family, one of them being my father and one being my uncle. Shortly after that
I had to deal with more tragedy, the death of two very close friends all with
in a 4 month span. On top of that, I recently separated from my wife of 20
years. We both just felt it was time needed apart and I needed some time to
just chill for a bit. It hasn't been easy but I managed to keep myself together
during it all.
With my van packed with rocket stuff, I attended this past LDRS and had every
intention to sell all my rocket gear, but when I stepped out of my van and seen
a rocket launch for the first time in almost two years, It brought tears to my
eyes and it was then I decided not to give up too soon.
After hanging out at LDRS it didn't take long to realize that everyone at LDRS
was like my second family and that is what made this hobby so awesome for me.
For everyone who helped me through my tough times, I say thanks. I wouldn't
have came back if it weren't for you all.
While I was at LDRS it didn't take long to get the itch to fly again and spend
some money. After spending some time in vendor row, I couldn't help myself when
I walked by the Booster Works tent and purchased a video transmitter kit from
Art. I'm looking forward to testing it out in my old Loc Bruiser (Hot To Go)
that has 30 flights to this day. I will keep everyone posted on how the flight
worked out with some video on my website soon.
Once again I would like to say thanks to all who made my short stay at this
years LDRS an enjoyable one. I am ready to FLY AGAIN. BUFFROC here I come.
