    Great time to fly. Airports are empty flights are cheap. Planes clean and deserted, less disease out there than usual.
    $270 Denver to Cordova on a privavte jet.

    I do that flight daily at 23,000ft and sometimes much lower in our Pilatus.......

    Well, we used to do it daily before Covid-19 destroyed the healthcare system.

    If I would have sold my place in 2019 I could just jet up for a month.

    i guess i was trying to figure out if that was the intake into the lake, or the outflow. i thought it was the entrance, but wondered if you had a photo of the other side as well so it would make more sense to me. looked way different when we flew over.
    we went down in september, obviously it was sick.

    obviously no big deal so dont waste anytime digging for photos

    For that aerial view the inlet is middle left and the outlet is low left.. obviously super low with the ice.. cool to see it froze up. I got to tag along on an alsec trip in '17, I can dig up some pics

    Yep, you guest workers and fkn snowbirds in CDV are the Test.
    If y'all fuck it up, Bristol Bay can't happen.
    That being said, you need to be able to work on your gear if you test clean and have no symptoms...Maybe they need an ankle bracelet system for the Chileans?
