VOYAGE PART 11: SHAKEDOWN CRUISE

April 2, 2012

FIRST STEPS

The vehicle road test was taken to near the top of Four Peaks mountain (7000 ft).  Dog had fun in the snow, and we got to add scratches and mud to the color scheme of the vehicle.  The Trailer got shaken down 7 miles of the Apache Trail to the Burnt Corral Camp Ground.  Shaken is the operative word, along with squeezed past oncoming cars on the trail.  Communications are working with Starband internet, and systems are working without utility connections.  Generator is a bit stinky though.  Dog is rediscovering her Labrador Retriever roots since we are on the lake here.

The workshop will function in any environment, and I am able to keep up daily chores like the budget while on the road.  Dog loves the deck / shop area to guard against approaching coyotes too.  We may be ready to start some first contact missions soon now.

    This is Earth calling Lunar Base One, Earth to Base One, over. Your promotion has gone through.
    Captain, Communications Officer, Design Meister, Scribe, Mess Cook, Nagivator & Dog Watch One….with all the appropriate privileges of Rank, unless you get caught of course. Then we will of course absolutely deny any knowledge of or association with you, as per the secret profile of your mission. Remember the code of the forest traveler, leave no trace, and pick up some OPT when you can. OPT = Other People’s Trash. Good Luck, Happy Sailing, may the Winds of Fortune blow perennially in your favor. By the way, do you have fishing tackle? Want some? Earth to Base One. Out.

  2. Greetings,
