Getting to Hawaii is…

…made easier when the airline over compensates for mistakes by bumping you to first class

…made less pleasant by the lack of outlets in St Louis and LA airports

…made easier with good astronomy on the other end

…made harder by the need to prepare to present at the other end

… accomplished in one piece. I’m here. I’m in my room. I’m ready to blog. I have a meeting for the 2009 International Year of Astronomy (friend them on MySpace!) tomorrow, and a got talked into giving a talk on Sunday by a fellow EPO person I ran into on the bus from the airport to the hotel. The main event starts Sunday night.

I hope you come along for the ride.

    Glad you made it there in one piece.:) Am looking forward to reading what your experiences are there.

    As to the IYA, I’m already on it (at Myspace). It’s something I’m looking forward to participating in (in official or unofficial ways) as time goes by.

    Glad to know you’re onboard, Kevin! They’ll be lots of ways to get involved and there is room for everyone to get in on the mix 🙂
