Alder Opens 2016 season

Join the Alder and 25 members of LSMMA as they open the 2016 shipping season in Duluth Minnesota

Matcho, a canine crew member

The Chios Charity was recently scrapped but she was here 7 times after 1996. I got to know Matcho, her canine crew member on those last two trips.  Click below for a short video about my two visits with the Chios Charity wonder dog.

The good old days

While we wait for the Alder to open up the season, probably on Monday, March 9, here is a video I created during the beginning of the 2007 season.
