JB, your response to Bart's 'Touché' post is one that appears to have been lost. Maybe you could re-address it? Somehow I felt it was important and I am trying to remember the rest of the messages <grins>

Good to know that Walt is able to travel. The BA situation is getting worrying...

I would be disappointed to miss the 100 attempt due to industrial relations! It may be a small project on a global scale but it is one that means a lot to me <grins>

JB - Right now you have me, Jeanette and Ron on the list. Our child care situation has come together completely yet, so it may be necessary for Jeanette to sit out. If we can find someone to watch the kids fur the duration of the attempts then she is of course going to be in on it. Just wanted to let you know as you plan and count numbers.

Thx

Mark
Too Much Fun

Sorry, no Airstream, just Southwest Airlines... I googled it, about 2900 miles of driving one way. Let's see, (5800/12mpg)*$3.00gal = $$$$

I do need a ride from Portland to Long Beach though so if you want to set your Airstream up at the airport I'd be glad to ride in the back all the way to long beach. I'd have to have the refrigerator running off of propane with a couple of adult beverages in it...

Hmmm... Adult beverages?

Aside from that it appears that the next magic number has been achieved. The 9 x 9 grid is there to be realised <grins>

That is four concentric circles with one kite in the middle and four groups of 16 and a static cross amongst other possibilities.
