NASA’s Apollo 11, Mars 2020 have same goal, collect Samples

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – NASA’s Apollo 11 command module Columbia splashed down in the Pacific Ocean, fulfilling President John F. Kennedy’s goal to land a man on the Moon and return him safely to Earth on July 24th, 1969.

Among the mission’s many firsts was the acquisition and return of the first samples from another celestial body. Findings based on the 47 pounds (21.5 kilograms) of lunar rock and soil rewrote the textbooks on both the Moon and solar system, and the samples are still being studied today by researchers using new and more sensitive instruments.

Dodging the Roadkill: Riding the Rockies

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColorado Springs, CO – I just returned from my first trip to Colorado.  What an experience!  I’ve never seen such beautiful country!

One of the many day trips I took was through the Rockies.  It took me a couple of miles before it REALLY hit me that I was actually in THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS!  Almost a surreal experience.

The first thing I noticed was the smell.  The cool crisp mountain air filled with the fresh smell of pine trees.  It’s a beautiful entrance to one of the world’s most famous landmarks.

Dodging The Roadkill: Rain Riding

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’ve only been on this journey since January, 2016.  I’ve avoided rain like the plaque.  All of my trips were planned around the weather forecast.  If I was visiting friends in Texas, then I would check the weather between here and there and if there wasn’t a clear path, then I waited until there was.

What a WHIMP!

The bottom line is that the more you ride and the more miles you log, you are GOING to ride in the rain!  I don’t mean a drizzle or two, I mean a full on downpour.

The decision to continue riding during a storm is entirely up to the rider, and you don’t want to be full on STUPID, but sometimes you just get caught.  If you’ve prepared to encounter the rain, meaning you have “geared up” for it, then it’s no big deal.  You carry on.
