Madison, Alabama is not actually near any particular airport that I could get a flight from Boston to, so conducting the interview required a 100+ mile drive from Atlanta and back in the same day. I made my flight but immediately regretted not driving in that direction the previous evening when I passed the U.S. Space Camp on the way to his house.
