We operate on a "planes, trains, and automobiles" theory here at Crossings. Due to the vastness of our tripping area we look to a variety of ways to ensure our programs are supported to the max capacity. We have our own boats, the Endeavor and the Seanne Marie, that are utilized for resupplies and group transports, as well as for any special or as-needed trips. Such separate trips may include medical transports for individual students, last minute group needs, or transporting clinicians in and out of the field.
We also use various regional aviation companies for similar reasons. These small, fixed wing float planes are able to access our groups in a quick, timely manner. When a group has an immediate need, we are able to access them on the water.
Occasionally, we may utilize one of several emergency helicopter services in the area so that we may access groups in tight landing spots on the mountains we hike.
