Default Empty boats moving around DS

Just left a 1 night stay at SSR. Saw several empty boats moving around all the waterways. Not sure if they were training people or testing boats to see how they survived the long shutdown. PO opens 10/14. Hopefully boats will be running by then.

We watched this on Friday too. Nobody on the boats but the skipper. Not even a first mate. I’m pretty sure they’re just doing the runs to make sure the boats withstood the long slow opening. They’ve been out of use for 18 months.

Default Empty no more!

So exciting to catch the boat from SSR to Marketplace this evening!!
Last boat departs Marketplace at 11:30pm tonight. Only 1 dock/stop at DS so far but the boats are running.
As i went to WOD, I caught the bus back and was happy to see Saratoga is bus stop 3 at DS. Right after VWL and CR. Much better than BWV and AKV which are 20 something. A long walk after all that shopping.
DS bus returned through back gate and first stop was Springs.
