Conair was providing the fixed wing aerial support for fire fighting. They had two Convair CV580 hauling 2100 gallons of retardant, and an Aero Commander 690 directing traffic.
Bell 412 helicopters dipping up to 360 gallons of sea water from Turnagain Arm to drop on hot spots.
We spent the night at the city park in Seward where nearly every spot was full. Prices have gone up to $20 since BJ and I stayed there three years ago.
Russian River Campground. This is a very popular campground (no hookups), especially during the salmon season. We would have stayed longer but the campground was fully booked.
The fishing wasn't successful this trip, but the weather was great and it was really nice to spend some time with a couple more generations.
