Day 10 – back to the space center

So today I spent driving back to KSC from Key West.  It’s still ridiculously hot and muggy – I didn’t sleep much at all last night.  Drove through a couple of rain showers and it was looking a bit nasty, but on arriving here in Cocoa, things are looking sunny again and the forecast calls for 80% chance of good weather for the 5:40 a.m. launch tomorrow.

I’m going to grab a bite to eat and relax a little before heading over to the space center around midnight.  And I’m staying in a hotel tonight – though I won’t actually be sleeping here – but it’s nice to hang out anyway.  I don’t know how people managed to live here before air conditioning – I’m a wimp.  Just standing in the shade I was sweating like crazy!

If all goes according to, the latest, plan I’m going to start the drive home tomorrow sometime late morning.  I figure I’ll come back and grab a couple hours sleep, take a shower, and hit the road.  We’ll see…
