Last week I took the basic mountain canyon flying seminar from Lori MacNichols' school in McCall, ID, which I highly recommend to anyone planning to fly in the the high country. I decided to fly commercially to Boise, drive to McCall and rent Lori's Super Cub rather than fly my Maule MX-7-180 because I was concerned that a weather or maintenance delay during the 4 day flight would cause me to miss the last basic seminar of the year. It was also slightly less expensive to do it this way than flying my own airplane from North Carolina because of fuel prices and lodging along the way.
