NUKE WORLD PAST

Thursday was the last laundry, a romp in the park, and hooking up the trailer.  On Friday morning we left Colorado and arrived in Wyoming early in the afternoon.  I went past Chugwater to Wheatland to find an RV park.  Now we have moved from the Sonora and Mojave deserts at 95 degrees to Mountain snow and Prairie winds.  These are radical changes all on our one small planet.  The coming great space journeys will be grand challenges. 

I have a bad tail light and a leaking propane tank to service while I am here.  This is why a manned mission is both dangerous and better equipped to meet Murphy head on.  We bend with the unexpected, and work the problem like Apollo 13 had to do.  Monday will handle the new needs. 

My contact at Frontier Astronautics was thwarted by cell tower shortages and a massive game of phone message tag.  We finally got through and e-mailed the needed map and dates to meet Monday.  I did a little recon to Chugwater Saturday, and got a feel for the area.  It is much like western Nebraska, where my family came from.  I like this place!  Google Earth indicates a bunch of missile silos in this area, and most of them are now inactive…(?)  Frontier Astronautics owns a relic from the Cold war that serves new space development nicely.  It would also be a great place to go in a tornado.

Back in Wheatland, the RV park host told us that we could go to the gas station store if a tornado came.  We could enter the coolers for safety, but we had to pay for any products we drank in that time.  We could get blown away while we were being blown away…that’s what I call a convenience store!
