Web Editor Note:
After some discussion about the Forest Fire situation in Alaska, it was decided that the VFR aircraft would not venture past Dawson City. The Group had taken the train from Dawson City to Skagway Alaska, so technically did make it to Alaska. It was an incredible adventure.
The trip home from Dawson City was pretty direct, but our team encountered some difficult weather conditions. As of Monday, July 8, 2013, Jim and Tom had made it back to Bar River just outside of Sault Ste. Marie Ontario. Because of the horrid weather in Toronto on July 8, it was not possible for them to make it home on Monday as planned.
As you can see below, Tom made it home late Tuesday. Jim had a business meeting in Quebec City on Tuesday, so decided to fly commercial to that meeting then return to Bar River on Saturday (July 13, 2013) to pick up his plane and fly home.
