We try to visit Ryan each summer and spend at least a couple of nights - it has become a very special place to our family. It is also a great “hub” for the more remote airstrips in the area. Spotted Bear, Meadow Creek, and Schafer are all nearby and accessible to a RV. And I will second Pete’s suggestion that we support the RAF and the good work they do. This is an all-volunteer organization supported and sustained by the backcountry pilot community.

Default Why we like it here

Now you know why we like it here. Just don't tell anyone as it's starting to get crowded.
On that note, Montana was recently declared to be full but I hear North Dakota is nice and still has room.

I don't have that many years left which is OK with me because maybe I can be reincarnated with Pete Howell's life.
