Thanks for the welcome.
I live in Newport News currently, which depending on traffic is ~1 to 6 hours from Chesapeake. I have also lived in Lynchburg & Richmond.
I grew up in Lubbock & Dallas and I have periodically resided in Galveston. TOS & the moonshot originally aired when I lived in Dallas.
I first saw "The Expanse", the episode that hooked me on ENT, when I was visiting my brother who still lives in Texas.
