I'm in the process of reading your book Flying the Alaska Wild, and in it you briefly talked about a Doc Romig who had built a hunting cabin out in the bush, and then you mentioned that he had removed his own appendix with a hunting knife. I got kind of curious about this and wanted to find out more about it, so I started looking around the net. The only Dr. I can find out about that ever removed his own appendix was a Soviet doctor stationed in Antarctica in 1961. Can you point me to any more information about the circumstances of this Doc Romig removing his appendix? I ran across a little information about him but it mentioned nothing about him removing his own appendix.
