Thanks. 999 more and I punch my ticket to the Hall of Fame. Not sure I've got that kind of time.

Thanks for the report. Fun reading as usual.

Your flight milestone makes me tempted to grab my logs and see where I am. I know the totals on individual models but I've not added up how many flights I've launched (at least as a BAR I have no idea how many from my first rocketry period in Jr. High/High School though it's a relatively small number).

Great flight report as always, Bill.
I wish I got to fly 25% of what you do.

I know I'm missing a few, but these are the flights I've been able to track on EMRR and RocketReviews since 2001, and the flights I entered in one of my notebooks that survived the 70's.

Start shopping at Wal-Mart and you'll be able to afford to fly more. I had to buy $20 jeans this time, so that will cut into my flying budget.

Not a question of $$, I have over 1K engines/reloads.
Question of suitable flying areas.
