Dear Family & Friends:

Tonight I depart for the Big “E.”

Get out your “E” ticket and fasten your seat belt.

We are in for one wild ride.

  1. You guys are very much the subject of conversation at the AC meetings.

    I suppose you know that another member, James Cameron, just returned from the bottom of the Marianas trench, the lowest place on earth.
    You and he will be at the highest and the lowest place on earth in the same year. I want to pose for a photo between the two of you at an AC meeting, hopefully with the flag Alan is bringing. That flag has been to some important places ( important to me), The U.S.. capitol, Mt. Suribachi, The Battle ship Missouri, the Arizona at Pearl harbor, and 200 feet from the top of Everett. ( last expedition)
    You can be “Mr. High 5” -5 miles up. Jim can be “Mr Low 5” 5 miles down.

    Keep us up to date.
    Hi to Alan
