Just your usual day

up in New Hampshire.  Sailing on a beautiful lake in near perfect weather with good friends and then working the International Space Station!

Another fine post from outdoorsman and QRPer extraordinaire, Jim W1PID.

You know, while reading this, it occurred to me that as the last Shuttle mission ends with Atlantis landing Thursday morning, our manned spaceflight program is reaching a very low point during the Anniversary Week of the Apollo 11 Lunar Landing mission.

From space dominance to a ride in the backseat in 42 years.  From boldly expanding our horizons with a great "We can do it" attitude to "Nah, it's not really worth it anymore".  Very sad - to me at least.
