    If you can make it to LDRS on the Salt Flats this year, do it!
    UROC runs Hellfire out there every year, which is a large event on its own. The two events doubled up is a once-in-lifetime (well, 20-year) event. Hasn't happened since 1998 or so (forgive me on the exact year).
    Warning, the salt is unforgiving. Bring water and shade. Get a rental car with insurance; your car will thank you.

    I'm supervising my son's build of a LOC Lil Nuke. We're playing with some ways to make the chute look like a mushroom cloud.
    Finishing the paint jobs on an Estes V2 and Black Star Voyager. After I fix the base coat on the V2 my wife is going to do some custom pinup art on it.
    I have an Estes Space Launch Vehicle in the pre-build phase and am about to order a Mach1 Star Cruiser to push into supersonic speeds.

    my son has a minidx3 that we'll launch if it doesn't get rained out again :(

    I've been working on some electronics. I want to make a very accessible platform for hacking on rocket related electronics. something open source and off the shelf that a high school kid can work with.

    Just finished up my Estes Cosmic Interceptor - been in the build pile for 3 years! And finished up Estes Big Daddy - build pile for 2 years! Went for a Galaxy-themed paint job on the BD. Waiting for custom name decal from Stickershock. This Stay at home thing is doing great for me completing unfinished projects. Next is my Saturn V and Estes Black Star Voyager. Both started about a year ago and just never finished. Here we go!
