This morning school buses were cancelled due to freezing rain. Our trip however was not affected, as rain was forecast all the way to Rochester.
We gathered together in the morning to watch the Chairman’s video…. …and then we finished packing up last minute items, like the robot……the batteries….…and other important things like hats and deodorant.
We are bringing the blue bear with us to cheer us on. Any guesses who is wearing it first?
We had some special visitors come with us. We’re happy to welcome back a K-Bot alumna all the way from Halifax!The bus arrived around 11AM, and we loaded all of our tools, and robot and personal gear onto the bus.It’s less than 3.5 hours to Rochester, but with weather and border crossings, we are leaving with PLENTY of time.
…which happened to be a good thing. Before hitting the highway it was discovered that our first bus had some issues, so we changed to a new bus in the Transformix parking lot.
Edit 6:00PM. K-Bots are now safe and sound in Rochester. It took a long time to cross the border today! Dinner at a diner attached to a bowling alley tonight!
Updates will be added over the next few days. Stay tuned! To follow our progress online, please check out this page.
