I know the password to your laptop. Oh and changing it won't help since I'm the admin on it and have my own super secret password. LaughTongue

I can see it now, I'm going to have to order a tunnel suit... no way I'm going to fly around in there in one of the loaner-one-size-fits-none suits... Laugh

You can just use the suit you use when skydiving.

I stopped by on my way hoe from mile hi tonight, it was too dark to get any pics but the back exterior wall is about half a days work from being finished and the majority of the steel for the exterior in the front is up. the bottom of the air column is yet to be installed, and my bedroom on the first floor should be finished by the end of next weekTongue

I was just going to sleep on the net myself. I will need earplugs, but I think my "sleep number" is about 30MPH.

Does anyone know if they are still hiring? I sent in resume, cover letter, application, and would sell my soul to be a tunnel instructor at SkyVenture Colorado! Wink I'm sure the competition is tough but but but...

In reply to:

no they aren't, they are saving their last instructor position for when I get out of the militaryTongue

seriously though, i'm pretty sure they already have a full staff, but you could always email norm and ask him, he's pretty good about getting back to me when i email him.

Re: [Hooknswoop] Wind Tunnel in Colorado [In reply to] Can't Post

What are the buildings next door? I haven't been there and want to know what facilities are within walking distance.

Kinda hoping for:

1. A place to eat.
2. A hotel.
3. A store to buy blank DVDs, water, etc.
4. A chocolatier (hey, this is a wishlist, right?)

1. A place to eat. - Yup. Lots of that. Brewery Bar III (great mexican food) is literally in the shadow of the tunnel, Bennigans is a few hundred feet away, and there are tons of other places within very easy walking distance
2. A hotel - Yup. There is one right across the road. I think it's called extended stay america or something like that. There is a mariott in the area too.
3. A store to buy blank DVDs, water, etc. -There is a best buy across the highway. I don't think there is a grocery store in the area though.
4. A chocolatier - I am sure there is one in the Park Meadows mall across the highway.

edited to add: here is a complete list of everything in the entertainment district. Everything on this list is within easy walking distance.

The only "important things" left are the turning vanes in the basement, the variable frequency drives and the inlet contractor. Why are they wasting so much time making it look pretty??Mad
