Congrats Jake! It looks like you had a worthwhile drive to Vandenberg.
Although I was invited to the "Press Site", I went up to 4,200 foot high
Santa Ynez Peak instead due to the forecast of marginal weather at the
base. It looks like the weather was better at the base was than predicted.

The advantage of being a reporter for a Delta II launch is that you're
allowed to get about 25 feet closer to the pad than the general public.
