Science Getaways: Update

BadAstronomyHero

I love science. OK, duh, but I really do. And when I go on vacation, I can't help but see science everywhere, and in every case it makes the trip more fun for me. Seeing local geology, biology, how the stars might look different at a different latitude... it adds to the vacations, makes it better.

That's why my wife and I started a company called Science Getaways. We figured there are lots of other folks out there like us who would really enjoy taking a vacation that has bonus science added in. Our first planned trip is to a gorgeous Colorado dude ranch called C Lazy U. Besides the usual amenities of such a place -- horseback riding, great food, spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains -- we're adding SCIENCE! And scientists: we have a geologist, a biologist, and an astronomer -- hey, me! -- who will be on hand to give talks about the local nature scene, and then we'll take hikes to put that new-found knowledge to practical use. I'll be running a stargazing session every evening with my new 8" Celestron telescope, and I'm hoping to do some solar observing during the day as well.

We're hoping to have the entire ranch for our group, but if we don't have enough reservations by March 1 we can't guarantee it. Space is limited, so please book now if you plan to come.

By the way, we're also on Facebook and Google+ if you'd like to add us.

I hope to see lots of BABloggees there!
