You got a car? Want to hire one with me? I only research about asteroid
mining: I don't really know how to get out of San Francisco

>>> SpaceX are launching an oceanography satellite tomorrow, and also trying
>>> another one of their booster rocket return landings tomorrow at Vandenberg,
>>> which is about 300 miles south of San Francisco. The launch is timed for
>>> 10.42AM Sunday.
>>> Is anyone interested in driving down to see it? A regular rocket-watcher

>>> *If you are on the fence about driving to view...* You should take the
>>> gamble to come see this launch. It's extremely rare to have a launch be on
>>> the weekend, during the day and have a 100% weather clearance three days in
>>> advance. This is the perfect launch to see if you live 200 miles away and
>>> are considering the drive. It's always a roll of the dice but the odds are
>>> best on this one.
>>> I don't drive, but I'd happily pony up fuel or even a car hire to
>>> accompany someone else down there. We'd have to get up super early, and the
>>> launch could always be postponed or cancelled for non-weather reasons, but
>>> remember: we do these things not because they are easy, but because they
>>> are hard, and also for the chance of wandering around outside military
>>> installations and having lunch at weird space exploration boom towns
