That guy certainly is persistent. His photogrammetry work is pretty impressive too. He must have all the time in the world to do those projects. And his CNC machine is awesome [to paraphrase in a way my grandkids might understand].

I was at that observation point in 1995 [at least I think that was where we went] not long after it was completed. The funding for the road to that observatory came from your pocket, picked by Tom Foley who was the speaker of the house during that era. The road connecting that observatory from I-5 was a work of art in itself and if I remember right was 30 or 40 miles of beautiful scenery. The mountain was pretty much obscured by cloud cover the day we were there, but every once in a while, we could see the crater.
