DeHavilland Beaver... The work horse of the Bush

 The Pilot dropped off the crew on the heli pad Bryan had packed in front of the Lodge and then taxied back out to the strip .... but now he had to go off the packed strip and turn around.  Boy, was that engine roaring and the snow was flying...  and look at the overflow he was going thru.

If you look real hard you can see the big Lodge down the far away shore on the right of center.

Now with going thru that overflow and then sitting for 4 1/2 hours it was glued to the strip.  We could see Chris pumping up the skiies to try to break the bond.  Then his engines were roaring, snow was flying behind him and still no movement.  Finally it broke free and off they went.  

Remember to keep voting.  Only 7 more days of this...   push the 5th heart for Bryan's granddaughters Stamp design  


  1. Hey Bryan I recognize that brown parcel you are holding, hopefully it arrived in good shape for you.

  2. Not to be nit-picky, but its the DeHavilland Beaver. DeHavilland was the manufacturer of this iconic aircraft, as well as the Otter, Caribou, Twin Otter etc.
    Have a great day.
    PS, I am truly amazed at the overflow this year. I see you are getting it as well. Lakse we use for access to our line are covered in it where its usually not a problem. Early cold conditions are to b;ame, drying out and shrinking the ice, opening up cracks and allowing the water to seep up.


Glad to hear from you. There is a time lapse for Moderation.
