The misadventures of Commander Merlin and the crew of RV-103

April 23rd, 2010 Mission #2 Westward Ho is Accomplished

We awoke that morning and struck camp.  We exited without any problems and finished the final leg home.  We decided to come down Florida Route 19 instead of I-75 and had a nice scenic drive.

The last 20 miles were the longest.  We hit Clearwater traffic right at rush hour and the going was slow.  But, at 1730 hrs we arrived at the RV Processing Facility and parked RV-103.  Keeping with the 30 year tradition of all Shuttle Commanders, I issued the final command by meowing “Wheels Stop.”  Our mission was done, more items crossed off our bucket list, and we were home.

RV-103 will be prepared and repaired for our next mission.  Meanwhile, I and crew will spend a well deserved week home resting and catching up on personal business.

Until our next mission, I and the crew of RV-103 thank you for following our misadventures and hope you will join us again for Mission #3.
