Almost Home...

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!

Happy New Years!

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 Dystopian 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 below:
