Every Journey Starts Somewhere.
Why am I doing this? Well I have a once in a lifetime opportunity; I am driving cross-country with my father from California to Boston. My father (Dan Lickly) was part of the Apollo program, he worked at Draper Labs and was responsible for the navigational software. He has so many stories and details stored in his well above average brain that I hope to capture them in this blog as we go.
Getting my father to talk about Apollo isn’t always easy and while I have a bunch of tidbits I have heard over the years to start me on my journey I hope to solicit more from anyone who reads this. I have the man captive for 5 days, what an opportunity!!
Please feel free to send me ideas to ask him about.
And as my friend Annie Copps and I used to joke about as her father Ed Copps worked with my father, we truly are 2 people that can say, “My Father is a Rocket Scientist”

I’m looking forward to it, I have heard so many stories over the years, I hope to capture a few
I’ve been blessed to be able to say that Dan Lickly is a former colleague, teammate, and acquaintance of mine. Can’t wait to enjoy the trip down memory lane!
Wonderful stories Andrew! Sue and I are enjoying reading the blog. You rock! Annan Paterson
