Well tomorrow 5-29-04 will be my first launch since rejoining the hobby after a 12 year break. I have a few rockets done and will finish the rest tonight with the kids. I have my camera battery all charged up and hoping the weather and winds hold out. I plan to have a nice right up done for you all to see done by tomorrow night. The kids are excited and so am I.

Actually, I always seem to need a little WD-40. And I always seem to say " I had some WD-40 in my range box but I took it out the other day and never put it back.".

With the drought index here in Florida pushing mid-to-high 500's
take along a fire extinguisher (keep it on the field- not in your vehicle)...

Dan- didn't you say you're in Homestead? Looks pretty
orange and red down there... Be careful!


(Hoping it rains here in Central FL before the NEFAR and SRA
launches next month....)

Great job Dan!

from the website
After looking at these photos I see that we had left all our supplies way to close to the launch site.
I also don't see any fire extinguishers... Glad everything went well (including
restarting the car)!

(Hurray! Some rain has finally begun here in Central FL! )

I had a fire extinguisher in my car. Thats one of the things I didnt forget. I do remember one time back when I was a kid when I did catch a field on fire.
