Class characteristics

"it's safe - don't lick anything"

Freight arrives by plane, but the airstrip is generally closed to civilian traffic. Float-planes do super-bucks catering to the wealthy, and hospital emergencies. Pilots are even more respected than Lodge-owners. 

I had decided to get here crossing the bay, because I know a yacht guy. The water was rough, and the boat was slow. The two of us listened to emergency radio - it had one show, about flipped boats. The captain had to row a dingy the last hundred meters to where TSG was waiting. 

In retrospect, that was an obscenely royal entrance.

The entire town consists of 52 households. Within an hour of my arrival, everyone had heard of the new minor celebrity - Red Shirt Guy. A nickname which persisted three hundred wardrobe changes, because Brian was already a dog's name.

I'm printing the lodge doors, and created a stack of failed prints. The FreeCAD design lacks tool-marks, or material character. I think construction adds interesting detail - too interesting in this case. TSG wants legible door numbers, and has me playing with fonts. Later I learned the slicer's "Layers" view-mode can simulate a detail preview.
