|The Voyager's First Private Mission. The Crew from Alpine Train at their Station|
The Recently Launched USS Voyager's First Private Mission. A Milestone for the New Ship on the Block
I call yesterday's private mission on the new USS Voyager's first "private mission" because it was the first private party to book a mission and pay!! The Voyager made its first dollar! Thank you crew of young 6th graders from Westfield Elementary in Alpine.
|The crew is briefed on their mission. "Midnight Rescue"|
I wrote Midnight Rescue years and years ago and told the mission hundreds and hundreds of times for field trips over the years, but could I remember the mission's briefing to save my life. NO. Maeson Busk flew the mission. He knew the mission. Isaac Ostler worked IIFX. On staff were Ethan Freestone, Brad Smith, Caleb Klein, and Jensen Caldwell. I worked the bridge with Jensen. I wanted to experience our first crew first hand. After all, the new Voyager had to live up to my first Voyager in all aspects.

So, if you're interested in a mission on the new Voyager this is what you do:
1. Send me an email email@example.com
See how easy that is. Be sure to include your phone number. I book our private mission by phone.
We can only do a couple per week so you get the personal touch. The ship can take between 7 and 10 people and comes in at $150.00 for a 2.5 hour mission.

The Magellan Gets New Carpet. It Looks Good
|The Magellan's 12 year old carpet|
After 12 years Mr. Porter made the right decision to replace the Magellan's carpet. The weird design is gone.I was never a fan of that carpet. I used it for the Magellan because I got it cheap. Real cheap. In fact, for free. One day while the Magellan was being remodeled in the winter of 2005, I drove to the school district's maintenance yard and asked to see the carpet remnants stored in a large metal storage container near the perimeter fence. The carpet we used was the only style available with enough left overs from classroom installations to do the entire Magellan.
Thankfully we say goodbye to that old stuff and hello to a new carpet with a fresh modern design.
Oh, an another feature of the new carpet is that it comes in squares - easily replaced if soiled or damaged by marauding space pirates or overly excited crews.
