I took the moose meat to air cargo this morning to send to Juneau. It took an hour and a half to get it booked. not that I was in a hurry.
Pro Tip: AK Air club 49 members can send up to 100 lbs of cargo anywhere AK Air flies in the state for $49.
I was slightly over 100 lbs because we used a luggage scale that obviously wasn’t precise and that created problems charging for the first 100 lbs at the special rate and the 7 extra pounds at regular rate.
Next time, I’ll put the meat on the scales at airfreight and then add or take out meat to get it to 99 lbs and that will make it easier on everyone.
Doug, Ashley, Val and I left for a picnic an hour later. We ran snow machines upriver about 20 miles to a tributary of the Kuskokwim River and had lunch there. We cooked moose brauts and reheated pizza over a birch fire for lunch, with a PBR. Then I took a nap in the sun. A perfect afternoon.
