I'm so excited!! This morning I took a picture of the sub coming up as I met them up north in a secret location. I was brought to the sub via small boat by LT John Harrison, and then boarded for my journey to Duluth/Superior.

As I am being allowed to broadcast from the ship today, I am overwhelmed by the buttons and computers and knowledge of the Navy men and women who do this every day. I am a little phobic of closed in spaces so this will be a test as to how long I can last.

The sub is going to survey some areas in the bay for dredging lanes and also was called in to survey the damage on the ships during ice breaking maneuvers.

Thank you to the US Navy for allowing me this opportunity.
