For as long as they could remember the Tanner Family had been planning to take a year long trip in their father's ship. The family had discussed many names for the ship, which was to be their home away from home for a year long journey, but in the end, they had settled unanimously on one name. So it was that they christened it the MORNING STAR.
As the days drew near for their departure their father, Samuel was busy with all of the preparations, which had to be made. This after all was not a mere weekend trip, but as they were all soon to find out it would be a journey they would never forget.
