About the closest experience I have had to being in space, was the five seconds or so that I was weightless while free falling from a Cesna type aircraft, during the one and only time I was sky diving. After that, I'm definitely an 'armchair moon walker'!
My other interests include: genealogy; armchair auto racing (watching, that is, mainly formula one); model railroading - also currently from an armchair perspective). I have a lot of armchairs!
I also enjoy traveling. This activity has been curtailed lately as my wife Leanne and myself are starting our family. We currently have a son (Christopher) now two years old, and a second child on the way (due November 21). My son is already interested in cars, trains, and rocket ships. Gee, did I have something to do with that?
In relation to the ALSJ, my current specialty I guess is scanning documents to pdf format for posting on the site. I'm currently doing the A17 USGS paper. Next I will move on to the rest of the A16 USGS paper. I also have access to the A14 USGS paper and so I will get to that as well. The A14 document has an incredible traverse map (about 22 inches X 34 inches) that I'm thinking about trying to scan in soon. I can't wait!
It's a real pleasure to be able to help out with the ALSJ. To quote Neil Armstrong, "It's an honor to be able to participate here".
