Texas 2021: [Day 1 - Missouri] [Day 2 - Dallas] [Day 3 - Boca Chica] [Day 4 - South Padre Island] [Day 5 - South Padre Island] [Day 6 - South Padre Island] [Day 7 - Corpus Christi] [Day 8 - Arkansas] [Day 9 - Heading Home]

Saturday, January 30, 2021: It was still dark and no one was in the office yet when we quietly drove away at 6:30 AM.
An hour later, we were in Missouri, ...
... and an hour or so after that, we were crossing the mighty Mississippi ...
... into Illinois.
A curbside pickup McDonald's lunch was followed an hour later by reaching the Indiana state line. We were racing a snowy storm front and we could see the front of it ahead of us, so we were winning.
Welcome to Indy!
It was 3:30 PM when we dropped off our beautiful but filthy The Ocho at the storage facility.
Tom took a photo of the trip information before we left the storage facility. Total miles driven: 2978. Average miles per gallon: 15.5. From here, we headed home and arrived ten minutes before a winter storm warning went into effect.
Our story would end here but you're probably wondering how that test launch went. When we got home, there were still two Starships in the launching area.
The South Padre Island livestreams were still going. We were able to take this screenshot ...
... and figure out where it was being broadcast from, using a photo we had taken at Isla Blanca State Park two days earlier. That satellite dish on the balcony gives it away.
But it would still be another three days before the launch finally happened on February 2, which made us very happy that we had decided to leave when we did.

** THE END **
