Marine rescue operation
As part of my training i participated in a marine rescue operation (MRO) drill. The u.s. and Canadian coast guards were there along with emergency response teams from all over the world. Basically we all got on a boat, were told who had injuries and what they were. then the rescue operators did what they were trained for. It was alot of fun and i got paid to do it. After that i took a long hike out of ketchikan, down the road and to the beach. I collected a few rocks and stumbled on a part of the beach where all kinds of metal things had washed up. I call it "DEATH BEACH." I know it sounds hardcore but it has to have a hardcore name in one of the most hardcore places in the world... ALASKA!!!
