    Who's going and where are you coming from?

    I think I can make it to Florida from New Mexico in ~3 days. Once they announce the launch window if there's a >50% chance of a launch I'll leave for Florida. I have the benefit of currently being self-employed. I spoke to my boss and he's cool with me taking off for a couple weeks whenever :D

    I have to find a business trip to take me there. Time to start bugging relationships!
    Cross-country convoy? Do it like cyclists, draft, take relays, beat a record...

    Depending on when they start declaring concrete dates, we'll probably head down from NC. I was there for for CRS-4, CRS-6, CRS-9, and GOES-R.

    I've been considering the trip out to see my first ever launch. But I'm very concerned that there are going to be a LOT of delays.

    If the weather and other conditions look positive...
    I will fly to MIA from GIG and drive up in my Tesla. I do really want to see this launch.
    Of course that depends on dates and clearing conflicts.
    This stands to be the noisiest launch in decades!:cool:

    And if Elon is to be believed, a reasonable likelihood of the largest firework display in decades. :) Just kidding... I hope...

    As I turn fifty this december, this would ne perfect birthday present from me to me. :p

    But unfortunately the launch will likely to be postponed several times and it is too difficult because of that.
