    Hasn't The Monkey molted and become a butterfly by now?

    Probably too late or I’d take it to Florida and hand it off to someone.

    I was in Longview TX over Christmas (by car) and could have played a role. Monkey has to get to Rough River I think?

    @simtech has family in the Dallas area...maybe he can get it, then I'll get it from him and could take it wherever from there. LAF would be doable

    I was thinking about this the other day. I get this feeling that the Money is probably ready to travel a little more, he just needs some key destinations to travel to.

    Can we start with Key West? Would be great to have a picture of him at the red and black "Southern most point of the US" buoy.

    Monkey was at dinner tonight. Had to cut him off after he drank most of the beer

    4BCA9134-3A6A-4E35-A8E1-48BEEB68492F.jpeg

    Then he decided that he had enough abusing me for the past six months and has now elected to be with Kath as she travels on her Great 48 Aerial Tour.

    but if you guys want to come to DFW just cause, come on down. We’ll do dinner and make the trip worthwhile!

    It’s because he hacked my home security cams and was never seen in any of the footage. But I am sorta concerned what might be on that flash drive he threatened me with when I refused to do a liquor run for him.

    Let's go get it.

    I've handled the monkey before, it was a handful, but manageable. He did try to get me fired by taking a ride in a sim. That footage has since been burned by the AF so it didnt get out that monkeys can actually fly.

    Monkey!! He’s on the move again!

    I wore my monkey shirt to physical therapy a while back. That took some explaining...

    No he can't. Proved that tonight.

    Apparently just out of rehab, freshly paroled. Celebrating with the usual beer and blow, as you can see in @AggieMike88 pic above.

    Now he's coerced a new accomplice to help him get to Alaska as he flees from the authorities. Rumor has it they plan to take a circuitous route to throw the law off their trail. He has a way with the ladies, no doubt about that!

    In honor of the Monkey goin North. How many Alaskans we got here on POA you can hand him off to? You may have to do some ‘recruiting.’

    Okay, I realize in retrospect I should have been a little more specific...

    Tuscaloosa, Atlanta, Florida, West Virginia, D.C., Delaware, Rough River, StateCollege, New England, Upstate NY, Toronto, Lansing, Madison, Oshkosh, Canada, and Alaska, or bust!

    @kath you didn't have anything to do with that Carlos Ghosn escape thing did you? This is looking suspiciously similar... :D

    So I was trying to keep an updated “flight plan” map but I eventually hit a max # of waypoints so I couldn’t add anymore. But then he went rogue and I’m waaay behind on where he’s gone, but there is supposed to be a log book traveling with him that would def help me with a map. I also have a list of states he’s been in (not state of mind...), once kat completes her travels I can update that list. The log book would really help though.

    He’s in the envelope in a bag. Apparently one layer of security is no longer enough.

    I figured he probably scratched the hell out of Mike trying to put him in a bag... :)

    Feb. 8th or thereabouts.
    I'll be chillin' with Georgia Tech peeps.

    And yes, I seem to have two versions of a logbook: one on crummy sheets of paper, and one in a "proper" logbook... I can make some scans...

    Mike didn't just bag him, he Ziploc'ed him! He was allowed out only because of prior good behaviour (or so he said)...which was promptly abandoned as soon as Mike opened the bag and he chugged his first of several beer.

    The other thing I tried to keep up on was downloading any pics that people posted. I have almost 200 pics but nothing in the last, oh, 6 months or more since I took a break from PoA. Not sure if many were posted but I’ll go back and check. I have a feeling kath will not disappoint.
