It looks like I might be bringing some crappy weather with me next weekend. If it's too crappy to fly, what else is there to do? Is there a music scene in ABQ? Gun ranges, paintball, zoos, museums?

There is a fabulous zoo, a very nice aquarium, and a botanical park all close to each other, as well as a list of great museums.

I would highly recommend the Natural History Museum, as well as the Atomic Museum, in addition to the zoo and the aquarium.

Can't go wrong with any of those!

I went out at the White Sands Missile Range, about 4:00. There was soft but very choppy lift, and 2-minute+ flights were doable, repeatably.

But man-oh-man, as the sun went down behind the Organ Pipes, did it get cold!

Yours, Greg
