Catalina's working out of Midway picked up a Japanese TF about 480 nautical miles NW of Midway headed east and I've got traffic going
to Midway that could be effected. I'm wondering if I should start re-routing inbound traffic already. Probably. I suppose I should send
somebody up there to check it out.

I've set his destination as Midway but the home port to Pearl as a note to me to send him to Pearl after he's done with his Midway mission.

I've got some PT boats that I'm saving for a rainy day. Between Cam Ranh Bay and Manila there's all kinds of Jap ship traffic and some
of it is probably headed for the PI. If I can find a juicy target like just AK's or better yet some AP's or maybe a mixture of the two then I can
unleash my PT boats and thrash them severly about the head and shoulders.

I'm installing the Sparrow Bn on Babar even as the Jap TF's approach the east coast of Dutch New Guinea. They, the Japs, will probably
have some air power in this area in a couple of days time.......I'm getting Sparrow settled just in time. Babar is going to need some
engineers to help build the airfield up and expand the port. I wonder if there are any engineers in Oz that aren't doing anything important
right now. I'll look around and get back to you.

As someone yet to start my first general campaign, I'm lapping up every AAR versus the AI.

Just trying to get my head round the logisitics and troop movments needed in the intial game.

Hey there catwhoorg dude. Do yourself a favor and play a human instead of playing the AI. Somebody who doesn't mind showing you the ropes and maybe a couple of restarts. Those kind of opponents are rare though. I wish I had one like that when I started my first
campaign game. I'm just playing the AI because I want to have something to do while I wait for Jim to return his moves.

Thats good advice, but with my current work and home life schedule and completely erratic gaming schedule as a consequence, any RL opponent would have to be a saint.

I'm not looking to put someon through that until I have at least an idea of how to play.

Jim Moore and I are relatively new and thought we'd play a friendly game and just for fun instead of cut throat and it's really fun. Maybe
if you advertise ( post something in the opponents wanted ) you'd find somebody willing to work w/ your schedule and so on. It's a
committlemt of course though, something not too many people are willing to stick it out for years. Maybe you guys could switch sides
during play or something to keep it fresh for you.

I don't remember how the SS Republic got damaged, a torpedo or something. Anyway, it's still on fire and I've read in other AAR's that
if you leave it as a TF and dock it sometimes the fire goes out when, if you leave it disbanded while on fire sometimes the fire doesn't
go out. So.....

I was doing my moving of TF's and just now noticed a Jap TF moving NW across my shipping lanes and I seem to remember a group of
Jap AMC's doing that so I guess I'll have to route my ships away from it and maybe put together a welcoming party for them.

TF 286 is a 73K block of fuel finally reaching Pearl from SFO. So more supplies and fuel will start arriving at Pearl within days and then in
about a week or so they should reach Oz.

TF 349 is a group of TK's carrying fuel to Darwin and if and when it lands there it will more than double the fuel Darwin has right now.

That enemy TF we picked up yesterday is still there and it is still headed east. I'm putting a Catalina unit on searching for it
just to keep an eye on it and to track where it's going. I can't imagine the Japs trying to invade the west coast this early in the game
but I guess that's possible. I've got a DD at Midway but she isn't a match for what's out there, probably. Maybe the Cat's will bring us
some better recon in the days ahead.

The Argonaut is on station........now she just needs some unescorted ship traffic. She may have to loiter there for at least a week to see
anything. I'm going to leave her there for as long as the torpedoes last. A Jap ship could come along any day now.

I picked up some radio transmissions from Takao and I'm not sure what to believe from it. Supposedly there's a CVL parked there. Or it
might not be. I donno.

And then the B-17 raid on Bubble Drop. No losses but probably no damage either.

And then a bunch of stuff happened in China, which I'm skipping, and then the Japs and I both did bombardment attacks at Rabaul:

EDIT: I just now noticed that the AI has put the AF unit in with the invaders rather than in a separate trip. I can't imagine me doing that.
Putting the AF dudes at risk like that is bound to get some of them hurt. And they ( the AF dudes ) are relatively rare so I'm not sure
that's a good idea.

Nice AAR -

Very nice SCTF action for you this early. The A.I. is not very good, like we commented on in the e-mails.

I'd be cautious about putting more planes on Wake, just make sure there are enough AF engineers and supply to keep your fighters flying since he has no way to escort the bombers. Attrition works!

Slept most of yesterday and was up today 3-6am & got TommyG's turn done and out the door. I feel better but not good - yet.

Also I'm waiting on a turn from you. . .

Why thank you very much. I'm surprised to see you posting so early. Last I heard you were feeling under the weather and were
going back to bed. Good to hear that you're doing better.

Yeah, you're right about that. I'm thinking that I might have some B-17's hitting the home islands in about a year and a half at this
rate. Not much of a challenge so far. But I'm not complaining.

AF DUDES and supply, roger that. Working on it already.

I emailed my moves at 09:18 Tucson Az time this morning and then launched into more publishing of AAR stuff here without a
significant lapse in time. Lemme know if my email moushed again. I can always re-send.
