3/10/08 8:49 p.m.

It's 10:30 p.m., and we're parked on the Cocoa Beach Causeway. We're right next to the ocean, with a couple of huge cruise ships to our right, and across the bay is the Space Center. With the binoculars, I can see the shuttle. Now that it's dark, they have it all lit up. It's exciting to be here. I watched the first shuttle launch on TV, and when John Glenn went on a shuttle mission, that was just about as exciting. This is a one in a lifetime chance for me to actually be here when one launches. Only another 4 hours to go... Oh boy, am I going to make it? I'm already yawning!! Where's the coffee!!
