I'm single and I have a vacation house to myself at the moment.
I don't know if that is enough for first dude, but if you are in the need for a Foo-Camp David, I serve at your pleasure.

I volunteer to lead the search party. We will search the globe for as long as it takes and use a strategy of visiting countries with the tastiest beer to maximize the chances for success. My liver is up for this challenge.

I'm not sure how many should be on the team, but we'll need at least one sober person to handle the difficult and dangerous chores of designated driver and arranger-of-bail-money (other duties as required).

I will submit a budget request shortly.

I just want to say dipthong. Not really sure why. I think it was brought about by reading "debriefing" above. Carry on.

Oh, and I second the nomimation of BSY for Admiral of the Foo Navy.
