Are we launching today to be there this Friday?


No.  Bomb day is Friday the 27th.  So for me that means a launch on Wednesday, the 25th.  In a week.

Damn, I hoped I'd be quicker with my edit, lol. It's been a hectic week.

As long as the PO is still open I will send.

So...all y’all that go out to the post office to launch your part of the mission...is that going to be a problem for anyone.  


Yes.

I'm currently self-isolating as I've been rather unwell. As per the UK government guidelines this means that my family are all in isolation with me too.

Due to the long range nature of my mission I planned to post Thu 19 Mar (tomorrow) but clearly this aint going to happen.

I will post as soon as I can conform to the guidelines.

Sorry boss. Sad

Good to know Mate.  Unavoidable.  I’m gonna list you as On Approved Leave.

I know all of us are in a situation of one level or another.  Best regards to you and yours.

———————-

Anyone out there in a situation where sending now would work but if you waited til next week your window would be closed?

I’m thinking if anyone thinks they might not send if we waited...to just go ahead and ship whenever it will work...from today out to the regular launch day next week.

Emergency Alert

To all pilots flying in the March Mission

Change of Orders...


Well, we lost Stick for this mission since he’s subject to a home quarantine thing. He can’t get to his post office.

Earlier I posted the question: do you think that waiting a week to launch will close down your ability to access shipping? Etc.  I’ve been waiting for some hopefully sane responses.  Nuthin’ so far.  But I’ve been pondering and weighing pros and cons.

It would not surprise me if the feds closed the post offices or severely restricted access in some way and/or told us we had to stay home, period.  Heck, our state government might do the latter on its own...like New York City has already done.  And the way things are ramping up right now this could literally happen in a matter of days.

So...I’m giving all you gents the “launch codes” right now for an immediate launch...or an ASAP Launch, etc.  This is entirely based on the belief that if we don’t go ASAP...we might not be able to go at all. And your combined ordinance striking over a period of days will be certain to have a devastating effect.

So as of tonight you all are authorized for launch as soon as you’re put together and can go.  Good luck to all of you.  As always...tracking data to me via PM.

Copy all. Currently out of town, will assess when I get home (there has been no plan on not letting us return on time so should make it back with plenty of time to ship)

The chaplain starts to rub his eyes but remembers the directive about touching his face and turns off the alarm clock instead. He squints at the clock to confirm the time as his head clears a little and reaches for his boots. It appears the squad is being scrambled early for a mission.

He will ready his crew and should have flight plans filed at o'dark thirty.

More to follow.

I just kicked my pilot out of his bed and told him to grab a coffee as we’re heading out early for a surprise attack.

On the runway awaiting clearance as of now, will post once airborne.

HA! Nailed it!

I just saw on our a.m. news that local authorities are considering a “shelter in place” order for Portland. Local “leaders” are mixed in their reactions. The mayor proposed it. The state’s major health manager says ‘not yet’...the CEO of the huge U of O Health Sciences University is in favor. And local case numbers are supposed to spike here over the next week, in part because many test results that have been pending are going to be reported.

And so it goes.

Good call. I've been wondering about the postal situation for a couple of days. My mutations are supposed to arrive tomorrow. So I will quickly get it together, and flight plans will be sent to the high command as soon as this bird has flown.

You’re all responding with great speed and dedication. Kudos.


There’s no motivation as strong as wanting to blow some poor sod half way to Mars. It’s a beautiful thing.

Okay...here we go.  Shelter in Place order issued for the whole state of California.  That’s a biggie.

Glad I jumped on this when I did. There’s mumblings around here of doing the same thing in Oregon.  Oh my.

Wow! Good ol’ proactive BH...


The State of Oregon will soon go to a “Stay at Home” rule...just announced by the Governor. No groups. Stay home unless critically necessary and then obey the 6’ of distance rule. They’re working on specific language now and the formal announcement will be made soon.

Glad I got my package off when I did.

—————————

Just another little piece of proactive policy:

After dialog between our XO and myself...we agree that this will be the last mission until such time that normal public conditions return. This decision has been made to mitigate the cost of participation in times of possible significant financial stress (if that is the case) for members. Also, it allows us to be partner to endorsing behaviors that may be life saving to yourselves and to your fellow citizens. This means not going to the Post Office, standing in lines, etc., etc., etc. Those two certainly are sufficient in and of themselves to dictate a pause. But in addition it just seems like the right thing to do. So...we’re gonna do it. It might be for a few months, the end of Summer...who knows. I think the time will make itself known.

Til then, thanks to one and all of you for this mission and those in the past. You cannot possibly know the joy and hope (and yes...the incredible amount of tobacco) you have given to your brothers. You’re the good guys.
