Tuesday, June 22, 2010

The Sunseeker team arrived in Rolla, Missouri this evening. The 100 degree temperatures that ruined our chance to drive the Sunseeker have followed us from Texas to Rolla. Yesterday we displayed the solar car at the Topeka stage stop. Today we were at the Jefferson City checkpoint. The temperatures seemed higher in Jefferson City than in Broken Arrow, but it probably just felt hotter because there was no wind here and the humidity was higher. I felt bad for the drivers of the solar cars because in those closed cockpits the temperatures are usually about 15 degrees hotter than ambient. I can only imagine how uncomfortable they must have been driving to Jefferson City.
After the competing teams had left the checkpoint, we drove to Rolla and were grateful for showers and dinner.
