Welcome to the forum, I'm sure your help will be very welcomed by the members who are lucky enough to be able to travel up there for the launch. Great to have you here!

Hi there!

I went out to the airport today on my motorbike ...... I can't imagine what it will be like around there if this thing is pulled off!
I wouldn't worry about not getting close enough to the launch site......
This country is flaaaaaat! elev= 2280 asl ..no trees over 40' high.
I may set my lawn chairs and cooler on my roof.
I wonder what frequency Davinci will be transmitting on .. I have a good scanner.
Local traffic is 122.800mhz.
I'm thinking I should set up a beer gardens and bring my P.A./sound system.... We could play Prism's " Spaceship Superstar!

Sounds like you have a party planned, have fun and make sure that you come on and tell everyone how it went afterwards! And I know exactly what it will be like around there... absolutely packed ;)

PS- Yep, that's me in the picture :D

Definitely, we'll be glad to have you join the reporter staff over at xprizenews.org

And no, I have no money to be plane hopping to Kindersley... unfortunately :? If I had money and time, I'd be going to Mojave and Kindersley and *************[REMOVED BY ADMIN (sigurd), shouldn't be public (not related to xprize)]... but both money and time are scarce for me, especially when I'm stuck way down in Florida, at least 2000 miles from anything going on with the x prize hehe

"all errors" should be ignorred, all messages are sent, the error is only "after it's sent".

I'm not able to fix it, but the webmasters at the xprize organization will fix it in time.. (a new website change is coming soon with main site white background and also this forum)

Go to http://xprizenews.org
Click on the 'About' page and scroll all the way down.
There is a link that says to register if you're interested in being a reporter for the site.

Its no $ either way, you don't pay to join, but the job is strictly on a volunteer basis. It's fun though, knowing that you are posting something that hundreds of people will read. :)
