>After 5 airline trips surrounded by people headed to their "dream vacations" I was aboard the CGC Munro, the lines were off and she was finally freed again. We pushed away from the pier and pointed the sharp bow out into the Bering Sea. Dutch became smaller and smaller as the horizon became enveloped by the sea. I was thousands of miles from home and the triple digit heat headed towards the Arctic Circle. As I started to gain my sea legs as the days went on, I found the crew had the best attitude, make the best of what you got. As we pull a 180 and start heading south Dutch is at the end of the track line, and Kodiak after that, hopefully this crew gets to sleep in a solid bed soon enough.
