back from hiking... we did 40 miles in three days. not bad. saw lots of deer... one walked through our camp when dad and i were playing poker. the next night was more... exciting. a mama bear and her two cubs walked behind our tent, and crossed the path to climb up the hillside in front of us. i was glad we were smart and burned the trash and didn't have any food out. a mama bear can be scary.

visited Green Bank, WV.... got to see lots of really awesome telescopes and met up with the SARA guys (Society of American Radio Astronomers, i think). i had my own personal tour of a telescope then, after chatting with some Hams, and we listened to Virgo. i was psyched.

that's it for now. going to St Louis in a week or so. must be back by Matt's birthday ~ it was an order.
