... 17 500 mph, ground level to low earth orbit (120 - 600 miles).
As we exit the ride, the Delta wannabe lady comes over and starts yelling at me, giving me **** for the video camera debacle. Oh, its just like the good ole days! I dismiss her with suitable Canadian aplomb and head over to the tour bus area. I am met with, literally, a gaggle of Delta ladies, all of whom want to take my picture before I get on the tour bus.

Waking up to a glassy ocean I had no choice. Today I would paddle the Atlantic.
Pulling my ocean kayak down the stairs at the Tuckaway Shores was easy, then about a 60 yard drag along the sand to the water. I put on my flotation vest and pushed off into the cool green water. The ocean didn’t have the bait fish nor the feeding frenzy of a few days ago. The shore break had mellowed as well.
I paddled out. The massive rolling swells floated beneath me ...
