Re: PICTURE POST II!

Thanks. I will have to put up some more, but I have like 250 of them, so it might just be a link to an album so I don't destroy the board

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I haven't had the opportunity to see any of the existing space shuttles in person, but if I could pick which one to see first it'd definitely be the Enterprise. She looks great.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

First one I saw in real life. I was awestruck. That pic is about ten minutes after we entered into the hangar and I had begun to pick my jaw up off the ground

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Okay, here's a link to the gallery of the trip: http://imgur.com/a/7xzBu#0
The guy with the shaved head in some of the pics is my friend and travel companion Johan.

I did also meet up with the lovely tsq, but we got along so well I totally forgot to take any pictures!

I took a ton of pictures on the Intrepid too. I still haven't gotten around to sorting through them all.

I was the same. Just being able to walk around and right underneath it was pretty awesome.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

^I know, right? I thought I was prepared but...I just stared at it. This awe-inspiring machine. We're on a board that deal with the make believe ships most of the time, but here was the real deal in front of my eyes.

It's really an odd thing that stuck me more than anything on this trip. All these things and places I've seen pictures of, but they where entirely different in real life. All the buildings and city just seemed out of proportion in three dimensions somehow.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

^I had the same thoughts when I saw Endeavour. Best thing ever, especially being able to see it fly overhead one last time. Fucking amazing. I'll never forget seeing the space shuttle. And the crowds in Downtown LA waiting for it to go by. Awesome. Worth waiting an hour to see it.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I didn't get to go see the Enterprise, but I have been to Hogwarts!



And for the girls: Check out m awesome shoppingness!

I am the most proud of the jumper and the purse/bag. But the Harry Potter stuff was also quite nice. I got Lupin's wand! (Bushmills with Honey is nice btw! If you want to trick someone into liking whiskey it makes a nice introduction)

So us guys can't marvel at your awesome scrounge?

I was going to say how awesome that purse is, but forget it.

Also, Lindor truffles. Yum.

I thought most men would get that "AAAAH! MY EYES!!!" As soon as shopping was mentioned. Of course you are welcome to wallow in the glory of the Trek purse and chocolates!

Shopping for certain items is permitted under the Code of Guys(tm). Beer, for instance. Also bacon. And certain T-shirts.
