    Well now, that's much better.
    Where, and what, do you hunt in Montana?

    Here is the Big U, laid up in Norfolk back in 81.

    The old McAllister docks in San Juan. Sometime around 1983.

    Here is a picture heading outbound, toward San Juan and passing an inbound tug and tow. I am a little embarassed by this one with the stain that I am putting on the sky. The best I can figure is that this is a shot that I took just after I took a boat over after some time off. One of the first things that I would do when we got down to San Juan was set the injector racks while the engine was still hot. That kept that nasty black cloud from following us.

    Another shot of the USNS ALTAIR, (ex SEA-LAND FINANCE). This one, making up tow in Philly in November of 83.

    I saw her there way too many times, rusting away, never felt good about it.

    Lots of sail area on that one - I would think the tow might be challenging - probably silly of me, they all were.

    Walking distance from Old San Juan. It was taken from the Crowley dock. I think it was Pier 9.

    Friends hunt the Bitteroot end for most species. They're all working this season so that hunt's out. I'm looking to get an elk with my Martini chambered in 40-65 Winchester. I hunted Newcastle Wyoming a couple of times for white tail. They're 3 times the size of Texas deer. Great place with great people.

    Thanks for posting. I saw her there also, in the fall of 1983.

    I had the opportunity to make a westbound crossing on the SS United States in the spring of '63. Not as crew, but as a passenger. If there was any trip I'd love to do again, it would be that.

    I have a photo of live steam coming out of the horn, something we'll never see again. I'd post it, but still haven't figured out how to post here.
