It's getting close! (I'm here, Tom S., never fear...)
Hopefully will be able to post some pics tomorrow or Monday...I can't figure out how to get my photos on the forum! Help! I've tried to 'attach' a pic but it doesn't seem to work for me. Can anyone shed light on this?

Thanks,

Lisa

I don't know bout you all...but this suspense is starting to kill me! Afterall, you're looking at a guy who found this woman interesting since grade school, and has been a part of the forum for many years. Like so many of you...I've had alot of late nights and alot of early mornings ponderin on certain questions and theories that have been brought to play! Overall, its brought us together as a group to solve the greatest mystery of all time. I think Ric needs to place a clock in the upper hand corner of the website. Kinda of like the liftoff clock at Cape Canaveral. Anyway, whatever the outcome and I can honestly say that its been alot of fun over the years!!! In the coming days it will be intense suspense for those aboard the crew and for Ric, we can only imagine a new father waiting patiently in the birthin waiting room. Its kinda of like a surprise birthday party and we're just waiting  for that door to open up and there she'll be. Or will it be a retirement party!!! Either way, most of you will agree that its been alot of fun. I was really overtaken by those at the conference in D.C. who have become addicted to one woman and what she has stood for in American History. It was quite evident of those who drew upon her exhibit at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. Mostly those were young girls fascinated by her accomplishments and there hearts cry "If Amelia could do it....So can I" attitude!!! I was truly taken by the thought how this woman could make an impact long after she's gone. If in the coming days, Ric and the crew do find something...I believe it is our duty to recognize her nationally by a major monument or some form of ceremony. Maybe a day in her honor...Amelia Earhart Day!!! She may have had a hard time landing planes, but I can honestly say she had more guts than I ever will to get in a plane 15 minutes after seeing it. Anyway, the days are counting down and in just two days we will mark that fateful day 75 years ago!!! Let's all pray for Ric, the Tighar Crew, those involved with ship operations, and those running all the mini-subs, for their personal safety. We pray that there will finally be an answer and a resolve, and that finally a chapter in American History will finally be read! Good Luck and God Bless!!!!

Very well said Randy. Amelia has touch us all in certain ways. Yes, Godspeed to Ric & Co for a safe trip to Niku, for finding what we are looking for, and returning safely with the evidence we need to solve this mystery.

I, a recent donor and latecomer to this forum, also wish success, and the best of luck, to the Niku VII team.

At the same time I am disturbed that so many of us appear to believe that "THIS IS IT!" - that Niku VII will finally provide the positive proof we are all seeking and hoping for. Unfortunately, there are many reasons that Niku VII could fail, too many to enumerate. How can anyone believe that the odds of success exceed 25% or so?

So I offer my hearty "good hunting" to the team, but I am also in this for the long haul, which is likely what it will take.

Patience and perseverance has done it so far. Meanwhile, let's enjoy the chase.

Welcome to the madhouse Jon!
I for one expect this trip to come up with something more than bits of broken glass, clam shells and turtle bones. The guys have put in a lot of effort recently and deserve a break. It will be a boost to find aircraft wreckage on the reef and should provide a big piece of the jigsaw regarding the Electra and its whereabouts. If not here then...well, it's the remains of someones aircraft.
IMHO of course
This must be the place

Hi Jon, and welcome from me too! You now, some members may be right, and the pictures are of lumps of coral. Some may be right, and it may be aircraft wreckage. I would think that most of us agree that the search is warranted, whatever becomes of it. The results of the search wont be debated, although the theories will be. Thats why we search.
Jump in---the water is warm, although there are sharks in the area!!

Bruce--you arent going? :o (!) Hopefully we will get some daily updates with "breaking news'

Watch this spot!
I have been watching that spot in your post but it has not moved yet.

First post for the Niku VII expedition has been put into place.  In the immortal words of Jack Lord/Steve McGarrett, "Book[mark] 'im, Danno!"  <sigh> Oh, for the good old days when I lived in Honolulu and the Hawaii Five-O production trailers would zip past on the highway. </sigh> Maybe if we all think good thoughts, a current TIGHAR living in the Honolulu area will perform a drive-by of the K-O-K and give us a report.

July 2, 2012 -- the 75th anniversary.

On NBC's Today show, shortly after 8 a.m. EDT, Brian Williams teased a report that'll appear on this evening's NBC Nightly News about the Niku VII expedition.

I saw it. Just hope they get the story close to right. I guess that sometimes any publiciity is better than none. Maybe help the fund raising.
