That’s great! Did you have to travel there?

I did. The Mrs did the heavy lifting before and during the process including trying to get out of Russia w.o getting our son vaccinated. We feared his immune system might be compromised and wanted to get him home for a medical evaluation.

Flew into Kamchatka via Anchorage - then to Moscow - -NYC and home. Around the world in eight days. One of the two best things I ever did,

Good job. You must have had a real ‘mission accomplished’ feeling when you arrived back home with the boy.

An Internet bud of mine frequently flew into Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky (I think that’s where it must have been looking at Google Earth) and from there to various even more remote destinations via Russian MIL helicopters for fly fishing. Each and every trip was an adventure of some kind frequently involving large bears and erupting volcanoes.

As a sad note, he passed away two months ago via Washington State’s assisted suicide law after being diagnosed with Stage 4 something or other cancer. He checked into the Bellingham hospital and we never heard from him again. Sad on many levels. As an additional incidental the bridge collapse on Interstate 5 last night was about 30 miles south of B’ham. As there are very few alternative routes this will greatly affect Seattle-Vancouver transportation and commerce.
