33 days and counting

The last time we were counting days it was until this year's Dry Tortugas artists in residence were announced.  Now we are counting down to 8/30 (33days) when Shannon and I arrive in Key West for orientation.  we load up our stuff on the National Park Boat Fort Jefferson and head out to Loggerhead Key on 9/1.  There is lot's going on.  We ordered a satellite phone to rent for the trip for emergencies and a weekly check in call with Wendy and Deana.  I'm evaluating trip insurance plans.  Shannon and I talk multiple times a day by text and phone at this point and divide up the to do list.  Our latest podcast episode with Tanya Ortega from the NPAF went live last week.  You can find it anywhere you get your podcasts under Flying Tortuga Brothers.  The time to leave for the trip will be here before we know it.  Our gofundme campaign is still active and we are still looking for any help you can give to help us cover the costs of the trip and making the documentary film.  If you can chip in a few bucks we really appreciate it.  It's been a strange year with everything going on to plan a trip like this, but it is a once in a lifetime opportunity so if at all possible we'll be on Loggerhead Key for the whole month of September.
