was onboard again on September 28th working down on Broadway.
We're getting close to being finished down there, but I expect to
continue working on Broadway for at least the next several visits. Right
now it appears that the next area to open to the public could be the
ships Machine Shops and other areas on Deck 2. This Saturday volunteers spent the day in those areas cleaning up equipment in
preparation for adding those areas to the Tour Route. Some photos from today's
visit are below.

Machine Shop spaces have just been given a fresh coat of paint and
could be the next area of the ship to be included on the Tour Route.

These areas will make a nice addition to the Tour Route.

onboard all the time, doing whatever needs to be done, great job guys!

Romeo, this one and the next one are for you. You wanted a photo
of the Damage Control Office, I'm pretty sure this is it, but it is
used as the ships Maintenance Office so it was locked and inaccessible
when I was onboard on Saturday. I'll try again next time I'm
is the Damage Control Compartmentation Plates station forward
and around the corner from the office shown in the above photo.
next nine photos are for you Martin. You asked for some photos
of the spaces below the aft CiWS mounts to try and persuade Jerry
come visit the ship. This first one is looking up the ladder to
spaces from outside the hatches leading to the Band Room and Gym.

dark in this area so I just pointed the camera and let the flash do the

made you want to come visit Big J Jerry, she's really looking great.
