On hiatus…

No, nothing is wrong, I’m taking a short break from blogging.  I’m spending this week traveling through central and southern Illinois surveying climate stations.  This is part of a nation-wide project to see how reliable this network really is.  If you want to learn more about it and what I’m doing with it, visit http://www.surfacestations.org.

It’s been much fun and very refreshing.  Just me, the open road, Google Earth and Verizon wireless – what more does one need?  And truly, being able to get away from everything else for a week and visiting people in small towns is good for the soul.  I may make this a yearly pilgrimmage.

A small aside about Verizon data service; it’s freaking awesome.  I have been to the smallest of the small towns (Boody, Assumption, Oconee, Nokomis, etc.) in our state and the data service seems to work everywhere.  It is beyond cool to use Google Earth, live, on my laptop, while I’m traveling…

Anyway, check out what Ben has been blogging at the Official WebSite of the Space Elevator Games; http://www.spaceelevatorgames.org.  You can stay up to date with the preparation for the Games there.

Testing for the Space Elevator Games begins next week.  I fly out to LAX on Sunday and will spend the entire week at Dryden.  I’ll have lots to post then…
