    Internet on Red Rooster III

    Last year on a 8 day the Wifi on the Intrpid was down, we new this going into the trip, I rented a Sat phone and bought lots of minutes, was able to share with others and make the calls that I had to for my buisness and say hi to the family. I thought it was totally worth it for the small price

    defrosting processed fish

    Your doing it right, by letting the fish defrost in your frig overnight. Best to keep them in the chest freezer until your ready to defrost. Home freezers allow the core to warm,they don't keep things as cold as we think. Commercial ice cream freezers keep product sub 30'. That's the best way...
