Just how badly do you want to get there?

This is a view of the Reeve Aleutian Airways plane that brought myself and the new Chief Petty Officer to our new assignment. We got stuck here at Cold Bay, Alaska for a few days, and it took 3 attempts to land at Cape Sarichef, because of bad weather. This is the last town on the Alaskan penninsula before it breaks off and becomes the Aleutian islands chain. As I recall, this small town was mostly fishermen and eskimos, and they treat Coast Guardsmen very well. They bought us more beers than we could possibly consume. The very friendly Mayor/Bartender even had me call home on his nickle.
