An informal survey (show of hands) at the meeting showed
about 4-5 people will be attempting the Quick Trip and
perhaps 3 are ready for T-Time.

My goal is to complete the T-Time course (sans soda cans).
My stratdegy is to do right hand wall following.  I tinkererd
some this weekend with an optical sensor for wall following.
It looks promising so I built a prototype and will test
in on the bot soon.  If it doesn't work as planned I will
fall back to using the poloroid sonar module.
