Stuck


This is where I've been the past week, Gambell, an island in the Bering Sea.  It also happens to be one of my regular & favorite places too. There aren't too many times when I haven't been weathered in. Stormy, stuck but also a gem to test a few pieces of new gear.  There aren't too many places I've experienced so rugged and harsh of a climate.  When the weather cleared it was still blowing well over 30 mph, I wish I took video of unloading loading the plane while the pieces of cargo blowing across the runway. To fly in here is not for the faint of heart or the novice, only the pros tackle this place regularly & safely.  Glad to be home though!
