    Sorry to hear. FWIW, 5 years ago guy doing deliver back w/us didn't get his bag, he had checked and rechecked at most of the hotels to see if it was mis-delivered. As we were heading out on Wed, he got a call that it had been found. Also, a few years ago, one of the crew on EW lost his bag as we headed home. He brought it to the ferry on Mac island, had it tagged, etc and it never showed up in Mac City. As far as I know, that one is still a mystery. And I agree, CYC offering island bag service is an interesting idea. Speaking of things going missing...a couple years ago, someone swiped the Grateful Dead flag from Renegade (originally a Folie flag), the following year the thief or thief's BO returned it. Last week it disappeared again, was taken on Wed between 1 AM - 4 AM. If anyone knows where it is, I can tell you the guys don't get it and really don't care who did it or why, they'd just like the flag back.

    Mac prep this year included getting the seat patch stitching resewn on my foulie pants. Stitching was worn out, Henri Lloyd needed a couple weeks to evaluate and determine if warranty covered or not and told me they were likely beyond useful life, so not likely covered. Emailed Outerwear Repair (they've done great work for me before) in early June and it was going to be no problem to repair and send back by July 8 (gave myself some cushion in case of delivery issues). I delayed sending until just last week and still got my bibs back today! Repair+return shipping only $35! Great customer service, responsive, fast and great repair work. I'll be getting new foulies for next season, but when those start to wear out, Brenda at Outerwear Repair will get my business.

    In the good old days, the Assassin crew rented an apartment, believe they were owned/managed by the Island House. We got a studio and slept a ton of people there, but not probably the type of sleeping arrangements (couch cushions on the floor, etc.) you're looking for Sure they had bigger apartments too.
