LIFTOFF FOR ARIZONA REENTRY

October 21, 2013

COLORADO DRYING OUT

The first stop on this journey is Longmont Colorado, where we have stopped on most of our tours to date.  You may recall the great flood they had a few weeks ago when I was camping in Saratoga Wyoming.  Evidence indicates the water was at least 10-20 feet over the banks.  I see sediment, branches and trees everywhere.  Foot bridges we used in the county park are washed out. 

Even interstate 25 was flooded in the low river crossings for a while.  Business suffered expensive damage along with home owners.  The camp grounds have a little extra use when RVs can replace lost homes.  I saw recovery volunteer equipment at church on Sunday.  I am glad that this camp was on high ground so it is available for residents and travelers.

On a more pleasant note a small group of supporters met actor Darren Burroughs (Ed Chigliak) in Denver for his new “Northern Exposed” book release.  We had an informal dinner in the VQ Hotel overlooking downtown Denver.  Fans of “Northern Exposure” had a good time chatting with folks who knew the workings of the old Northern Exposure TV show.  I will give links to the book trailer when it is released.

You know that I am pursuing commercialization of my patent for improved space launch methods.  I invested deeply in labor hours, models, and patent law.  The patent document arrived just before I left Wyoming.  This required some faith to leave Arizona and meet industry leaders across America.  I am confident that we will see new ways to access space, and that I have a small contribution to that future. 

In the west I have seen how many others have even more faith to trust God to keep their family finances in agriculture and many temporary employment fields.  They endure floods and blizzards and help each other get back in business.  We know that we are not alone when life challenges our survival.  So I wanted to share two other blogs that I publish related to that hope that keeps me going.  The first is a journey through the bible observing the modern relevance of some ancient lives.  The second is a look at space and life in our universe from a spiritual viewpoint…some far out “what if” theories.
