JPL Trip Last Wednesday

A customer of the shop, John, works at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA so we went out to camp and visit with him. He lives close to the facility and a cool campground so we met him late Tuesday night along with another friend of the shop Erinn. Chris, Jeo, Errin, Jon, and I made our way up to the campsite through some single track and set up camp while making a quick fire. This was the warmest I have camped in since being in California and it was pretty nice. We had some leftover barbeque chicken mixed in with some chicken/dried rice vacuum sealed camp meal and it was delicious. After drinking a beer or two it was time to hit the hay. In the morning we made our way onto the JPL property and Jon gave us the quick tour. It was awesome seeing everything they do for NASA and all of the Mars rovers and such. Very very cool. We then had lunch in Pasadena and slowly made our way back up the mountain to Topanga. All in all a great trip to JPL, thanks Jon!
