Change of Command

Master Chief Petty Officer Pete Janusch, officer in charge at U.S. Coast Guard Station Chetco River, and his wife, Michelle Meihsner, receive a salute from the station crew as they leave. Janusch retired from a 30-year career in the Coast Guard and plans to move for the Humboldt County area in California. Janusch has been replaced by Senior Chief Petty Officer Kirk McKay as officer in charge of the station.

Under a steady drizzle of rain, Coast Guard Officer in Charge (OIC) Pete Janusch “passed across the bow and headed ashore,” relieved of his duties after 30 years with the maritime military service.

Boatswain’s Mate Senior Chief Kirk W. McKay will take over Janusch’s duties at the U.S. Coast Guard Station Chetco River.

The End of the Journey

A lonely bench provides a place to enjoy the scenery and solitude along the grassy trail at Windy Point. The bench is one of at least two in Boardman State Park — another overlooks Lone Ranch Beach on Cape Ferrelo. Photo and story by Gabe Chatman.

Whether you’ve been reading along with me or you just picked up a paper today, thanks. It is bittersweet to have finally found the end — or the beginning — of the Samuel Boardman trail system. 

I enjoyed hiking every section from Lone Ranch Beach to Hooskanaden Beach. I hope you had as much fun reading as I did writing. And if one person, just one, was inspired enough to hike after having read what I wrote: mission accomplished!

Sometime I’d like to hike it all in one day. For funsies. That would really be something. Would you look at that?
