It was an exciting week here in the North Country. We spent two days flying out major supplies and tools to the back country sites that we'll be working on this summer (since, you know, it wouldn't be fun to carry 4800 pounds of bog bridging lumber out on your back in addition to everything else). And let's be honest, working with a helicopter was pretty amazing. Words of the day were windy and strong.
It is quite a well choreographed operation (thanks to Hawk) to make best use of helicopter time. It takes a lot of people, and also a lot of driving, waiting, hauling, and loading. We had fantastic weather for a long first day, and finished up early on the second. Now, back to the non-airborne part of spring here. Staff are arriving, and we're excited for the summer! See you soon--
