|My first Mercury Redstone - I hate the stickers Estes provided, but|
it looks OK from 3 feet away (Click to enlarge).
- I need to fly more - this was partly not my fault, as the weather has sucked on weekends for the past several weeks, and my most motivated launch partner, Duane, has been out of town on work trips for several months now. Still, I have to seize every opportunity I can to launch rockets in 2019, even if it means "contaminating" TARC practices with a few birds of my own.
- I need to get my level 2 - have had the kit for years, but keep making excuses for not doing the build. The procrastination needs to end.
- Need to do better about writing for the blog - this year will have the lowest post count, in part due to the fact I haven't been to many launches in the past few months. Launch reports are one of the highlights of this blog, so launching more will help, but I need to try to achieve at least one post a week on average - under the assumption I have something interesting to post.
