Tomorrow I'll be rising early again. Off to Thacher Island to finish up the job. Keeper Sylvia called on Saturday morning, before she headed off island for the year, to let me know that a couple more keys were sticking (drat) and that the linkage repair didn't seem to be working (double drat). I decided to do a return trip as soon as I could to get everything finished up, thus eliminating the need for a late season trip. So I'm packed up again (with two linkage creations!) and there is actually room on a 9 a.m. boat. I'll be traveling out with some National Wildlife people.
