I did not know him.
I did not even know his name.
It would be no coincidence that I was predestined to get involved with Harry Shoaf.

I reached back onto the highest shelf of the bedroom closet that I was cleaning and discovered a large three-ring binder, titled, "Space Saga." It sounded interesting to me. I opened the first page and found there, in handwriting, "Alan Shepard is to write the Forward for my journal." Indeed, what had I found?

I started reading and read all through the night. This was the personal journal of NASA Design Engineer Harry Shoaf, depicting over 40 years of lifetime experiences with the first dreamers-the pioneers of space travel and his friendships with the astronauts!

I was amazed and became excited to experience the inventions, failures, and successes along with Harry as I read his personal diary. I wanted to know Harry, where he lived, and hear him tell his story. On a crazy whim, I made the decision to travel to Cape Canaveral to find Harry and return his journal to him.

This was going to be my journey of a lifetime!
