Houston then Home

by on Oct.14, 2010, under Happenings

We depart Sedona on Sat­ur­day, Octo­ber 9 for Hous­ton, with a stop in Roswell, NM. It’s an excel­lent flight with a tail wind, a hour lunch/refuel stop in Roswell, then arriv­ing in Hous­ton at 5:00PM local time. Clark and Julie Black­man pick us up, and we are off to their house for a quick show­er. We are joined by Chris­tine Roms­dahl and her boy friend, Rob, for din­ner at a South Amer­i­can restaru­rant. Very nice and pro­duc­tive evening at an out­door set­ting on the lake. The next day after lunch at the wharf on Galve­ston Bay, we vis­it NASA Hous­ton. The tour includes mis­sion con­trol, the vehi­cle mock up build­ing (Shut­tle and Inter­na­tion­al Space Sta­tion), a Sat­urn Rock­et (huge) as well as a NASA his­to­ry exhib­it. . We fin­ish the day with din­ner out­doors at the Black­mans, mak­ing it a great last night of the trip.

Mon­day morn­ing we launch at 9:00 AM with a stop in Blythville, ARK and arrive back in Day­ton at 4:00 PM. Our stop in Blythville is inter­est­ing in that the air­port is a for­mer SAC base (Eak­er Air Force Base), with a 11,000ft. run­way, pret­ty quite oth­er­wise. It is a great trip cross­ing 13 states over two weeks. What made the trip great was a vari­ety of inter­est­ing and beau­ti­ful places, dif­fer­ent activ­i­ties and great people.
