Awesome pictures! Can't wait to come up. We expect to be there May 31st. Unfortunately, we aren't bringing our boat. We're bringing someone else's. The scenery looks beautiful!! Being a Florida native, air boating and that much ice is a bit out of our comfort zone. It's a 4,800 mile drive, so sure hope we don't forget anything !! Have room in the truck to carry airboat parts if anybody up there needs something from down here.

You are going to need to demo that new boat for a few days before you deliver it to your customer. The glacier ride shown above is only a few miles out of Palmer where you will be. Bud

I already got that covered. I'm putting a zipper in the shrink wrap. The owner will never even know. The boat doesn't come with a frog chute, so I'm leaving my gigs at home.
I'm not really sure how to drive an airboat with snowshoes! It might look weird to the local air boaters, :dontknow: but I'll be practicing this weekend in Okeechobee.
