Day 3: Observation phase 1

12:00 p.m.

  • When returning to the beach, conditions are not favorable. Perhaps a cold front came through and I had not noticed it because it was dead midnight last time on location.
  • Previous days were 60f degrees with strong wind.
  • Now winds are hardly down and temp is at 40f.
  • Hardly anyone is at the beach.

Day 3: Observation phase 1

12:05 p.m.

  • They quickly dropped it and walk away.
  • When I check to see what it was I find it was the piece I stuck in the sand at Midnight. It had seemed to wash ashore.

12:15 p.m.

  • I have found two other of my driftwoods. The small one has been completely undisturbed.
  • The 2x4 piece’s location remained the same but chips from its body are around it. I suspect that it had been found but ultimatly ignored.
day 3 observation phase 15
Day 3: Observation phase 1

12:20 p.m.

  • On my way to set up base. I find the last of the pieces I set at midnight had drifted ashore far a ways from where it had been placed.
  • But since it was near pieces already set I retrieve it for presentation evidence.

12:35 p.m.

  • I go back to retrieve the wood the earlier couple had ignored and tossed it back into the ocean for it to resurface.
day 3 observation phase 16
Day 3: Observation phase 1

day 4 observation phase 211
Day 4: Observation phase 2

7:30 p.m.

  • No one has still called me about the HELP driftwood.
  • This is especially frustrating because American “FREAKING” Idol is on Fripp Island filming for the American Idol Candice Glover.
  • You’d think one, Crew member at least, would take a walk on the beach.
day 5 project continued end
Day 5: Project continued end
  • It is time for me to return to GMU from Fripp Island South Carolina.
  • I have decided to leave what remaining wood I had on the beach. There are still many days till presentation day and someone may call.
  • And someone did.
day 5 drive back
Day 5: Drive back
  • The trip from Fripp Island, South Carolina to home is 9 hours by car, at best.
  • At around 12:00 I stop at a rest area for lunch.
  • While I am their I receive a call from a unrecognized number.
  • I was indeed a call from someone about the driftwood.
  • However the timing of the call was the worst possible.
day 5 drive back1
Day 5: Drive back
  • When I get the long awaited call
  • I have not since then received any calls bout the drift wood.
  • I am curious to see if I will get anymore calls in the future.
  • As well as if what pieces I left behind will still be there when I return.
  • From what has already been observed. This process has shown what is ultimately already known.
  • Not many will rise up to the call of duty when it is unexpectedly sounded.
  • Though few,(one at the worst time), have shown that they are willing to help.
