Alright!, so friday at about 1530 I Finished the last 1.9 in GKVH, our BIII.


The last 12 hours were spent in and out of confined areas, longlining with both the empty hook, many, many emergencies, and my personal favorite, possibly the highest stress I have ever been under in an aircraft...



Wendell's truck, Wendell's quad, Wendell's Helicopter.


Although surprisingly easier then I expected it to be, I wouldn't call it at all easy by any stretch of the imagination. I've found even more respect for precision longlining.




Now for the hard part! This week I'm back in Penticton renewing my first aid and some other peripherals befor heading out to find that first job.


Thanks again to everyone whos helped me out along the way, I'm looking forward to working with some of you in the very near future.

Congrats once again Cole, It's been a pleasure to read your blog, brought back memories of my own training (wow I'm starting to sound like a old guy).


Best of luck in your career, tho I'm sure you will go as far as you want to, The world is your oyster, (insert some more inspirational quotes here haha) I know you will do very well in this industry, Good Luck on the next part of the adventure.
