I can swing by in a couple hours, Christie, and run the package tracker over
to 2169. Unfortunately, I think I'm going to need to beg off the launch
though- Got notice from my job, and I really need to put some code down
this weekend if I'm going to be in a position to do anything after this
I'll come help see you guys off, and run Christie's package tracker. I can
also get a winds aloft forecast for you if you like. I have to admit that I
never got an email back from the airport owner, and I forgot to send a
follow up, I'm sorry, but we don't have permission to use that field today.
Purely mea culpa.
