Well, the plans are set.

I'll be up in Mojave on monday morning to watch the first suborbital launch of SpaceShipOne.

I have to tell you. I'm very excited about this. Space is a place we should have been trying much harder to get to. I've wanted to be there since I was very young. It's where we'll really grow up, once we can leave the gentle nursery of our Earth.

Burt Rutan has been at the forefront of airframe experimentation for a while now, and with the backing of Paul Allen, I think he'll do it again.
