Looking forward to the launch. Tripoli Wisconsin did a great job the previous time they hosted LDRS.
Driving home from Lucerne this morning we are making plans. Keep it below 10k and waterproof is good.
My wife is excited about going as she is from Milwaukee. Not dusty
26 hours, 1800 miles.

I might be able to do this one. One thousand miles, 15 hours away. All depends on the cost of gas and motels.

1 hr, 50 minute flight or a 13hr drive at $5.00/gallon for me
Best check on the availability of rental cars at the destination. I'm making a long (for me) road trip, end of this month, about 3500 miles. I could fly part of it which would cut down time by over two days...but $350 to rent a car at that end IF one is available, plus shipping charges for rockets, plus shipping them back, and packaging them at each end... not to mention the two-hour drive to the nearest decent-sized airport (Nashville), plus parking charges there...

Throw in the fact that when driving I can leave whenever I want and (mostly) stay in one place as long as I want, and now the cost of gasoline isn't as big of a deal as it could be.

Which campsite would be better, Sunrise or Sunset?
Edit..I assume no camping at the actual launch site.
