Arrived on Saipan last night- crossed date line- missed a day. Aquarius Beach Tower [the hotel] is spacious- I'm sharing a suite with S.C. She's fantastic and brought good coffee.
Team meeting this AM with the camp and USFWS folks. They had nice maps. The long and short of it is that we have no idea when they will get us to Pagan Island.
"Maybe tomorrow"- a very popular island saying.
Plane? Helicopter? Boat? Nobody seems to know.
Since there is no real plan for us to leave we will try to survey around here for snails. Fearless Leader has some contacts and info about Partula gibba that we will follow up on.
Wi-fi at the hotel but did not bring my computer. Checked email on my phone (I wonder what the charges will be) and got a great message from M_.
Other details: Fearless Leader did not realize that his license was expired so renting a car took longer than expected.
People here are incredibly nice.
CNMI has its own "state" quarter.
The team is getting along well.
Birds from yesterday:
white terns (not fairy terns)
