Fog and Delays

My departure from the ship has been delayed. We anchored off of St. Paul island as planned, however the C-130 that was to pick us up was unable to land due to heavy fog. Our CAPT wanted to stay another 14 hours to try again in the morning (there are five people leaving and 21 attempting to fly in), but district ordered us to immediately get underway for the MBL.

After multiple date changes it looks like I may be getting out of here by the end of the month. I suppose I really shouldn't say when or how just in case there are any Russian fisherman who read obscure American blogs.

Anyways, the point is that I'll quickly be returning to land. I enjoy standing watch more than really anything else on the boat, but this lifestyle quickly gets tiring.
