 Q: Hi Steve,

I would like advice on how to best protect my 1975 Cessna 180 if there ever comes a day when I’m caught out in the bush.

You see, I’m planning a month-long flying vacation to Alaska and want to be fully prepared when I launch out next spring. I want to fly to out-of-the-way places and land on unimproved sites but need to know how to make sure my trip isn’t cut short due to airplane damage.

I suspect there are some tricks, but need a little guidance on how to proceed—and if need be, what commercially available aids work best.

—Looking Forward
