Most of the BFRO members were from the WA-BFRO crew. They had attended
one or both of the 2004 Washington expeditions, and have been exploring
various areas since meeting on those expeditions. Their familiarity
with this part of the peninsula, and the methodologies of the expeditions,
made for a smooth orientation of non-member participants.

typical of BFRO expeditions. Among the group were active duty military
professionals (3), college professors (2), wildlife researchers
(2), authors (2), journalist (1), attorney (1), hunters and trackers
(5), pilots (2), business managers (4), movie actress (1), tattoo
artist (1), bicycle designers (2); and various loggers, fisherman,
truckers, and carpenters.
