Hi Tom,

I think you need to improve your map reading skills.  I do believe you 
meant Oceanside, Ca.  Also, both Oceanside and Mt. Polomar are in San 
Diego County, the furthest county south along the California coast.

Looking for more pictures and a longer story.  Keep up the good work.

If knew you were going to be in my area I would have like to have had a 
lunch meeting.  Well next time possibly.

Good luck,

>This time I selected Mt Palomar, CA which is conveniently located in the greater LA area. You likely know of Palomar because of the famous 200 inch Hale telescope up at the ~5500 foot summit. Our base was a beachfront hotel in Seaside, CA. 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:
