And Now For Something Completely Different...

Sitting here in Boise and thought I'd put together a short video of some old stuff from when I was working up on Denali.

Elko to Boise

The Seismic job in Elko is all done now and I had a good time with the Heli-Port Drill and Dawson crews.

Now I'm off to Boise for some scheduled maintenance on the SA315B Lama.

A Kodak moment prior to leaving Elko.


Capt. Dalton. She's stuck in "stuck wings", but don't worry, I'm working hard to bring her to the Dark Side!




A couple of cool views of the canyons just south of Boise.

From Fires to Seismic

Well the fire season is over for me and the lama. It was short, but I met a lot of great people and made many new friends.

We're now in Elko Nevada finishing up on a seismic job for a Texas company named Dawson. Since we've arrived we've moved 4 sets of drills, compressors and baskets about 200 times and moved about 300 bags of seismic gear up and down the lines.

This video is not that exciting. Just a short "in cabin" view of a short flight.
