Every time I read "The Ithaca Bean Plant" in here, I always chuckle. It's one of the highlights of my day.

Sounds like 386 might be out running next week. Once all of the SD35s are dialed in, they are going to get 391 running again.

Someone mentioned that there was a load of empties at Beacon, maybe they came to pick those up. I noticed some fresh tracks when I headed to work earlier, just wrote it off as MOW stuff.
