Kennedy Space Center Pt.4:Then and Now

OK, the plan originally was to update 1 or 2 of my NASA blogs with pictures my mom sent me in the mail which were taken during our 2 previous trips in 1987 and 1992. I completely forgot we went there 2 times when I was younger. The trips just blended in my head and my family traveled a lot…plus I got old. After thinking it over, I just decided to add a part 4 to my NASA blog and only do pictures showing past and present pics of NASA. These pics show the change in NASA as well as the change in me. Get ready to laugh at my crazy ass clothes my mom forced me to wear back in the day. Enjoy. If you read the other blogs on this some of the pic might look familiar to you. Since the over all theme of my travel blogs as of late have to do with road-trips, its important to note that the 1992 trip was in fact a road trip from Michigan to Florida in which we spent a few days in Tennessee.

In addition, if you haven’t read the rest of this series on my trip to Kennedy the links are at the bottom.

  1. I like seeing what it was like in 1987 and now. I also like hearing your impression from an 8 year old’s point of view and present day in your earlier blogs. I have enjoyed all of your blogs on the Kennedy Space Center.
