Say goodbye

This morning starting at 4:00 am Alaska Standard Time , Cindy, Todd and myself loaded up our trucks with 18 of the OBS eagles and headed to the airport. Ocean Beauty Seafood paid for the return freight of the eagles to Kodiak.

At that same time, Greg MacDonald was checking in at Alaska Airlines passanger terminal. OBS paid for him to travel there to assist with the releases and over see the birds safety and well being until they were released.

I'll have more for you from Kodiak after Greg gets back.

How far is Kodiak from Anchorage?

Dave said...

Diane - 249 as the eagle flies. No roads connect Kodiak and Anchorage, it's an island.

Hi Dave,
Sorry I haven't taken the time to visit recently, but what good news that some of your eagles are well enough to head back to Kodiak. That must be a pretty rewarding feeling. Thanks and congratulations to you and your staff and volunteers for all the extra effort.

Ruthiej- We have a great crew and the extra effort came natural. I've been a litte busy myself and not making it around to all of the blogs. Thanks for your support!

That's awesome that OBS is stepping up for these eagles.

*And I am totally insulted that you don't visit my blog more often. You'd think you had more important STUFF to do*

: )

Dave said...

Susan - it is awesome and they have stepped up more than once.

Nothing is more important than visiting you on your blog. :)
