Re: Smell

The Marriott used to provide in-room products under the brand Energy. They switched, but still get the stuff from Bath and Bodyworks. Reminds me of Camp.

Good question. Red and yellow seem to be the most significant, if there is anything to it.

Re: Packing for Space Camp: THE VIDEO!

Back to the subject of packing for Space Camp, I brought a robe this year which was comfortable and modest for leaving the Hab room and heading to and from the showers/SCUBA/etc. Also, if you're a coffee drinker like I am, a cup heater coil (AC) will allow you to heat up a (ceramic) cup of water for...

Re: You know you're addicted to Space Camp-

56. When you ask for an audience with the Space Camp CEO in her office, and she greets you by your Callsign, turns to her children, and says (pointing to the fifteen Camp wings on your lanyard) "See kids, this is what it looks like when you're addicted to Space Camp." Happened last Friday.

Re: Adult Week Long October 2016

I completely understand what you are saying. I am sure that PK told you that we had one difficult person on our team last year. The rest of the team, however, was so great that it made up for it. We had Bob Springer as our Astronaut-Counselor and it was also amazing and a great learning experience....

Re: Adult Week Long October 2016

I only relax when I drag my luggage into my Marriott room. Until then, my MD has provided valium to get me through the nerve-wracking travel hassles. I've had too many experiences with missed flights, lost luggage, and delays to enjoy traveling by air. Packing has begun. Checked bag contains all the...

Heh heh, no real weapons at Camp, of course. But if I ever do AC, I want to be your downed REO when we're crawling around in the woods at night, being hunted.

Re: Packing for Space Camp: THE VIDEO!

I heard they slapped some fresh paint around in Hab1. AC is barracks-style, they probably have to make their bed in the morning. Bug spray is a good one to add to the list. Zika will shrink your brain, from what I've heard. :roll: A robe and flip flops, power strip, duct tape, garotte, bandana, hi-t...

We callsigned her "Syndrome," which meant nothing to me at the time. She's sweet and evil all at the same time. I adore her.

If you're lucky, she'll give you "The Look."

Re: Visit Marshal Space Flight Center during ASA?

Yeah, they suspended ALL Camper tours on base after 9/11, but they came back a few years ago. Unfortunately, foreign nationals are banned from coming on the base (if they bother to board the bus and check IDs, which they almost always do). Steve would be most familiar with the tour schedules.
