Recently people have been joining me on my Sunday Walks in Downtown Albany. Typically, I walk in Albany when I'm scheduled as a tour guide on the USS Slater. A slide show and a map are detailed at this blog entry. I plan on walking on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27. You can contact me at:

New Season - 2009

I didn't post any blogs during 2008. I was ill when the season started. After recovery I was very very busy with my paying jobs that I had little time to spare. Towards the end of the season I got back into the giving USS Slater Tours.

During 2008 a movie was filmed aboard the USS Slater (Orion in Midsummer). largely because of the filming, the Slater crew did a lot of work restoring the depth charges. Added the second rack, and faux fuzes. They also did a lot of work on the electonic equipment in CIC (Combat Information Center).

This year off to a great Start. The ship opened a little earlier than usual. I gave guided tours on two Sundays and was fairly busy. I think the economy is keeping people local.
