Guys, I'm starting a new series as I explore all the uncharted bush resupply strips in the pacific northwest. This is part I. This can get exciting, even on my desktop. Sometimes it's hard to find these strips because they are built into the terrain. They have high trees around them and are very unimproved with rough surfaces on sloping and uneven terrain, not to mention how short they are. Please enjoy the trip with me.
We're winding down a glacier fed river valley. At the bottom, it's a fjord all the way.
At the bottom near the pacific ocean shore is a cabin and hunting estate only served by air. It's a beautiful coastal strip that lands uphill.
We're down! The beaver comes in real slow and gets down fast. No time for a fancy wheel landing like I'd prefer in this heavy offshore wind, we just plop her on and get on the brakes.
The takeoff went fairly easy because of the downhill slope and less cargo. I made a hard bank left to avoid overflying the main cabin 50 feet up with the radial barking at full blast.
Stay tuned for part II! we're going to get into strips much worse shortly.
