Good enough to win the last event of the season. I attribute the victory to my pep talk on 16th tee. No 19th Hole pic, so this note from the Club will have to suffice...

Received this e-mail from Jim as Morpheus set out on her grand journey:
Finally!!! We are within an hour of departure!! Block Island here we come.
Too tired to type much at this point, but we are off to LA and the Cal/USC game! It’s a 50 hour trip and we plan to stop in Santa Barbara to pick up Patrick, so we’ll be moving along
Best way to track our progress….
- 1) Our Blog
- 2) Our SPOT webpage
- 3) AIS – find the online AIS ship tracking site (Bob Gregory provide link) and track us via our callsign wda7721 or boat name.
Ok, that’s it. Time to hit the road!!
This is a screenshot of the SPOT website as Morpheus did a flyby between us and Alcatraz on her way out of the bay:
...Sigrid got some good shots on the fly-by:
Under the gate:
... And out to sea.
No telling when we will next see Morpheus in San Francisco Bay. I'll see if I can get the SPOT widget in the sidebar to track their journey as we intend to join them along the way.
Someday and somewhere
Bon Voyage my friends.

For our last and only bonfire of the trip, Brian built another of his one match masterpieces out of scrounged wood in limited time. Tomorrow we leave for the season with an uncertain renovation. Family and friends from around he country joined the campfire via laptops comforably seated around the fire.
When last seen on this blog, the '97 was inspected by Ishpeming Wilderness Sports, where we learned it's identity and age. The gun was proclaimed in excellent condition, but we decided to ignore their advice to hang it on a wall as a collector's item. We just don't think grandpa would have wanted it that way. We did take their advice and procured low pressure ammo appropriate for a vintage century old shotgun. Polywad was our on-line source for the "Vintager" hand loads. Good outfit, good ammo.
After a thorough cleaning, we took the '97 out to our Escanaba River property to shoot clay pigeons and hunt for grouse. This was the first proper firing of the shotgun.
We flushed 4 or 5, but...
... hitting a moving grouse proved to be even more difficult than a thrown skeet.
But a great day for a a walk in the woods and hunting with a piece of history.
