Are there any more 'daily' reports coming?

Yeah, I've just been buried with this photo nonsense.  At last report they hadn't found any bones.

and that's just what it is too. a distraction for you no doubt. nothing in that photo distinguishes whether that picture was taken in 1904 or 1944, nevermind if that short haired kid crouching down was actually AE.

Ric,

Is it possible to get one or more of the dogs to "hit" on the finger/turtle bone we have?

Only a tiny fragment is left of the finger bone after several attempts to extract DNA.  The fragment is at the Molecular Anthropology Lab at the University of Oklahoma.  Not something we can have the dogs sniff.

It is an issue for Rick and for anyone else who has friends or family that ask about this 'exercise' by the history channel.  They've got to change that name!
I try to answer any email coming my way, but it isn't worth the effort.  I'm glad you're keeping your cool thru this.  I'm already sick of it.  If you need any help burying this 'theory' please ask.  I imagine there's only 5- 10 thousand people willing to help.

Is it obvious that the History Channel times its shows to coincide with Tighars expeditions? I have several relatives and friends that aren't as involved as we are that are confused about the two events. I try to explain but I am wondering about the thousands of other folks that don't have a relative in Tighar.

There's currently no link to the Dailies on the homepage but the work at the island has been over since last Thursday.  The ship will make port in Fiji today.

Thank you for the update Ric. Have been curious about the return trip and will be happy to receive the "all are safe and well" update.

The M/V Reef Explorer arrived safely back in Fiji, and everyone on my flight from Fiji to LA also arrived back in the US safely.  Various people traveled by other routes.

Welcome home Arthur.  I was under the impression that the ship was M/V Reef Endeavor.  Jet lag is a bitch.

correct on both accounts.  I woke up up at dawn, closed my eyes, and next I knew it was 11 am.
