|The moment you realize you're not going to find the rocket you lost sight of over the tree line...|
Start the post with an obvious fact you have to mention because it would be weird not to, despite the fact everyone already knows it.
2020 has been pretty rough for most of us. Even escaping through rocketry became a challenge for many, as public launches were put on hold for a few months.
Also, I have not felt like writing on this blog in some time. Like most people, I've been distracted.
But I have been building, and even flying. Here are some photographic highlights of the year so far, in no particular order. Just some stuff to look at. I'll drop in a few words, here and there.
|Semroc Cherokee D|
|FlisKits Tres (upper section)|
|Some new builds for 2020|
|First launch of the year|
|My friend David with a special scratch built rocket|
|I call these recovery shots "rocket boudoir photos."|
|Forget the bunny ears. Do this.|
|Lost and found in the woods|
|Going to look for a lost rocket - I have no idea what's on the other side|
|North Coast Rocketry Laser Hawk|
|This is the one picture that's out of order. This launch was mid summer...|
|But this is the same rocket, later in the season, at the larger field.|
|My Estes Cosmic Explorer is another favorite I turn to all the time.|
|A sign of the times - Halloween, and COVID|
|I like to use very long elastic shock cords. It minimizes damage.|
|I decided on removable plastic rivets to retain the nose cone on the FlisKits Tres.|
|A witness mark helps me matchup the holes with the correct side.|
|A quick 3-motor cluster I designed and built in 2-3 days.|
|I like flying Berthas.|
|First flight of the D-Region Tomahawk|
|Not my rocket|
|A recently completed build|
