White Sands National Monument

Do they still let you sand-ski in the park? Or are you only allowed to look at weapons of mass destruction?

Wow, I could never imagine what the moondust in Arthur C. Clarke's "A Fall of Moondust" would look like, but that flowing sand matches the description perfectly! If they ever make a movie adaptation of that book, I think I know where they would shoot it...

well, let me try this again! my computer keeps just shuting off periodically in the middle of stuff. so if i ever drop off for a while it'll be if i have to get the computer fixed or replace it. (i hope not) it'll depend on the expense on how long it takes.(it sucks being poor) :down: oh well it works now! 😊
all that to say i think the sand surfing is really cool. i didn't know we had a missle museum of sorts out there. what do they say- if you don't remember past mistakes you will be doomed to repeat them.

we do have car museums df. not lamenting them as weapons though, celebrating 'classic' older models and unusual prototypes. there is a classic car museum in canton, ohio. I've been in it and it is kinda neat.
