We are on for the November Launch, Kip had no reservation about us flying. The family, I believe, is pleased with our support and the kindness offered by us. I keep offering any help we can give, so far, they have no addtional requests.

Times are yet to be determined but it looks like around Noon till 5:00 both days. Tune in for up-to-date info closer to that weekend. If you want to volunteer to do anything please contact Ralph at: roccprez@prodigy.net.

We want to make this launch effortless for the Wiliams family.

I went out to see the Williams yesterday and to inspect our stuff. When I called the Williams earlier yesterday Mrs. Williams said that someone had gone in and stole a pig and messed around in the buildings. They started yesterday beefing up the entrance and installing an electric fence around the house and sheds.

First thing is, we are going to need to coordinate with Kip about getting keys to unlock the gates and according to his brother-in-law we will need to disable the electric fence and re-connect when we leave. Also, if anyone goes down there to look for stuff they are going to need to check in with them. They have a lot of help with running the farm and they don't know everyone. So, there will need to be a little coordination effort.

Stay in touch, more to come soon.
