1 degree, 13 degrees....almost the same....bone chillin' cold !

I sure hope once I'm the age of my in-laws and retired that I can do what they do....7 months in Florida of October through April and 5 months up here in Michigan when the weather is DECENT (i.e. OVER 60 degrees F) from May through September.

I have lived in Michigan all my life and thankfully since 2 years before my wife & I married I have NOT seen a white Christmas....they are spent down in the decent Florida winter weather.

Once we retire in maybe 15-18 years I will never ever again see another winter by choice.
If it means having to choose only one home we will sell our Main Home and up-north Lake Cottage here in Michigan and we will be Florida bound.

Talc is a real good idea in the cold. I got lazy and didn't do it on the flight right before this one, and the chute never unfolded. Luckily, no damage. Dusted the chute the next time, and it was flawless.


Foose,

Is that a D12 motor or is the Zooch Soyuz just a small rocket? That flame looks pretty big.

Actually that's a B6-4... BT20 core tube. I guess it's just small like most of the Zooch kits, but I think it might be one of tallest in the Zooch line.

I guess it was the camera exposure due to the overcast skies that gave it the extra large glow. Nice shot, btw.

Could be. That's why I like seeing shots taken right at or just before dusk. The flame always looks so much cooler in low light situations.
