Our last transmitter turtle for this year, "JacKen" is named for two of Dean Bagley’s uncles who are currently battling health issues. Her Uncle Jack was the cool uncle who took her for rides in his 1966 mustang when she was a teen, and has lived nearby for most of her life. Her Uncle Ken was the fun uncle who lived in Honolulu, HI and then moved to Phoenix, AZ when he retired. We wish them well and hope they get a kick out of following their turtle while recovering from their illnesses.
