Search & Rescue .. .. ..

In Barrow.. .. was disptached to Point Hope, hundreds of miles away. Apparently the ice had cracked, and broke, many miles, behind the hunters and the camp sites out on the ocean ice. No one was aware. The lead had opened, on the wrong side of the ice, everyone was drifting out to sea, totally unaware that they were now, stranded, no way to get back. The helicopter from Barrow saved the day &  evacuated everyone safely !!

The entire North slope Works together as one. In any emergency or disaster. I have never seen people that get along so well with each other from village to village, The Inupiaq people are the most special caring lovng people I have ever met.  This is the reason that keeps me here living.. .. ..here,

 High in the Arctic with  Eskimo’s. !!
