Brought to You by the Mighty Molossian Navy

On Saturday, 28 June 2008 XXXI, His Excellency, The President and Prince Christopher and Princess Erin of Vikesland departed Molossia for distant Donner Lake, located in the Sierras not far from Lake Tahoe. There they engaged in Joint Naval Maneuvers, using the mighty M.S. Wombat and the redoubtable M.S. Bandicoot. This marks the first occasion that two micronations have engaged in joint military activities, and the first time a graduate of the Molossian Naval Academy and Honorary Admiral - Prince Christopher - has deployed with the Molossian Navy. The Joint Exercise took the Royal Family and His Excellency through Donner Lagoon, much like the voyage of the Wombat almost two years ago in the same location. In addition to traveling the entire length of the lagoon, the intrepid voyagers landed at 5 MPH Island, and even forayed briefly out into Donner Lake itself. The expedition was a resounding success. Following the Joint Naval Maneuvers, The President took the Prince and Princess on a tour of Lake Tahoe, with stops at Skylandia on the North Shore and Emerald Bay on the West Shore. The day ended with dinner at Straw Hat Pizza in Carson City, the Official Pizza of the Republic of Molossia.

Hooray for the Molossian Navy!
