About our Trip!bushplane

We're flying from Anchorage Alaska on down to Reno Nevada for our first stop, before continuing on to fly to all 50 states!  Our trip will last about 2 years, and have us visiting over 400 airports!  We'll post a schedule here on this page in November once we clear the nasty weather in Alaska and Canada and get to the more reliable weather of the Southwest US!
