    Back before the TJ Bridge there was a ferry from Solomon's to the Base (people only) People had unlicensed cars parked near Hngr. 301 to get to wherever they worked on Base. When the bridge was closed in 1983? 1984? for repairs, the Navy provided ferry service and shuttle buses on base to get around.

    Our company had a beat up old Volvo station wagon to haul our Calvert employees from the ferry to our Lex Park office and back every day.
    You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. -Frank Zappa

    Sure..there are quite a few of those in operation around the world. Just not "here".
