Scavenger Hunt Beside a Sleeping Giant
This is another of Thot's MicroVirtuals. Because Virtual caches are no longer accepted I use Micro caches to lead you to these displays.
The first stage of this cache is in Rocket Park at the Johnson Space Center. There's a real Saturn 5 rocket here -- the rocket that took men to the moon. There are also rocket displays from the Mercury and Gemini manned space programs.
You must drive past the Space Center guard shack and pause to tell them where you're going. Don't let this intimidate you, Rocket Park is open to the public. The hours are not posted, but I was told the area opens at 9AM and closes at 6PM. The guard who told me this seemed confident about the closing time, but I got the feeling he was guessing about when it opens, so if you're adventurous you can try earlier, then report the results in your log. [I've now driven by and seen the gates open at 8AM.] The final location is about 3000 feet (driving or walking) from the first stage.
