Here's hoping the shuttle goes up tomorrow :)

We are arriving this week, staying in Orlando. Are planning a couple days in Cape Canaveral/Cocoa Beach areas & have some things planned. Saw the shuttle canceled for Friday & planned for Monday May 2nd. Also read on the internet about huge crowds, traffic jams & people everywhere. I'm probably the opposite of everyone & hope it goes up before we arrive tomorrow so the huge crowds will dissipate a bit. Thinking if it doesn't go up tomorrow, they'll delay it another day or two? and the huge crowds will return while we are there. While a great opportunity to possibly see a shuttle go up, we were hoping our time in Cape Canaveral/Cocoa Beach to be quiet & relaxing :) All totally out of our control, but will see what happens tomorrow!

I would actually delete this post but not sure I can now? Saw today the Monday launch has been moved to later this week at the earliest, so everything should work out OK. If it does end up being Friday or Sunday, we'll just have to shuffle a few things around so we aren't there during massive crowds. Unless we decide to actually watch the shuttle. Will see what happens. Thx.

Launch is now No Earlier Than Sunday May 8 and possibly May 10. A more official announcement to be made Monday. If you have an opportunity to watch, please do so. You will not regret it.
