Camp Molecule is better known as summer camp for chemists.  Every other year ending with an odd number, conferences in different scientific disciplines are held across New Hampshire.  They’re known as Gordon Conferences.  

 

You can see from the website they are held in other places now, but the ones I know of are held in New Hampshire.

Camp starts at the International Terminal at Logan International Airport in Boston.  For those who remember summer camps, you have the buses.  You have to make sure you get on the right bus.  New Hampshire is small, but not THAT small.      Public transit is sparse if you end up on the wrong  bus, so pay attention!

Your driver needs a cigarette to steel his nerves driving through Boston traffic. In other words, your chemicals need to be stored in the bus storage bin before you board.  He is also listening to a close Red Sox-Yankees game on the radio, so respect his nerves.

The first stop is just over the Massachusetts-New Hampshire state line.

The state liquor store.  The Europeans go wild buying the inexpensive liquor.

The conference is fun, but use your chemicals in the approved areas.  Misbehaving chemists will be thrown in the pool of Benzene Rings, so mind your carbon atoms.  There will be lectures and whiskey.

And there you have Camp Molecule.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
