Accurate Trip Headed South

Jack, the man himself, is on board and as usual, came bearing much in the way of Accurate loaner gear. After the safety orientation, he began the hand outs with T-shirts for all.

So, we already have more stuff than we boarded with as if we all didn’t bring enough.  We had lunch, began the movie marathon and now you’re up to date. Hopefully there will be much to report on in the coming weeks, but not a darn thing more that I can think of for now. Enjoy the reports and of course, the…
