Looks like some priceless memories just got made. That country looks familiar. In fact, the inside of that plane looks familiar. I believe I was flown out in it just before you arrived. No bull for me. The only legal one I saw was on the day before the season started. Still had a great adventure. My first time in AK. I was also surprised how hard the walking could be in those hellish thickets. That storm that came in 9-6 was also the real deal in our locale. Lasted 2-3 days. Our tipi held up but I wasn't sure it would. Had a backup tent but will upgrade it next time. I rebooked for next year, also calling it "unfinished business". I didn't name the air taxi since you didn't either, but was very impressed with his operation and now consider them friends. Best wishes.
