Please see the Projects tab and, particularly, the September 5, 6 page with a short summary of that trip. It was focused on cellar photogrammetry and still more measurements of the island. It was a very nice and productive Father-Daughter trip appended to the end of our summer travel.
Since the trip, David has been able to incorporate all info has has submitted a "Final Draft" of the survey for team review. As noted in the projects page, I created two additional 3D models of the cellar and am working on combining the complementary portions. These are downloadable from the 3D Modeling tab.
Lastly, we have been doing a ton of work on the origins of the island's name. See What's in a Name? or the "New Evidence..."" link on the home page for a major update there! The experts at the University of Glasgow and the University of Edinburgh have narrowed the likely explanations to "Island of the Store" and "Island of the Sunken Rock". Myles Maydew of the LLTTNP Rangers pointed out a note in an 1861 admiralty chart that we believe strongly supports the latter!
We continue to ask for research help. We are interested in any references to the island and "store" or "booth" as well and any older references to Guy Rock or the use of the island for navigation. We are particularly interested in solid time references for the "store" and/or "booth" stories.
If you can't wait to read through the article in the "What's in a Name?" tab, you can jump to the Conclusion? from the list of references listed there.
