Comments A business trip to Guam got we six-days in Truk (Chuuk) whatever. I tried, but was unable to hook up with the Thorfinn for a mid-week boarding, as they were crusiing the islands.

As noted earlier, we spent the week shodowing the live-aboards. Aside were the pampering and the ability to do five dives a day, Blue Lagoon was hard to beat and a hell've lot cheaper.

We all questuionsed what it would be like in February, during the anniversay of "Hailstorm" when were told a room is hard to come by. Hope to return next year..let's that 80,000 frequent flyer miles, or.....
