I got a sweet opportunity to head to AK for my first time, and in the style of a private plane. it was early season for Haines, Alaska. We were the first ones there, even a couple days before the bird, and were the first ones to fly in the range. opening the range meant easing into things, and not getting on the sickest spines in the zone, and alot of stuff was in the shade all day long anyways. it was such a sick first experience and i cant wait to go back. it was just a taste for me. just the tip.
