I could use some, found when we had an abundance in the past, using a juicer works as it freezes nice.

Larry ,

You beat me to the grapefruit. We also have a bunch and will bring some for all who want some!

Group,

My wife wants to bring to the rally, "Spaceshot" Roasted Shrimp Cocktail,
"Fuel Injected" Fruit Salad and Baked Pasta w/ "Meteor Sauce". You may need Space suits to eat the "Meteor Sauce" but it will be worth it!

Bill

Yummy -- very interested. I can certainly take a few off your hands. Thanks for offering it up.

I am so looking forward to this launch!

See everyone there. Thanks again to Laura -- organizer extraordinaire -- for giving us this wonderful opportunity!

Debbie

Yummmmm....yellow grapefruit are the tastiest and yet are seldom found in groceries and fruit stands. Thanks so much for offering to share the harvest.

Looking forward to seeing everyone for blast-off!

Less Than One Week to Launch

Mon, 01 Feb 2010 08:47:14 AM CST


At NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, prelaunch activities are in full swing this week with the official launch countdown to space shuttle Endeavour's STS-130 mission set to begin at 2 a.m. EST Feb. 4.

Teams at Launch Pad 39A will be packing the astronauts' spacesuits into Endeavour today.

Meanwhile, the six STS-130 crew members who will fly to the International Space Station entered quarantine yesterday and now are on a sleep schedule to match their evening and overnight work hours during the mission. They will conduct final integrated ascent training in the motion base simulator today at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston and will be flying to Kennedy tomorrow night.

Last week, a water suppression system pipe leaked at Kennedy's Launch Control Center and workers have made progress during the weekend drying walls and carpets. This leak is not expected to hamper the liftoff of Endeavour at 4:39 a.m. EST Feb. 7.

In Long Beach Mississippi pre launch activites are also in full swing for the blastoff of the Airstream Landyacht Clipper Bus toward Kars Park I scheduled for Thrusday morning.

KARS Park is filling

(Just a cut-n-paste from the mass email I sent out. I'm just worried one of those PM's isn't going to make it to the intended reciepient. )
-----------------------------------------------------------
Okay - my worst fear about this Rally is coming to fruition... the Park it is filling rapidly with RVs!

I just met Lyle & Margie over at KARS and we found that it is over 50% filled. Taking into account that a number of sites are out of service, this means there were only about 18 sites open: 2 riverfront, 7 in the South area, 9 in the North area - none are actually together but more scattered. There are a few retired PAFB guys having an annual get-to-gether; others visiting for launch; another just working on his Airstream!

So, the story has changed and now it is looking like a number (if not most) of us might end up without an improved site = no power/no water. There are an additional 10 sites to the South that I was told would not be available at all. However, another camper said that during New Years, KARS did open that area. Who knows if they had operable utilities though... Maybe we could get some $$$ and bribe them?

Please feel free to contact me by email or cell. I'll try to assist. Lyle & Margie have the Guest Pass - so you are welcome to come earlier if your schedule permits. And I may take some extra time off work to head that way as well. Contact me if you plan to come early and we'll work to have someone on-site to bring you in!

Laura

Boondocking

Laura,

No need to worry. As long as we have access to the park boondocking is not a problem. Who needs damn electricity anyway?

I certainly agree -- access to the park is the big deal -- we're going to see a shuttle launch!!!!
