My time here on Protection Island is just now past half over as of July 1st. It is really hard to believe that three months has already passed since I came out here. It has really been quite an experience so far. Not many ever get an opportunity like this and I do realize how fortunate I am to be able to be here.
It has been a whirlwind of exciting things in 2014 for me, and more is yet to happen. Boat training in Pearl Harbor, moving off Dungeness NWR, moving out here, and trying to figure out my next move.
Since I am trying to stay in this area I have started looking for a job to make that possible. I would really like to stay in the natural resources field, but I’m not sure if that’s going to be possible here or not given the job situation though.
