If I were 18 years old I'd go sign up today to be a part of that program! I'd also pay about anything to be on the maiden voyage , very cool!

I applied to the companies that were working on the design side, but they were looking for someone with a masters. And I couldnt go on the armed forces side becasue of my asthma. I ended up going somewhere better, but still think its an awesome program.

According to the video they are going to run it through the St. Lawrence to the Atllantic.....

Too bad they missed the Poker Run. :D
