Life as a flight paramedic....part deux

After several people demanding more photos.......uh........well.......ok.......a few one of my boys said, "Dad why didn't you put pictures of snow in Bethel on the blog?"

A few pics of Bethel.

A few of our villages.
Fall on the Kuskokwim River.

Our Caravan.

Some times we will ramp transfer our patients so that they will get to Anchorage quicker. 

Ramp transfer from the Caravan to the King Air in one of our villages

Our local Alaska National Guard Blackhawk. They will fly us when the weather or runway conditions are too bad for the Caravan.

It was a little icy on this day.

 Ok, now for some snow.

And ice.

The Kuskokwim River is used as a highway in the winter when the ice is thick enough.

We often are transported by snowmachine.

Drying and storing firewood for the winter.

Sometimes it gets too cold even for our equipment.  This was after about 15 minutes in minus 45 degrees F.


 A few of the people that I have the privilege to work with and serve.


 The Dragon Slayers.

We love our Dragon Slayers!
