My long business trip is
almost over! This weekend is looking to be quite busy. Gwen and I will
be baby-sitting Saturday, Sunday I have a demo game for Dystopian Wars
as well as a birthday party for our nephew. And, on Monday, I hope to
get in a game of Firestorm Armada! Of course, this weekend would be
packed even without all that stuff. Being gone for a week and a half, I
have a lot of relaxing and catching up to do ;).
Anyway, today's update is a
series of photo galleries that contain the pictures I took at the former
Mare Island Naval Shipyard. I'm really glad I took a tour of this place;
there is a ton of history there and you can get access to major portions
of it. Check them out!
First post of 2011! It took me a
little longer to get it put together, but that tends to happen ;).
Gwen and I had a great Christmas
and New Years. We spent Christmas out here in Virginia with Gwen's
parents, and then drove out to Indiana to celebrate New Years with my
Mom & Dad. I got a lot of really neat stuff as presents, including some
really cool-looking models for a war game called
Wars. I will be posting more about this in the future, have no
doubt! I also got some new models for Firestorm Armada, including a
Directorate starter fleet. I have been anxious to get my hands on
these models since they were released. To me, they kind of look like
Star Trek ships.
I'm on a business trip all this
week, so I might have time to post up a few more updates. I've got some
neat pictures I took yesterday at the old Mare Island Naval Shipyard. I
also need to address my resolutions from last year, and put out the ones
for this year. Today, though, I have an update for the Warships section,
the first in years. I have pulled the Moltke out of mothballs so that I
can get her ready for the 2011 battling season. She has suffered some
rodent damage since the last time she saw the water, as I've detailed
