    Default Dm 771 wood river

    Gonna fly in to the DM 771 area around 10-11 September if the spousal unit's health stays good. This is essentially the Wood River area south of the Japan Hills. Will be taking in a Cessna 170 with tundra tires. Wondering if anyone knows any decent places to land other than Gold King strip.
    Thanks

    Only strips on the Wood River are private. If your 170 has a 180hp, you could probably find a gravel bar to land on. Some big rocks that can get you in trouble quick if you're not careful/experienced though. I had to fly in twice to haul out buddies that pranged-in trying to land there.
    There's a place to land in Japan Hills too....where Wrights flys into.
