Thursday 16 December 1999
I did a little shopping today after finally getting some sleep after a big night. I walked down to the factory outlets and visited the Nike store. I ended up purchasing a raincoat, Nike cap and gloves. These should help in the colder climates up north.
Unfortunately the shuttle launch was postponed for 24 hours. This was after we had paid $30 each to shuttle out to a viewing spot (the fee was non-refundable). Disappointed on return this turned our day into watching television and later back to the now traditional drinking & cards.
It’s not looking good for tomorrow’s launch but we will cut the Magic Kingdom short in order to make our shuttle at 4.30 pm.
