A Kayaking / Marine Study / Asteroid Occultation Adventure at Tomales Bay

Oct 1-2, 2016

This trip was built around helping Chris K doing some study work at Tomales Bay, and an occultation by the asteroid Laplace. Ted Swift and C Anderson in Twin Falls Idaho were already signed on, and even though the latest Gaia data shifted the path north a bit and left odds at Chicken Ranch Beach at only 18%, it was worth a go, as long as my health allowed. My virus of early in the week was beaten back and by Friday evening I was feeling good enough to sign back on for this trip
