Change of plans from Bettles. An outfitter camp was dropped at their preferred location.

Well that speaks well to their ability to spot a good area, a sign of good things to come I think.

Confirmed the boys are in the bush as of last night. Dropped gear and set a basecamp. So far fogged in.

With all the planning that took place.  That must of stung a little.  Gotta make the most of it!  :tup:

The subsistence board closure of a few units threw a wrench into the works for a lot of guys, both otc and guides.
Those two can think on their feet and adapt.

Got an update that the boys were stuck under a tarp yesterday afternoon and werent planning to leave until just before a large storm that was set to hit mid day today. Luckily they didnt have to stay that long and made it back to base camp tired as can be an hour or so ago. Long night in the elements.

Got another update, laying low for 36-48 hours now at base camp. Last night was one of if not the most physicallly demanding events either of those guys have been through. Plenty of time to recover and go do it again.
