Ready to go.

It's 200 miles to Disney world. I got a full bag of pupperoni, bladder reading of 0.0, a new toy and the sun is shining. Hit it.


Ima pee on a palm tree!

Disappointed... We may have to abort our mission. New calculations show we need to drive at 80 miles an hour for 10 hours to get there a half hour late. Praying for a delay.

Progress so far

10:15 goodbye New Jersey. Hello Delaware! Got a late start and left at 7:30 instead of 6. Still hoping for a delay in the shuttle launch.

Countdown clock running.

Prepped for launch

OK.  The Shuttle is on the pad ready for launch.  The cargo is delivered and will be locked down shortly.  Fuel cell servicing is being done today.  Final checks and closeouts on stored equipment will be done today.  The astronauts are in quarantine and mentally preparing to go.  One final mission briefing for the Go/ No Go for launch. 
This is happening right now and in Yorktown Heights.  So far we are a Go for launch.  We are not anticipating any delays.  If the shuttle delays, we may delay.  The truck is prepped.  Equipment is stowed.  Cargo loading is tonight.  Fuel is full.  Spare Tire arriving today.  T-31 hours 30 minutes.
