In Which the Crew Apologizes for Radio Silence

The last month has been a mad dash to finish projects in order to depart the United States.

Breaking News: We're still here.

Working from dawn into the night, sleeping under a blanket of fiberglass dust, and praying for just one project to mirror in execution its conception on paper has not left much time for writing or reflection. The crew are battered, and dirty, and our modest funds decline with every day spent on land, but the end is nigh.  After delivery issues thanks to snowstorms in the Northeast, we've finally received the wire and parts to replace the standing rigging securing out mast. This is the last major project on a very long list, and we will address it in due time.

Please accept our sincerest apologies for the lack of updates. It will not pass unaddressed. After a full investigation into the causes of the information breakdown, a blue ribbon commission will be created to develop new communications procedures. An implementing task force will then be assigned to apply the new procedures, under the oversight of an M&E panel. All findings and corrective policy will be published at a later date.

And now, back to your regularly scheduled programming.
