This one has been on my bucket list for a couple of years now, just not gonna happen this year. 18 hour drive time, mostly through California, who seems to think that trucks pulling trailers should go 65 mph. This is supposed to keep us safe mixing it up with German cars traveling in excess of 100 mph. Yeah, right....
I do have a question about "Research only" launches though. Does this mean no commercial motors allowed? I can get really close to 5280 ft. with my L1 rocket "Duke Nukem", but not if I have to mix and pour a 38mm motor to qualify.
