Anybody want to show up on Friday the 20th of February? We're having a lot of school kids come through...hopefully. Anyone that wants to participate in our living history weekend that weekend is welcome as well. Just contact me off the forum for info or go to www.ss310.com.

I would join up and do it if only thr military had long hair. ;) I could always go for a Women's Auxiliary and put it in a bun. That's a little Klinger though. ;D

How long are we talking? Like two months long or two years long? Two months long would be about right but much longer than that would be a stretch.

Well, it's almost time for the next living history weekend. Anyone wanting to come out and support the event is more than welcome. August 13th and 14th (Friday and Saturday) with some work being done on Sunday I suspect. ;)

I think I remember you guys being tin the radio shack on one event weekend (Feb 2008?), but it wasn't part of our tour.  So, this will be a first.  Normally, we have the same CW tape playing over and over and over...  I think it will be a real treat to hear static crashes, odd noises and other CW contacts that you encounter while changing frequencies, etc.

We're slowly bringing her back to life.  Supposedly, a groan was heard out of the old girl when she was decommissioned.  Not sure if it's true or just more sailor lore.  ;-)

In reguards to the goran.  This is a true story as relayed by Dennis.   

I hope that the old girl starts to feel like she has a new family...

She once again has a loving crew that hopes to breathe life back into her. I call her my mistress and my wife tends to agree. ;D

Yeah, I believe the upgrade took care of most of the bugs. This model doesn't burst into flames at the mention of Batfish...or Fort Gibson...or when I breathe improperly and it's a LOT more user friendly. In about 40 days I'll have the sales receipt. Hope you can be there when I officially buy it.
