9/10/06 - Arrived in ANC at 9 p.m. after an unexpected stop during my flight from Lafayette, LA to re-fuel. Checked into the Barratt Inn and was met by Wildone for dinner and a beer.
9/11/06 - Caught a flight at 8 a.m. to Galena on Frontier Flying. Arrived in Galena and was met at the airport by "Brownie". After arriving at Brownie's house, we gathered our gear and departed for DM817. Wildone was on the 1st flight out and then me. Upon arrival, we immediately set up camp and our kitchen. When we landed on the lake, there was a cow feeding about 300 yards from where we set up camp. First thought...we'll have our bulls in a few days.
