They’re off!

September 4th, 2008 by Kip "Galley Master" Jones

I called Walt from the San Jose Airport at 8:30 am and was glad to learn his cell was still working. They had left the dock in Nome at 6:30 ADT and were encountering two meter seas as they left the Norton Sea heading for the Bering Sea. The weather forecast was for two to three meter seas on Thursday with winds and seas calming Friday and Saturday. As Randy said, they are headed for the area where the World’s Deadliest Catch was filmed and have more than a thousand miles to go before the trip is finished. ¬†We know that they will continue to sense God’s protection as we surround them in prayer.

Walt reported Pat’s culinary skills were a big hit with his beans and fresh baked bread!

    You got off at just the right time Mom. Beans, men, and confined spaces are not a good combination! Great to see you this morning.

    Welcome home, Kip! Can’t wait to meet you in person!! Is there going to be a welcome party when the rest of the crew arrives? MarcieB.
