Way up in the Lucerne Valley of California, in a dry lake bed, twice a year a great even takes place: ROCtober
I was talked into this by a co-worker. Reluctant at first, in the end the kids loved it, and i'm thrilled i got to go. Thanks Ariel!! Albeit brief, and waaaaaaaaaay too much traffic (thanks California), we had an amazing time camping and watching rockets launch.
This was also the first time ever the kids built their own rockets, and launched them.
These future trailblazers are well on their way to changing the world! Huzzah!
