That's great flygirl. I once went up in a single engine Tomahawk over New Orleans. It was down right scary, like a kite with an engine. It was my uncle's idea, he wound up taking flying lessons and convinced me to tell the guy I was interested as well. They only had single engines available so we each went up in one with an instructor. My instructor was nuts for letting me fly that plane, can't believe I'm still alive after that. You will have different challenges keeping bees in Alaska, I'm sure. That looks like a cool beekeeping club Michael posted. Good luck with your bees and the flying. Hey, you could have liked flies, you never know.
