1. Pass minus. It flew on a single booster, no sustainer.1. Fly Stage-a-saurus, my as-yet-unflown 2-stage composite motors rocket (G-F to H-H impulse). This rocket is built, so I should be able to knock this goal out pretty quickly.
2. Build and fly Spruce Goose, an F/G/H rocket with a wooden airframe. This rocket is in concept design stage.
3. Help the TARC team I mentor get to nationals this year. The last two years, we were the first alternate.
*Familiarize myself with reloadable motors
*Build my scratch-build level-1 rocket and get certified
*Get my home-brew chute release operational
*Get better at video editing and post a bunch more to my YouTube channel
As for my wife and our kids, we're doing well health-wise, but my mom got a cancer diagnosis (treatable, so no big worries) just after Thanksgiving, and my wife's mom got a diabetes diagnosis. On top of that, I lost my job and was out of work for about two months before landing a better job, and our girls didn't transition well into remote school.I hope everyone's OK.
