Re: [SeaScoutShip212] Runner Update #9
I got this message from Dom about an hour ago because I've without power since 10:30 PM Friday night. Just got it back along with the internet about an hour ago. How did they do through the storm? Are they all home by now?

We are anchored off entrance to port tobacco river about 14 miles south of Aquia landing. We had a quick swim call and a feast of garlic shrimp, garlic bread, Caesar salad, corn on the cob, baked potatoes and rib eye steaks topped off by Dutch apple pie and chaco tacos. We plan to arrive ooa 1200 sat but will need at least an hour to clean boat. Expect your sea scout to be tired, a little burnt but very happy to have made this journey. I'm sure glad I did. The best compliment a sailor can make of another sailor is to say that he would sail thru hell on a gasoline barge with him. I certainly feel that way abt our sea scouts. They have been an absolute pleasure to lead and I am very very proud of what they accomplished this year.
