The moose is all packaged and the leaves are almost gone. We are expecting a killing frost any night now. The list of projects that must be completed before winter arrives is slowly getting shorter. We will let you know how we progress.
We are still in the process of changing the website. It has been a long process and with a busy Summer it has taken much longer to do than expected. Hopefully you have been keeping up with the pictures and our status updates on FaceBook. We will be adding more content as time allows.
The Civil Aviation Authority China (CAAC) ,their version of our FAA, was in Alaska visiting this week. They had a lot of the same type questions the Russians did. It has been fun to be a part of the meetings. It is neat to see their desire to have a thriving General Aviation sector to their economy.
I went for a boat ride with a friend to test the engine and came home with a moose!
Rob and I have been running down a few electrical problems with his boat lately. We had finally gotten to the point that we just needed to take it for a test drive to see if we had fixed the issues. We decided to go up river. You never go down river when testing a boat! With it being moose season you don’t go anywhere without your rifle either.
After we had stopped to tighten a few things and walking in the woods for a bit we decided that we should head back home. Along the way home Rob spotted a bull on the banks and so into the woods we went again. The wind was blowing real hard and I thought for sure the moose didn’t hang around. After a bit I started to hear tree branches knocking out of rhythm with the wind and sure enough there he was staring at me 20 yards away!
As I looked at him I tried to remember what the regulations were about legal size on this side of the river. It just so happened that I had the regulations in my back pocket. So with this bull moose trying to figure out where I was, I was reading the book and trying to figure out if I could shoot him. I settled to question quickly and shot him!
