The Mobile Observatory Project's Facebook Page is Officially Up!
Thank you to a number of folks who have helped with facilitating and finalizing a number of these stops; we are so happy to have your help in making this happen. It's only a matter of time now before the Mobile Observatory comes through!
As we make our BEST efforts to work as many as we can in the schedule, keep in mind the Mobile Observatory gets a whopping 8.5 MPG at best; some cities WILL fall off the schedule - so please, if you want us to come to your city contact me ASAP, even if you see that something is being finalized.
We will need to put our focus on upcoming stops once we hit the road, and hope to have the majority of the schedule confirmed over the next few weeks before we are off!
To those in Hawaii and Alaska - WE HEAR YOU! Trying to make it happen.
Have a wonderful week! Be safe!
The Mobile Observatory Project tour begins in 19 days!
The RV is currently being retrofitted, to be completed by the end of May! SO SOON! Thank you to Farber Specialty Vehicles for coming up with some great ideas for the RV - including the exterior design that you see on the main page.
We've been very pleased with the progress; the computer station that was recently installed looks GREAT! It will soon be sent off to be sanded down and painted... can't wait to see the final product!
Outside of waiting for this 36-ft beauty to be done, we are working on all the logistics and planning of the tour, from getting our home ready to rent out, to finding and confirming locations for us to host a gathering/event. We could not be more excited for the opportunity to visit Canada as well (where I was born and raised) and have our passports ready to go! Ben hopes to be able to show some young minds their very first sunspots :). We've been given so many tips and pointers from many (please keep sending them our way - the advice is truly appreciated!)
To those who have kindly offered to host our family- we will be reaching out soon to narrow down timelines. Thank you for your generosity and kindness!
Please feel free to direct any questions to Kat@observatoryproject.com or Ben@observatoryproject.com
Our blog covers the journey as we roll along - sharing stories of people we've met and engaged with, places we've seen, the discourse between a couple with two animals sharing <300 sq ft of moving living space, and more!
