Sorry, I wasn't in the best of moods after my rocket failed. Did get a chance to thank Terry and Bob for the helping me out today. Here is the video, not the best shot, but still interesting. you can see the blow up in super slow-mo.

Nice video, but yeah, sorry. And sorry I couldn't make it up there, but my new blood pressure medicine is still messing with me. I assume Merlin Missiles and the Carter's hotdog guy made it up there?...

Mitchell, Sorry about your rocket, but a great video. My first attempt at L1 drag separated at about 400 feet and went in about 4 different directions. Dont have a video, but the sight is still etched in my mind. There was another redline failure a short time after your attempt, so there were a few burning rockets up there yesterday.

Gary, both Merlin and the hot dog guy were up at the launch yesterday. Thanks for doing the legwork to get Carters to the launches. Much better than bringing PB&J sandwichs.

Don't know if I will make it to many meetings, so see everyone next spring.
