Hope this hunt is all that you've dreamed and prepared for.

Your pack list includes "cross." IDK if that was: a) "crocs" misspelled, b) you plan to pray a lot, or c) you plan to crucify something. If b or c, please post pics.

And we will need an update on whether you can still out-wrestle/fight/run/pack Michael.
Definitely supposed to be "crocs"  :chuckle:

Well the drive over the hill was nice. 405 was terrible. Flight to fairbanks was uneventful. Kinda funny...while waiting for our plane a guy on our flight sits down next to us. Bit of small talk and he notices our memorial bracelets for Aaron. Turns out he is also an apache pilot and served with Aaron with the 10th mountain. 

It's 0235 now and Wright doesn't open till 0730 so we've staked our claim to some lobby benches for a few hours of sleep.

I think big brother Aaron is with you guys even more than usual. Get the mosquito nets ready boys, won't be long now.
Kindly do not attempt to cloud the issue with too many facts.

Get 'em, Karl!

Late friend from Glenallen always told me about taking 1/4 of a washcloth, and 1/2 a bar of hotel soap, etc... I enjoyed the memory of his Dall Sheep stories while looking at your lists!
