This is gonna be a great day!

At noon or so Hawaii time I will be down at the UH marine research center, presenting Ric a small token of well-wishes from his friends on the forum (I hope no one minds me speaking on their behalf!) ;D
He was very gracious to offer me a tour of the ship and a ride down to the fueling dock (mini-harbor cruise). So...I'm callling in sick today. LOL
If I can ever find out how to get images from my computer posted here...sigh.

Just a quick note to the Expeditioners from a well-wisher- stay safe, be thorough, and bring Amelia and Fred back home.  God bless and the very best of weather and luck!

Lisa Anne, as you begin to compose a new message, look below the composition (see image #1 below) window and click on the "Attachments and other options" link.  That expands that option to present you with a "browse" function so that you can navigate to the picture file in your computer, choose, and attach it (see image #2 below).  For attaching multiple pictures (up to four), click on the  "(more attachments)" underneath where your first picture's file name appeared.

Just remember that when you "preview" your message, you will not be shown your attachments.  But when you "post" the message, they will be there.
LTM,

I enjoyed the YouTube video but the comments below it are very disturbing. Is that really how the public is viewing this expedition?

Either way, best of luck on the search! I am looking forward to the daily updates!

Yes, some of the comments are very stupid. So we should write our comments too.  (Did so!) All should know that no taxpayer's money is wasted.

I agree.  In the US, when you look at comments after an article the majority are hyper-critical, angry, sarcastic and negative.  The only exception is the death of someone trying to do a good deed, or about the good deed if the person is successful.  I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't keep seeing it over and over.  And it is hard to ignore.  It seems we are consumed with anger.

Well I'm not, and the first angry person I meet I'll fight to the death to prove it. Nobody is going to call me angry!!

But all seriousness aside, I tried to post there but have had login trouble.  I'm not a 'believer' as some might criticize, but I am a well wisher (I do believe TIGHAR is right, but this is not a trivial undertaking and not entirely safe either.) So I'll hold the right thought for safety and no mechanical failures, and look for a positive result. 
And I'll remember the people like Leo Bellarts as I last saw them in interviews, and hope this is the answer.

By all means we should weigh in with the truth.  Sad, such negative, ill-informed stuff showing up.......................

LTM -

Absolutely!  Aren't most followers negative when they don't have enough information to be positive?

Today's posting by Jeff on another thread is a reminder that, as we wait with bated breath for the next morsel of news from the expedition, we should gratefully acknowledge those companies that have made major contributions to the funding of Niku VII -- especially the company that built NR16020.
