The AARC Green Bank tour is scheduled for August 3.  We will
gather in the NRAO parking lot at 8:30 AM, where I will hand out maps
and driving instructions for an 8:45 departure. Caravan drivers should
arrive with enough gas for a 250 mile round trip so they won’t have to
stop along the way.  The road is very hilly and twisty, so people who
get carsick should consider taking Dramamine ahead of time.  We should
arrive at Green Bank about 11:30.  Our NRAO tour guide will be Amanda
White (awhite@nrao.edu, 304 456 2164), manager of public outreach in
Green Bank.  My wife, Sherry Westfall (vscapes@cstone.net, cell phone
434 249 2877), will help to make sure we keep our ducks in a row and
everything happens as planned.… Read the rest
