“Button,” Espiritu Santo

Rumors flying thick and fast. Most of them have us going home on the Curtiss with VP44. She is supposed to leave in a week or so for the states. Other rumors have us going back to Cactus for the big push (and elimination contest). All rumors are well substantiated by various subtle facts and statements. Oliver is taking bets up to $1000 that we don’t leave before October, but in his case I think it’s an unconscious attempt to buy his way home.
