A barge came in this week bringing equipment and materials for our taxiway repair project. With our lead based paint abatement still going on, there's a lot of activity. We have to do these kinds of projects while the albatrosses are gone because it's really difficult to move equipment around when they are everywhere.
We're losing 9 of our Thai workers tomorrow, since it's the last day of the fiscal year. Most of them have been out here more than 6 years with one leaving after 17 years. We'll miss them and all the work that they do out here.
The barge is being brought into the atoll by a tug.
The barge is quite a bit bigger than the Kahana. They have to go back to Hawaii to get more materials and will come back in a couple of weeks.
