Sea Base - Day 2
June 16, 2007
Andrew C. and Matt O. are doing a great job preparing breakfast. The rest of the guys are packing up our gear. Billy is motivated this morning. He’s excited to get to our next campground. But first, Kennedy Space Center awaits us! Just found out that everyone is wearing our red shirts except Chris B.. He forgot to pack it. There’s one in every crowd!!!
We arrived at Kennedy Space Center at 8:45 AM and purchased our tickets. They did not give a Scout discount. Big disappointment, especially since I called three times to ask in advance. We had a great day and saw a lot of cool stuff. The simulator was great, made even better by the fact that I sat next to Mr. Hidinger. After the visitor center, we rode in a bus over to the Titan / Saturn Rocket area. Wow, those things are huge! Next, we saw the space station area. It was close to 5:30 PM when we left Kennedy and headed south. Fort Pierce State Park was buggy! We had pizza for dinner, except Mr. Carlson and I. We stuck to our diets and had salad. Everyone jumped into their tents as soon as they were set up to escape the bugs.
