This is the greatest site! Thank you very much Bob. I looked at all the photos and videos, along with my wife, and she was so very impressed. I even found a shipmate that I remember, and I sent him a note. Thanks again for all your hard work.

Hi Doug. I'm still in Fargo. I'm doing fine, though these god awful winters and spring floods are getting hard for this old guy to deal with year after year. Hopefully  soon when I could afford it, I'm going to find a nice place in the tropics, like the Philippines to spend the winters. At least the economy up here booming and North Dakota is debt free, so that's a plus. Good to hear from you.
