Safe trip guys and gal!

Had hoped they would be at coffee, but alas no one really was. Looking forward to hearing about this trip.

Talking Uncle's Sunday update and location...

Don't forget to try the (3) options in the upper R/H corner of the terrain map.
Satellite shows minimal cloud cover.
Looks nice.

Just saw this and if you can get word to your friends on their way to Alaska let them know the ALCAN is closed in the Yukon Territory.
