This is one star party that I have always wanted to do, because it has it all. It has warm weather in the dead of winter, it is a souther location that provides access to southern objects that cannot be seen at my 39 degrees north, and it has laminar airflows off of the Gulf of Mexico.
The event lasts a week, so there will be pleny of visual observing and photography opportunities. I’ll be traveling with Doug, but some of my long-time HAL friends will be there.
The plan is to divide the driving into two legs, stopping near the half-way point near Savannah GA. We’re taking the camper, because we’re not living like savages. But really, for a week long trip, having a shelter in which we can sit out a major rain event will be nice.
