During the 2 hour mail run we saw a very nice black bear and circled it a few times. I saw one moose and the pilot (Thane) saw 2 or 3 others. Thane has been up here 15 years from Oregon and has two planes of his own. Definitely loves the far north and what he does.

The Kuskokwim River has a pretty good salmon run. My son was supposed to do some commercial fishing out in the Kuskokwim Bay a few years ago. You are just a little south or the Iditarod trail. Some hunting and fishing camps are set up better that those tiny bush villages.

EDIT: I think Jos Block is Chuathbaluk.

Exactly!!!
Actually, I bunked out at my outfitters uncle's house last night. All the boarding rooms were taken, so I bought groceries for the house....including dessert. Filled up his teenage sons car with gas......all while waiting on the gear to show up over the last 24+ hours.
