Here is the current condition of N42013.  Photo was taken in early July while Laura and I were on our adventure in the North in N6469V.  Sad to see it in this condition.  But it is apparently on its way back to the flight line though the Brooks Range Aviation pilots I spoke with said it had been in this exact condition for at least three years.  The owners of Brooks Range Aviation say it is just getting a new motor.
