No biggie. But crawling through the attic from the garage to the spare room, in pitch black, is something I would rather not do again

Haha, bill, yeah, you're right on the way. I'll be right over

Well that was pretty damn cool! KSC was awesome, tons of outstanding things over there, took quite a few pictures with a disposable, getting it turned to a disc soon.

Don and Brad, already assumably excellent people, now proven and promoted in caliber, nice to finally meet you guys in person. Sorry I wasn't able to stay longer, I was tired then, but absolutely wiped now, and wanted to get on the drive then instead of string it out. Next time will be longer for sure. Not to mention how dirty the truck was, jees, how embarrassing.

I am already working on getting my butt back over there. Finally laid my eyes on another 3800 and got rehooked....be away way too long Not to mention that the FWI sounded SEXY. Haha, even dad, who knows nothing about our cars said, DAMN, is that blown? I'm like, no, don'* car just sounds that good.

Gonna try and make it for the night launch...2:33AM, March 11th...I really hope it goes up on time!

I've now found that the drive over is absolutely epic fun, especially at night. Averaged about 80-100, did a 5 hour, 300 mile drive...in 3.75 hours. MAN that truck is quick. And the Z71 sways...well..damn, they help keep that thing firmly planted. Finally found out what shes got. Best part though? I averaged 19.8 MPG.

*edited 3 times for grammar, spelling, and general knowing what the hell I'm talking about. Reason: Fatigue lmao*

Oh....you're dad is good. He took our picture at close range w/o us knowing about it, AND did a reflection shot. He must've been in military intelligence :P

Finally nice to meet you too. But you do know...that launch schedule is subject to change, depending on how bad the fuel tank is

It wasn't even a mini. More like a "micro".

lmao, a miniature version of a micro meet don't worry, didn't miss much, we just talked for like 20 mins in an AAP parking lot.

but i'm definitely coming back...

can't find any lodging for the 10th and 11th of course...so that might be interesting.
