How to get Langseth goods

Some watchstanders asked me how they can get Langseth T-shirts and sweaters. In my previous cruise, the captain opened a slop chest every Sunday afternoon, so I told them to wait for that. But during this cruise, we already had Sunday twice, and so far no slop chest... Actually, the current captain is different from the one for the previous cruise (Langseth has two captains in rotation), so he may have a different plan. I asked the captain about this this morning, and he told me, "Oh, come and see me any time while my stateroom is open; I'll open up the slop chest then."

Great! But watchstanders, please be nice. Don't visit the captain's room just by yourself; instead, form a group of interested people (at least two) to reduce the total number of bothering the captain. And one more note: the slop chest takes only cash.

In case the reader of this blog who is not on the ship is interested in purchasing cool-looking Langseth items, I'd suggest to visit Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, which is located in Palisades, NY. They probably have a gift shop, though I'm not 100% certain.
