I’ve now prepared the means by which I can record phone conversations on my computer, but that wasn’t complete at the time of Jon’s initial call. The option to do that will be handy when any reports are phoned in from Sumatra – or, indeed, any further reports from Ireland.
Wednesday night, Jon phoned in a very brief report and I scribbled hasty notes.
“The ferry arrived at 7am,” Jon said. “And we must have looked innocent despite the long hair because we didn’t get stopped for any checks.”
Jon described how, by way of contrast, a chap driving a posh E-type Jaguar had his vehicle subjected to a general search while the CFZ party were just waved past.
(I think Corinna has the longest hair of the three but there’s probably not much in it.)
Jon continued, “We arrived in County Kerry around lunchtime, and at Doc’s at 1pm and spent some time talking to him and his wife.”
Jon said that groovy things are happening, and that the rest of the afternoon was spent meeting various members of the Shiels clan.
I then gave Jon a brief update on how things are going at CFZ Central, and then the call concluded. If my recording set-up works OK, then next time I should be able to post a verbatim transcript on the Internet. Good stuff, eh.
