Midnight Sun fly in July 6-9

Unread postby gear » Mon Apr 10, 2017 11:28 pm

This years Midnight sun fly in is July 6-9 in Yellowknife, NWT, Canada. This will be my fourth one attending and it's a great trip. The scenery on route is unmatched. They only do this every two years and I really look forward to it. We'll be heading up from Winnipeg with 3-4 planes and hope to see some of you there.

The other day a couple of us down south here in Juneau were remembering our summers in Fairbanks. Everyone should experience two weeks of no nights. I remember getting so tired, but so much was going on. I would pass out for two or three hours in the front seat of my truck then get up and get back at it. We would be water skiing and squinting because the sun was on the horizon at 3am.

Diane & I were hoping to make the trip from the left coast,would of been my second trip on webbed feet,first trip was on wheels in the late 90's.
Unfortunately Diane couldn't get the time off,the amphibs aren't installed on the 185 & I just had my right hand repaired by surgery so I'm off work for a bit thus stopping the cash flow.
Last time for me was 2003,had a great time.Got into back bay at 2am & Kirby brought us refreshments & then dropped us at our accomadations.
safe travels.
