Gregg and Hans Tour Alaska

A Bettles Helio Courier waiting to launch.

The Bettles Fire Department.

Papa Zulu off in the distance. We tried to walk around the town of Bettles, but realized that the town was basically the airport.

Met David Pippert from South Dakota. He was travelling through the Arctic for the summer with his girlfriend, Megan. David's plane is the silver one off in the distance. It is a Zenith Stol CH 701. He built it with his father and has flown it back and forth between the states and Alaska a few times.

Getting camp set up in Bettles. We could have camped out on the front lawn of the Bettles Lodge, but we chose the rocky gravel ramp for some reason.
