A new simulator

Today the Inland Waterways Academy at Mountwest Community and Technical College here in Huntington had a media availability and dedication of its new towboat pilot simulator.

Adam gave it a thumbs up. He did pretty good in a couple of tight spots in New Orleans, and he got some career advice from people at Mountwest about his river career ambitions.

More on this later. I was there to write a news article for my employer, and I don't want to scoop the folks who issue my paychecks. That article should be up on the web by the end of the week. I'll link to it when it's up.

Meanwhile, here's one media report on the event.
