New member,
From the mat su valley north of anchorage. Got my wings with a supercub in 2004, haven't piloted since, life got in the way. Now hope to acquire a superstol in the near future, probably build from kit. Joining the forum for help with that and to let you guys convince me I can build it!!! Please do!! I am somewhat mechanically inclined, worked in the oilfield some, a fair amount of engine work and do all my own remodeling, vehicle servicing and the such. I have a hangar now for the project, and live on a short 600' strip that I would like to be able to fly out of. So here goes the next adventure in my life! Anxious to get started. Love the forum so far.. Oh yeah, I hunt and fish and just explore up here as much as a busy life with three kids will allow me to. The kids each hunt too. I plan on using the plane to haul some moose meat and fish after successful hunts!

Welcome! There are a few guys in your neck of the woods flying SuperSTOLs or Highlanders. I thought they would have chimed in here by now but they must be flying. :D

I too am looking at purchasing a SuperSTOL kit soon. Be sure to post a build thread here when you get your kit! You sure are in a beautiful place to fly and you'll really be able to take advantage of the SuperSTOL's capabilities.

Good luck!

Welcome from a SuperSTOL builder in Texas. Last May I took a vacation in Anchorage, and Valdez.

Hey Jud,
Did you make progress on your build plans?
