Up today at 6 & until 4 p.m., everyone was busy getting ready to leave in the morning. We discovered a leak in one pontoon, but fixed it up with some rubber bands.
In the evening, the Admiral commanding the station here gave us a farewell dinner at which everyone had a good time -- if they didn't it was their own fault. We left about 9:30 & from then until 11:45, I spent the time packing ( for from here we are sending back our heavy flying equipment, etc.), writing letters, etc. -- from all accounts, each hop from now on is going to get hotter and hotter.
