Chicken Strip Husky

My boss has a Maule and has flown to, but never landed at, the Chicken Strip in Saline Valley. He came with me in my new Husky, and we landed easily, walked the strip, and he saw it was plenty long enough. Today he went and landed in his Maule, but this pic is of him by my Husky.
