A Bit of Apollo Today

A Bit of Apollo Today

I dropped the boy child off at Space Camp today. He’s stoked. I took a little time to say hello to the Saturn V, an Apollo 14 moon rock and Apollo 16 command module while I was there. So cool to see them up close. Doesn’t matter that we were there last summer. I also explained to my friend’s 13 year old daughter how people went to the bathroom in space back then. Basic response from her was,...

The Miata spirit runs strong at work. These were spotted at our general offices. I’ve seen them all parked together multiple times.

Whale To The Museum

Whale To The Museum

They have moved the big girl to the Delta Flight Museum this morning. This is 747-400 #1 that accomplished the flight test requirements prior to being delivered to Northwest Airlines. The aircraft was removed from service and prepped for the museum by Delta TechOps. To get to the museum they had to remove a bunch of fense at the Atlanta airport, a burm and they had to build ramps off the...

Power Tour Day 2 Pics - Martinsville

Power Tour Day 2 Pics - Martinsville

Day 2 had us drive from Charlotte to Martinsville via back roads. They took us out past the Richard Petty Museum, which was closed on Sunday, and then back to the west. All in all we drove for about 5 hours. Lots of folks along the roads waving. The little kids dig the Mini.

Bums Hanging Out

Evo
Bums Hanging Out

Still fixing little things on the Evo from the accident we had a couple of years ago. Today it was the license plate frame. It was all bent up and the inserts for the screws were gone. Fixed that and replaced the bulbs for the plate lights. Now I’m going to enjoy a cool water and change the oil on the 90 Mini.

Monza - It's Getting Close

Monza - It's Getting Close

Three Sundays from now my wife and I will be among the teaming mobs of humanity who will swarm the track at Monza after the race. I’m stoked. I’ve been to Daytona, Indy and Le Mans (among other tracks) and I am excited to take in a race here. We’ve got seats on the front stretch and plan to walk the track on Friday. We have an apartment via AirBnB in town and have our train tickets from Nice...
