something everyone should do. Points out yet again how stupid our current President is and how he says anything for a buck.

Good tour with lots of information. First 40 minutes were in the hut watching videos and listening to a presentation. Next 30 minutes we spent looking at old parts from past prototypes. Then on the bus to drive around with lots more information. Date shake was a nice treat.
