Launch time set

Final preparations are underway. Hopefully we will launch in just a few hours. The team is assembling right now to drive West to Ridgeway, which was selected because of an ideal launch site, just on the edge of reception, and far enough that the predictions don’t have the balloon landing in Lake Michigan. If all goes well we will launch at around 10am, ascend for 1 hour, pop near Watertown, and land near Germantown. Of course, we may overfill or underfill the balloon, poorly estimate the weight, or experience different weather than expected. Today’s going to be interesting.
