Thanks. It's been sitting in my driveway for about a year now waiting on a heart transplant, which should be done by the end of the month. Broke a piston responding to a mission last year.

Thanks. I'm in the process of building a stroker for it, just waiting on some parts issues to be sorted out. Hope to have it back on the road by the end of the month.


Update picture

So there are now 3

You know about this one - 2008 H3 Alpha, 9500 lb winch, front/rear electric lockers, HAM radio, twin Viair compressors and about a ton of gear.

to which has been added a 1971 Toyota FJ40, 350 chevy, 5 speed, one-ton axles with lockers, 12k winch, on-board air, HAM radio, CB radio - if I can't get you in this... well, I don't know what to tell you

the other is a 2014 Jeep Rubicon that's my wife's K9 SAR vehicle. She has bloodhounds and it can carry two in separate cages along with all the gear she might need to head out to the hills for a lost mushroom picker. It, of course, has a full radio package but is otherwise stock (which is pretty capable).

it has twin batteries and the ability to run fans and lights for lots of hours. Next up for it is side-windows that can fold up to increase air flow. I'd love to give it a winch, mild lift and maybe 35s but that would create far more problems then it would solve... so it stays stock, for now.

Preflighting my plane at 3am before going out on a search for a person in the water

Stopped to take a leak... my swimmer is a funny cat


A couple photos from my deployment to Hurricane Harvey.

After my first operational hoist. Rescuing 8 people out of a neck deep flooded out street

Visibility was terrible for much of the first three days what we were conducting rescues

Then we moved over to Port Author

There along with some help from some air force pavehawks we helped move 200 people that were surrounded by6 foot deep water on all sides and had waist deep water in their apartments
