Seaside as in near Sand City, Monterey & Fort Ord? That's quite a drive
down to Palomar, no matter which route you take.
The elevation difference was about 1.6 km and the clocks were separated
for about 24 hr so 15 ns of time dilation is expected.
> Over two days they certainly took lots of footage of the clocks, the car, and some conversations with me. I have no idea how many seconds of actual screen time that might result in. None of it was scripted or rehearsed so I hope I didn't do or say anything too stupid on camera. I'll have more info by tomorrow and update the web page:
