... Rocket Kits to Build ;)

Sunday the water in St Catherines Lake (Vermont, near NY border) was to cold to swim in, so I decided to build the three Semroc kits I brought. Skyhook, SLS Skyhook, and Astro-1..
 
Was that real camping or car camping? That seems quite heavy to pack in and out :)

The definition of "REAL" camping is:

You have to do like a bear does in the woods!

That was as clean as I could make it!:D
 
Thats what we did at IRW, over here in Scotland.

We were (mostly) all in tents (some people 'cheated' and lived in car-pulled palaces lol ;) ), but as the rain KEPT comming, we all got the kits out & started building. Coincidently, mostly Semroc too. I built a Rawhide, Hokky's kids built a couple of others, etc.....

Cool T-Shirt BTW! ;)
 
I should have known around here it would have been rockets to complete that subject line. At my house my kids would say s'mores or homemade pumpkin donuts with apple cider (my Sunday morning specialty in fall).

We usually camp with other families from church, sometimes up to 12 families. There might be 35 kids mingling from campsite to campsite and they have a ball. Most of us moms bring something along craftwise for kids to do somewhere along the weekend but I never considered rockets. Your picture of you building looks peaceful but the thought of 35 kids building rockets at two picnic tables in the woods is pretty scary. :eek:
 
unless i'm doing 'real' camping... toting everything on my back and 'doing as a bear does in the woods'

this is my A2 this summer... we took two vacations as a family, the first one if finished my A2 and then flew it @ LDRS, the second one i built two fliskits paper models, the CRLIP and the ME. packing list: sleaping bag, cans of food, cans of paint, epoxy, extra sox, a few re-loads, swim suit, extra BP... etc etc. (note: on family vacations i sleap in a tent, and i just keep the rkt stuff in the car;))
 
What campground was that photo taken at :).

It was Van camping... we slept in a tent though...

When I went to TRF 2004, I also campout on the launch field... I slept in the tent WITH my rockets :D. Good thing I did not roll over ;).

My definition of "real" camping is if there is a potted plant next to my lawn chair by the hotel pool. Days in uniform taught me to loathe roughing it. By the way, roughing it is if you don't get HBO and Showtime in your hotel room or if the breakfast buffet closes before 11AM.

:p

Actually, thats how we do it at most lauched I have been to that don't have a porta-potty nearby. If you see a guy headed towards the trees with a roll of paper towels... chances are, he is not going to retrieve a rocket ;).
