Dayton, OH. 4:00pm-5:30pm, Thursday.

This is a small collection of NPS sites that have artifacts and simulations of the Wright brothers’ work. They have an “original flight” virtual simulator, which is a tricky device to control.

The staff at the Interpretive Center said the Bicycle Shop would only be open until five, so we had to rush over there. We weren’t driving very fast, but two cars happened to be blocking up traffic in front of us. Finally, one pulled off at a stoplight, when one of the lethargic drivers paused to confront us with the statement “You can’t go no faster than 35 anyway.”

We were a bit shocked to hear this, so without much thought I said, “Oh yeah? Watch this.” Mysteriously, our vehicle was capable of exceeding 35 mph.

Once at the shop, the NPS staff member was great and even stayed open longer to chat with us.
