I've had a blast following your packing dilemma's. If it helps any, I think your well prepared.
Gotta get real, and keep it basic. You've got...
...everything else is cake.
In my experience, this is the worst time in doing any hunt. The last few hours worrying about what you may have forgotten. The best part (besides deciding basically where and when to hunt) is when you get on the plane, and realize that it's a done deal, and even if you forgot anything, there's nothing you can do about it.
You've got a sattelite phone, and if you need anything important, you can always call your flight service and get it within a day or two. Yep, it will be expensive, but you CAN get whatever you need.
Besides, getting the State of Alaska firearm entry permit was the hardest thing, right?...

Uhhhhh YAH, that thing...
We don't need no STINKING PERMITS !!!
THANx B-dub !! I know I should relax.. BUT I was at the Computer last night thiunking about stuff and Reading posts of everyone leaving on these trips (JB Florida to New Mexico, Tbone for Sheep, Ect..)and it hit me like a ton of brick, I leave in 2 days. I made a few posts and jumped up to go check my list and was Sprinting out when Mr's Moosie was coming in the home office and wondering why I wasn't breathing all that good
For about 2 mins I was in a Panic !!! BUT, Today I feel much better....
Are you getting excited yet? Or are you coming down with the flu?? I'm trying to decide if I should chase bou tomorrow & thrusday or keep my eyes glued to your progress! LOL Not real sure which is more fun!
You have my sympathy for having to go to DMV there in Anchorage. Hope you are lucky with the line.
