Brian and I walked through the dream of flight last Saturday at the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon. It is a remarkable collection of man's earliest attempts, his most colossal attempts, and his most powerful attempts.
I can't believe this extraordinary collection exists so near us, and yet it has taken us this long to see it. We enjoyed it a lot. We marveled at the development that has taken place in a relatively short amount of time, much of it within our own lifetimes.
If you ever get the chance to see this, I highly recommend you take it. There are two separate museums, one for Aviation and one for Space; there is an IMAX Theater with breathtaking movies, and there is even an indoor water park. No kidding. So next time, we're bringing our swimsuits.
