Road Tests

Last Sunday I was part of a team to test the roads. Fellow shuttle driver Nate and I were teamed up with Sally and Brett from CRREL (US Army Corp of Engineers, Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory)  to measure and test the roads.  We spent almost 6 hours on our day off having fun in the sun out on the road to Pegasus.  It was a beautiful, sunny day with very little wind.  I'm not exactly sure what we were doing, besides collecting data, but it was fun.
