@kevinoaks from our site sponsor @seareyaircraft is sending back photos like this from the #Searey fly-out to the Bahamas. It's just not fair.

Insanely nice wx here in the Portland area today. #rans #bushcat

Amateur tip: Don't ever try to do an interview/storytelling session after several White Russians and an IPA if you want something coherent.

#akbushwheels...handmade by Alaskan rubbersmiths. 😎 Pretty cool to watch one go together.

A 30-hour stay in Alaska and all I got was 4" of snow. When I flew out the next morning, the sky was clear and sunny. Gambled and lost. #cessna170 #winterinalaska

Winter has arrived at #LakeHood...

I love my @pelicanprofessional gear but it still doesn't solve the problem of just how light to pack for 30-hour one-man surgical strike trips.

Evan Robinson's High Sierra 2018 report is up on the homepage, complete with some amazing shots and a humble greenhorn pilot's insight. Link in profile if you don't have it bookmarked 😎 📷 @ev.robinson

The moon will be #waxinggibbous this weekend; great time to set up your tripods and shoot some longer exposures in that cool light. #cessnaskywagon #skywagon #highsierraflyin #hsf

High Sierra is less than a week away... #Cessna #Skywagon #mtpropeller #akbushwheels #parallax @stolpilot
