Sounds like a great experience - I'll try it too.

We did visit the space center one time and were astounded by the size of the things. Even though you KNOW they are big, seeing them in person gives you a whole different perspective.

I love the Kennedy Space Center! This would certainly get me to make a return visit.

And not a giant mouse in sight, which is a good thing.

KSC is one of the few (only?) local attractions which are (is?) worth visiting, IMO. I get there about every 2 years, usually when we have visitors from another planet, er, state.

Thanks for letting us know about that Nicole. I'm going. Now if I could get a ride in the real shuttle, that would really be great.

Alright! I didn't know everyone would be that generous. I'll set up a fund.

When I get there, I'll send everyone a picture postcard.

Hey Ned, sorry but I don't happen to have an extra $100K lying around at the moment. Do you take Green Stamps?

Bob, you're showing your age.

When I was 19, our family took a 6 week road vacation and drove across America. We were in Nevada and running on fumes. My Dad, absolutely refused to buy gas, until we came across a station which gave out green stamps, when you bought the gas. We finally found one, and I swear we coasted into the place.

Do you think I can find an S&H Redemption Store where I can turn in the books for the ride?

Believe it or not, they are still around: S&H GreenPoints

Quote:
Yes! S&H (Sperry & Hutchinson), the people who invented rewards currency with our famous S&H Green Stamps, have brought them into this century as S&H greenpoints, an online rewards currency that, just like our Green Stamps, never expire!
