First-Hand Description

Xeni Jardin scored a ride on one of the inaugural Zero G Corporation flights.

She loved it.

(I'd recommend scrolling down to the bottom first, repeatedly clicking on the previous ones until you get to the beginning, in which she continually describes all the advice that she gets from people leading up to the flight. Then read it in proper sequence by hitting the "back" button for the next page.)

You're now relatively close to Zero-G's home base in Florida. Any chance you'll be taking a ride and writing about it?

BTW, thanks for the link back to my post. But could you check the syntax? It seems to point to a nonexistent page.

Sorry, John. Blame my weird laptop keyboard, which has a "Fn" key where the control key should be (so I just inserted a "v" instead of the URL on my clipboard). Fixed now.
