The Huntsville Hiatus

For those paying attention to our map page, we stopped for about ten days in Huntsville.  We stayed at Ditto Landing, and it is a fantastic marina with great amenities and lots of great people.  Initially, we were headed here to wait out some strong storms.  However, when leaving Guntersville lock, the boat made a new noise, one that could not be ignored.

So, I spend a few days like this, learning how to talk out of my you-know-what so that Kristen and I could communicate.

In the end, it turned out to be time to replace our damper plate.  Doesn't this look noisy to you?

Oooh, new and shiny!  (and thankfully, much quieter...)

So, we had plenty of time to hang about in Huntsville.  See the sights and spend some time with new friends.  We explored the space museum, and it was really amazing.  It was a great history lesson on the race to the moon, especially all the rocket development.  There was also more recent work on the space station, including ongoing support for the lab work.  Very cool.  Maybe, one day, I'll be an astronaut (do they have to work on their head?)
