We will be there 28 days, coming home Father's Day.

    It's an Avid MK5 I believe, but I think he told me Kit Fox either bought Avid or the other way around. I'm not very knowledgeable about planes compared to you guys.
    He bought the plane built, but has since totally rebuilt it. Some things that he's done that I know of are; lengthen the fuselage and the wings. Changed the two stroke out for a Subaru fuel injected. Changed the tail wheel and suspension, plus put the over sized tires on. He re-skinned and painted it throughout the whole process also. I think there's a bunch more that I can't remember. He is great at that kind of thing and would fly every day if he could I think . He built himself a really cool hanger at Wolf Lake too.

    I thought if CC was still up when I was, I might try to arrange to buy coffee for you two. That would be kind of cool to meet both of you! I bet CC will love it up there, I sure do. It's nice that you'll get to show him around and hang out some.

    Here's one of my favorite hunting pics from one of my many adventures in AK. I can't wait to see CC's pics!

    That is great! If you're around the Mat-Su Valley area I'd buy you coffee/breakfast, just to get to hang out and meet you. Hope you have a blast!

    Just make sure that you are practiced up on that new smart phone and can get us updates while sipping on that morning coffee or evening cocktails.

    Check out taptalk for access to the forum.

    Have a fantastic time, I am envious of you.
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost....

    I am getting pretty good with the phone. I am also taking my laptop and if I can get a decent WiFi signal, I'll be online too. Havn't done any taptalk yet.
