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!

This is gonna be a great day!

If I can ever find out how to get images from my computer posted here...sigh.

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.

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.
LTM,

My favourite plane ever!
Lockheed U-2 and TR series planes. You gotta admire a plane design that requires the pilot to stall it to get it on the ground. Those birds loved to fly, they hated the ground. ;D
This must be the place

i have just been reading on sky news that the expert that retrieved the black boxes from Air France crash is aboard ship.

Is that to help find parts, Buried by sediment or is there a possibility parts could be raised on this expedition ?

So by now I bet some of you thought I DID stow away on KoK - if only that had been the case. Sigh. ;)

What a great time, though, made possible by Ric's generosity and the friendliness of everyone aboard that I met. I was able to spend Monday afternoon on the boat, even rode down to the refueling dock and back (fun but in truth not all that exciting. Smooth ride)

Ric loved the gift - in case these pictures don't make it up on the Forum, I'll tell you all what it was: Bruce Thomas had the idea to get Ric and the team a bottle of Benedictine as sort of a gag gift (thanks again Bruce for the idea!! Can't believe I pulled it off!). They'll have to "sneak" it on the boat though since the cap'n runs a "dry" boat...

I cannot express enough how nice it was that Ric took the time from his busy schedule to show me around and introduce me to everyone - and if I try to name everyone, I know I will forget someone...but what a class act. I can't wait to hear what happens at Niku!  I've invitied everyone from the team to come to the Battleship Missouri for tours, time permitting, when they return - that is if there aren't any big earthshaking press conferences to announce...well, you know.
