Found a photo that I had given to Supercub.org. It is from a trip to the Wrangells last fall that I took with Pierre Josefsohn and Chris Hodel. One of the most beautiful places in Alaska.

Our friend Ben Stedman was in Seldovia with his mother hanging with Ben's sister Lisa. Ben and his mom needed a lift from Seldovia to Homer and were planning on taking the ferry, but Amanda and I decided to fly them back in the Skywagon. We get to Seldovia and start packing everything into the plane. Luggage, bags, cooler with fish, computer, oh...and a bicycle. Ben's mom sat in the front with me. Amanda and Ben sat in the back. The baggage area was filled to the ceiling with stuff. The plane has never been so full. I guess it's true what they say about Skywagons: "if you can fit it in, it will fly."
Took the skywagon to Seldovia last May with Geno and Judy Rohl. They are flying in their new-to-them Cessna 180.

Amanda and I went to Homer for the weekend with Hans and Mikki. While in Homer we met our friends George and Charlie for breakfast. We mentioned to them that we were trying to get to Seldovia but that the ferry schedule wasn't working in our favor. George offered to fly us to Seldovia in their brand new Bell 407 helicopter.
Here is George, the copilot. His wife Charlie was our official pilot.
Mikki and Amanda getting ready for the flight. Excited?
