Well, this sounds like a go then, we have at least one carload of people 
and probably two.

I explored around on the JPaerospace website and it seems they typically 
launch once or twice a year.  The most recent was Away 39, 40, 41, 42, 
on Sept 26 & 27th, 2009:

It was the chair in space thing they did for Toshiba.  Their blog is 
very active, they are working towards something but I can't figure out 
what it is?!?

Someone should probably look into that MicroTim digital altimeter.

I found a pretty cool video (ignore sound) that shows some of their 
workshop, and their cute "Sky Pup" airplane:

Anyway, in terms of scheduling, I'd prefer a weekend trip (Saturday or 
Sunday), sometime in the next month, unless their next launch is soon. 
The 6th of March would be pretty ideal.  Does this sound OK to everyone? 
  Obviously we'll have to coordinate with them as well, but it would be 
good to get our ducks in a row before we start that :-)
