Lloydminster to Fort Nelson- The Northern Route

A weather day in Lloydminster was made so great by Steve Watt at Border City Aviation. He hooked us up with tools, a hangar, parts, and is just an all around great guy. I called him about 50 miles from Lloydminster as we were in flight and he was there to meet us the first evening and got us all squared away. The next day was snow and just nastiness, so we spent time working on the machines (There is ALWAYS something to be done!)

In the morning sun was in the window, but to the West was the same nastiness as the day before. We hatched a plan to head due North up into the wilds of Canada via Athabasca, Slave Lake, Fort Vermillion, High Level, and then finally to Fort Nelson. Steve sent us off with our Border City Aviation Tuk’s and we were off for the clear blue.

It was a long day and our butts were tired, so a beer and a bed in Fort Nelson was a great end to the day. Here are the day’s photos! Getting closer and closer and it is totally evident as the light of the day really ‘feels’ like the arctic.
