I promise this is the LAST time I’ll be doing a post like this…
I picked this up from the on-site shop during my son’s last Cub Scout Rocket Jamboree. It’s a pretty simple kit, but I wanted to take my time building it and documenting the process. My goal was to really pay attention to the final finish of the rocket. I’ve been reading several other build logs, and I picked up more than a couple of tricks I wanted to try out.

I really should use this blog for more than commenting on calendar-based silliness….
God, I’m a nerd. But this is just too cool not to post.
I’m typing this on my new apple keyboard. (It’s connected to my laptop, I just wanted to get a feel for it before I un-box everything. (Which I can’t do until I get home anyway.) It’s going to take a bit of getting used to, but I am already touch typing on it with about as many mistakes as my MS keyboard.
The whole 2-button-but-really-one button mouse thing is going to take some adjusting, too. seems to work okay, it just doesn’t “feel” right yet.
I think this is where I say something [awesome | cheesey] like:
“No power in the ‘verse can stop us.”
Well I guess it’s time I posted something again. I’ve been busy with things and haven’t really felt the urge to post here. Maybe I should see about incorporating my Twitter stream into this page. Or scrapping the whole thing and using my tumble log instead.
Or not. This post is just an excuse to try out the wordpress app on my new iPad.
Hope you enjoy the video. It was created by a friend of mine.
