I will be out of my office traveling on business today, Thursday June 16th. I will not be returning emails until this evening. I you need immediate assistance, please call Christi at (918) 630-1942 as she can help you with your needs.
Hope everyone is excited for the Wrangell Park Fly-In this weekend! Sounds like weather is going to be excellent so no excuses not to come if you can get away! Bring the family, bring a friend, bring the dog, or just come by yourself!
While I may possibly be heading out Thursday evening, the plan is for everyone to meet up on Friday at May Creek (MYK). For those of you that haven't been to the park before, it is roughly a 2 hour flight from Anchorage to May Creek. I would plan to make a quick stop in Gulkana and fill up at the self service fuel pump. That will give plenty of fuel for any playing on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. If anyone gets in a fuel bind then there are options and I plan to carry a couple fuel bags with me as well. But again, best practice is to stop in Gulkana first.
Plan is to tent camp by our planes on the grass strip so bring your best tent and sleeping bag. As for food and drinks, please plan to bring enough for your party. I'm fairly certain that no one will go hungry if something gets left behind but always nice to have options. I am bringing a grill and small coleman stove and happy to share everything I have. There is a creek close by so if you run low on water its a short hike to re-supply. There is a public use cabin and outhouse there as well.
I will be around tomorrow and Thursday so if anyone has any last minute questions, call me on my cell. AT&T coverage doesn't typically work out there but Verizon sometimes does. I have also included my satellite phone number in the event that we're already in the park with no coverage.
Here's to a great showing and safe flying!!!
