Drones Seized in Guyana

When I kickstarted this blog back to life a few months ago I promised regular content updates, a podcast and vlog. Those last two are coming – I promise. As part of that first one I am going to also be writing about my drone work with the company I own, Aerial Resources Group, LLC.Continue reading “Drones Seized in Guyana”

Riding the Hiawatha Trail

One of the best things about living in the Pacific Northwest is the outdoor activities, all year long. We have boating, hiking, biking, camping, swimming, climbing, skiing, everything. If there’s a sport and a season, we have it. The Hiawatha Trail is one of those exciting activities you just have to do if you’re upContinue reading “Riding the Hiawatha Trail”

Tarpon Rodeo – Grand Isle, LA (PICS)

As I was wrapping up a few extra days of workover here in Louisiana I found out that I was going to be down here during the world famous Tarpon Rodeo fishing derby that takes place every year. Though I was not able to go and actually participate (and party) because I was on dutyContinue reading “Tarpon Rodeo – Grand Isle, LA (PICS)”

Gulf Of Mexico: Operation Turtle Watch

The day to day routine of a helicopter pilot flying in the Gulf of Mexico does not suffer from having “too much” variety in it. Once you’re assigned to a job, and have flown that contract for awhile, you’ll essentially figure out the routine and settle into a nice pattern. The only time that reallyContinue reading “Gulf Of Mexico: Operation Turtle Watch”

Gulf of Mexico: Life Off-Shore (Pics)

First of all I want to say thank you to everyone that’s been reading the latest posts, commenting, and messaging. Some loyal readers that had been waiting in the wings for me to start putting content back out – and some new readers! Welcome! I’ve been getting questions about certain aspects of being a helicopterContinue reading “Gulf of Mexico: Life Off-Shore (Pics)”

Weather in the Gulf of Mexico (Pics)

This is one I’ve been meaning to write since I started flying off-shore. It’s a topic I get questions about from time to time, and one that is worth mentioning. What is the weather like in the Gulf? How do you plan, fly, and work with it? Now that may seem like a ridiculous questionContinue reading “Weather in the Gulf of Mexico (Pics)”

Flying in the Gulf of Mexico (Pics)

Even though I haven’t been writing for the past year and a half (give or take) I still get messages on this site, instagram, and on Facebook. It’s been a long time since I managed any helicopter pilot groups on FB so that last one is a bit of a mystery to me. Let’s rollContinue reading “Flying in the Gulf of Mexico (Pics)”

Start. Stop. Start. Stop….Start?

So here we are again, a year between posts and I’m writing that I’ll do better, I’ll post regularly, I’ll stay more involved in the blog process. We’ve been here before. This past year has certainly been an interesting one, and there are a few reasons why “the roaming pilot” hasn’t been roaming much atContinue reading “Start. Stop. Start. Stop….Start?”

Palouse Falls, WA (Pics + Video)

Being back in the United States for a bit has been fun, especially being able to spend time at home exploring my own backyard – the Pacific Northwest. A couple weeks ago I set out on an ambitious hike up Caribou Ridge to the summit of Mt. Coeur d’Alene. The rumor was that there wasContinue reading “Palouse Falls, WA (Pics + Video)”
