Beautiful launching weather today, so Taylor, Justin, and I went out and burned a few. I've posted details and pictures here:

Here's one thing I'm really proud of... my new range box:

I built it to hold my two launch stands, but then I looked at that long handle and thought, "What can I do with all that extra handle?" and then I realized I could make a really nice rocket carrier out of it.

:eek: Apply new range box technology to the existing problem of how to transport ones rockets. BRILLIANT!!! :cool:

That was a mighty fine idea... if I get to feelin froggy (and feel like hangin out in my mom's husband's shop) I'll have to make up a little rocket tote'n rig. We just use a cardboard box, but that's downright elegant there.

I wanted a box long enough to transport my two launch stands, with the rods entirely enclosed; so I built one using my grandfather's toolbox as a model. Then I thought... gee, I have a lot of unused handle there, what can I do with it?

Glad you all like it. I sure think it's handy!
