A Farewell to Earth pt. 1

Al will be leaving Earth tomorrow to embark on his 5-month journey to the Orion Nebula for the Trapezium Triathlon. Hopefully his knee will heal nicely in suspended animation and we'll see him back here next year fit as a fiddle for the Martian 2014!!

We took him to Slow's in Detroit for a farewell party:

Checking out the cask ale tap.


It was all just too much for the little guy. That's a lot of beer for a small Martian taking painkillers.
 


Now he needs to get his bags packed and his travel documents in order:






...and we'll wave a fond farewell to our overly-sensitive little friend. Tune in tomorrow for his launch!

See the rest of Al's story here: : Actual Martian to Compete as Terran  ,   Training for the 2013 Martian Marathon,  Learning the Ways of the Terrans,  Taper Time for the Martian Marathon ,  The Continuing Saga of Aloysius Eon ,  A Martian's Many Moods,  Martian Shoe Endorsements,  And then there are Martian Trail Shoes , So what do YOU do at Taper Time? ,  The Martian Transformation ,  A Martian Dreams of Carb-Loading and Like a Bolt from the Blue
