Morning Commutes Around The World
By Carrie Sloan
NAME: Lori Michels
PROFESSION: Commercial pilot/guide
LOCATION: Wasilla/King Salmon, AK
"My commute is down to the dock and into the plane. I run a company called Sky Trekking Alaska. We fly every day at 8 a.m. and operate out of the Crystal Creek Lodge, taking guests on expeditions all over the state to go bear-watching or fishing, or to the Iditarod dogsled races. I've known I wanted to be a pilot ever since high school. It's a feeling like no other, like you can do whatever you want-even land on an ocean!"
