The mission began with a surprise birthday party for Crack, who turns
26 earth years on Monday. After a hearty celebration we gathered the
fleet to depart on a long mission. Several recruits decided to back
out at the last moment, after hearing about the level of discipline
and bravado required for such a demanding sortie. Eight stepped
forward to take the challenge.

Many derbies were performed as we traditionally flew through the
Harvard and Central Constellations, and on through the Lechmere
subsystem. During one derby Skunk and Chef collided, aggravating
Skunk's ribcage which was injured a week earlier in a training
exercise in the Belmont System while piloting his Long Range Scout, Sin.

We experienced significant g-well activity during our approach to the
Bunker Hill monument. From there we blasted down to the USS
Constitution, and relaxed on the waterfront. We traveled home through
Storrow's deep space.
