    I look forward to more entries from this series! One quick idea for an incredible adventure: Strap a weather balloon and camera rig to Gus, and send him to the edge of the atmosphere! It might cost about 100 dollars, but boy would that be cool to witness!
    I also hope to start my own adventure series. In late August, I’m moving to Germany for school and I’d like to blog my travels. With some luck, my time there might just be as interesting as an astronaut teddy bear!

      I would love to do that! I’ve been thinking about maybe doing an outreach program in the community with that. I look forward to seeing you blog about your travels!
