I'm guessing that's Yertle on top and Mack on the bottom?

I thought you could change the mission when you edit it, but it would be nice to be able to add it to more than one. Maybe that'll be a future enhancement!

Someone I know spotted one of those last summer in South Carolina. She looked it up back then and discovered its from the Pacific. Must have hitched a ride through the Panama Canal...
