It’s nice to be flying again. I’m also quite happy that my new base airport is Campbell River or as it’s known in pilot speak “CYBL”.
The area is stunning and the island goes on forever. Across the Salish Sea are a wall of snow-capped mountains that leave little room to penetrate under 8,000 feet.
Campbell Lake is spectacular as well and I hope to get there sometime soon.
The only thing that was negative was having a viewpoint that sees the vast clearcuts of what once was forest. Now just snowpack, spring will melt it off and wash the soil along with it. I wish there was a better way to log but it seems this is one sight that hasn’t changed since I started flying aircraft. Hope one day it will change.
Well… 2018 is well underway, no turning back. But how do we make it through the busy day? Take out of course! In the Comox Valley, there are some daily rituals and they have to be followed in order, or do they? The show is on air this week on ShawTV Channel 4 in the North Vancouver Island region. It can also be found right here!
I made sure that I was in ‘character’ by having a just woke up look with my hair. Seriously, we make every effort to get the realism happening here at ‘the crossroads’! So take out something for yourself! 😉
Well, this episode was fun. Media Relations Officer, Constable Rob Gardner was my guest for this show. What did I miss all these years? Find the show on ShawTV North Island & Powell River.
The show is now on YouTube! Have a watch from right here if you want!
Note: During the show Rob and I talked about an old training video. The link for it is here. I wanted to put some of it on the show however CBC wanted a lot of cash to allow me to use even a few seconds of the clip.
Here are a few more links to videos that were supplied by the RCMP/GRC:
