my last rappel crew

From Schmidt & Weston blog

reat jobs are hard to find, but this one was pretty great. A good day at work looked just like this photo. We would practise rappelling out of the helicopter, eat lunch, fly around looking for forest fires in the mountains, land by a stream, eat another lunch and then sit around for the afternoon by a stream drinking coffee and waiting for something to happen. Sometimes nothing would happen for days. Also, you get to hang out with these guys. Except for those two weeks where we landed in a bug infested swamp and then had to walk through waist deep frozen muskeg, it was a good summer.

Thank you for visiting. I live in Vancouver now, but I've lived in other places too. I take photos and make short films about things and people. Please comment and be argumentative. It amuses me.
