 Yep, that's what the book's about. It was nominated for the LFS Hall of
Fame award a few years ago, which is when I read it. Pretty good, too. In
this book, the northwestern section of the US has evolved from its current
reputation as eco-freaks to anti-government isolationists. When the
government starts to get uppity again and talks of reining them in, they
hatch their plan to leave. Chris --- Chris Hibbert

I understand there has been some concern over the radio activity involved in
launching the Orion space ship design from the surface of the Earth. However
has anyone done a study on that subject? Have the Engineers, as they so
often do, found a way to avoid radio activity in a launch from the surface?
