    Thanks for the offer! We are already up in Cranbrook, BC. We had originally gone into Yellowstone through the north east entrance, then left out the south, went back in from the south, out the north central entrance and then back in and out again through the north west exit :) We used the north exit to go to Bozeman, MT to catch the chopper. So far we have put on about 3300km :)

    The trip ended up being 4150km in a 9 days. Awesome experience!

    I have ~60 pictures loaded up on my website :) Check them out when you get bored!

    Kind of a crap picture but you get the idea :)

    Had the crew take the door off of the helicopter. The one we took was a bell R44. I use Nikon gear. Those would have been with a D800e and D700 using either a 28-70f2.8 nikkor or the 70-200f2.8 VRII nikkor. The D800e was on a rapid strap and the D700 was around my neck.

    Thanks! I always wanted to document the "big" build :) It never ceases to amaze me that no matter how big and cool one persons build is..... there is ALWAYS a bigger, cooler build lol! Like hey, I need to build a wall.... then the next build is hey, I need to build a whole new house for the tank!

    I am having issues with my 220v breaker kicking out and leaving my circulation pumps off. Problem is I don't know if it's a faulty GFCI breaker or the Abyzz pumps malfunctioning. And currently it's completely random. Any ideas on how I can test for either specifically? I have an electrician coming in to check the breaker and the load on the circuit.
