Default The Adventures of Mike & Curtis: Part 4

[img2="left"][/img2]Mike and Curtis decided that they wanted to fly fish the Alaskan wilderness again this year. They got a pilot to fly them into the far north to one of the best Alaskan trout streams.

They were quite successful in their venture and kept a huge amount of fish. The pilot came back, as arranged, to pick them up. They started loading their gear into the plane, including the many large bags of fish. But the pilot objected and said, "My plane can only handle a certain amount of weight. You two are pretty big ol’ boys… so with all of your gear and all that fish… I'm afraid the plane can’t handle it." He then said "You can only load two bags of fish... you will have to leave the rest behind for the bears." Mike and Curtis both argued with the pilot. Mike said, "the year before we kept this many fish and the pilot allowed us to put them all on board." "Yea… and the plane was the same model and capacity as this one" said Curtis.

Reluctantly, the pilot finally permitted them to put all the fish on board. But when they attempted to take off, and leave the valley, the little plane could not make it and they crashed into the wilderness.

Climbing out of the wreckage, Mike asked Curtis, "Do you know where we are?" "I think so," replied Curtis. "I think this is about the same place where we crashed last year!"
