Act of Valor - opening Feb 24

We've been waiting a long time to post this. There is a movie coming out on Feb 24 in the states called Act of Valor. We care for two reasons. One, it's about a bunch of Navy seals (played by Navy seals) and in general is a kudos for the Navy...we, being retired Navy and Andy having worked extensively with the seals, like that very much. Two, and much more personally, Andy's last gig in the Navy was shooting the underwater footage for this movie. From what we understand, quite a bit of it made it to the final cut.

We've been googling for the past two years trying to figure out if it was ever going to be released and now it is. Some of you maybe have already seen the trailers. If not, I heard they bought a few spots on the Superbowl (pregame, 4th qtr, and post game) so watch out for it. We can't vouch for whether the movie is any good or not, but the trailers look awesome and Bandito Brothers films tend to be pretty exciting so, I'm guessing it is. Either way, we're excited and since we won't see it for quite some time, would love for those of you who do see it to email us and tell us what you think.

On a more immediate note...we made it to Bikini Atoll this morning. On our way, we caught our first Mahi mahi in a LONG time. It was beautiful too...about 2 1/2 feet long and very tasty! Seas were fairly calm, albeit a little rocky. The wind was 20-25 knots but coming from behind so it moved us right along. We left Rongelap a little too early so we only had a hankerchief of our jib out to keep us from getting there before sunrise. Will post more about Bikini after we've had a bit of time to explore.

Just curious... you don't have to worry about the fish you eat being radioactive after the atom bomb went off there? Not sure how long the half life of radiation is, so I was just wondering...

Just finished watching. After the movie we waited until the credits and when I saw Andy's name I wanted to yell HEY I KNOW him!! :) Even though I only "know" you through your blog.
